CBS soars onto the superhero bandwagon with Supergirl, which arrives in late October, starring Melissa Benoist. It’s the story of Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin, who also traveled to Earth, but has chosen to keep her superpowers a secret. Instead, she works as an assistant to a media mogul (Calista Flockhart), until she finally embraces her true identity with the help of James “Don’t Call Him Jimmy” Olsen.
Early reviews have been great – and fans are predicting Supergirl will be the highest-rated superhero series on TV this season. In preparation for the premiere, let’s take a look at some of the other female superheroes who are kicking ass.
