Supermans’ cousin is flying onto your screens on Monday, and it’s going to be out of this world.
The story of Kara Danvers, aka Kara Zor-El, begins similarly to Clark Kent’s Kal-El, on a spaceship sent from their home planet of Krypton shortly before it exploded, but with him out and about, she’s never had to use her powers.
That all changes when her adoptive sisters plane starts to go down and she swoops in to save the day, slowly revealing herself to coworkers and friends while working at the (shockingly) local paper.
I embraced who I am and I don’t want to stop.
Melissa Benoist plays Kara, and does an outstanding job in a coming-of-age style show, with Supergirl rediscovering her powers, her way, and the dangers in the world of a superhero.
In a time where TV is overloaded with super hero shows (Flash, Arrow, etc.) including lots of really amazing ones (Gotham, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) this show will do really well at standing out.
Rating 9.5 out of 10 – THIS RATING IS JUST FOR THE PILOT EPISODE.
