Anyone that’s even heard of a comic book knows about Superman. He can bend steel, he can fly, and if Man of Steel is any indication, he’s also a terrible actor. Less is known about his kin beyond his biological and adopted parents. This is where Supergirl enters. Supergirl is actually Superman’s cousin and has come to Earth escaping the havoc on Krypton. In the new CBS series, her character’s been revived to wreak havoc on the baddies in today’s modern age.
Generally, Supergirl is just another superhero trying to just live her life as quietly as she can while keeping National City clean. She’s kind of like one of those fugitives living in Switzerland who act normal, but could kill everyone in the room in just a few minutes. Fortunately for the entire world, she is committed to protecting people from villains who use their powers for evil.
Even without Superman in the picture, Supergirl has the moxy, skills, and ability that helps her deliver on her vision of a better world. The new series is destined to be a game-changer in the superhero genre because it infuses a modern look at an old classic. So, before getting started in that series and losing consecutive Monday nights this fall, get a primer on the 10 things you didn’t know about Supergirl.

Most comic book characters have some sort of shelf life. Multiple actors have played questionable versions of Batman and, eventually, people will stop being able to relate with a one-percenter with identity issues. The Flash has one main superpower so he’s completely limited. Spiderman is a brooding hipster and God knows nobody likes them. Supergirl, however, has unlimited powers, immortal life, and her cousin is kind of a big deal. Plus, whether it’s to heat up their burritos with their eyes or save other humans, people will always ponder what supreme abilities is like. Supergirl is not just a character, but an ideal, in a kicky outfit.
