Our post-millennial magnificent obsession with Superheroes, be they Avengers, X-Men, Fantastic Four, has led to a pretty awesome sub-genre of cool superhero chicks. We fanboys have been panting or drooling over "superhotties" like Mrs. Fantastic, Black Widow and, yes, most definitely Storm, for over a decade now.
But it wasn’t until CBS announced a new series for this fall that we started thinking about Supergirl for the first time in years, which we think is crazy because, simply put, she is absolutely the greatest of all time female hero. Honestly, no other lady character even comes close to matching her achievements.
Sure, Mrs. Fantastic has got a pretty amazing contortionist act going on (which might be fun in bed, but as a long term super-power seems pretty weak). Black Widow doesn’t even have a superpower; at the end of the day she’s just a kick-ass spy. Mystique is wicked awesome but, seriously, not only is she a villain but even Magneto seems scared of her crazy ways. And please don’t get us started on classic pretenders to the throne like Bat Girl or the MC2 parallel universe’s Spider Girl. Not. Even. Close.
No. In the pantheon of awesome “Super Chicks” there can be only one. Her name is Supergirl and here’s why.

This is the ultimate reason why Supergirl is the greatest superhero of all time. She is, for a lot of her existence, just a teenage girl. Has anyone met a teenage girl recently? Talk about people who suffer from mood swings, random acts of craziness and an insane amount of poor critical-thinking choices. Your average teenage girl’s decision-making process often seems about as normal as those of your average arch-villain. Couple that sort of behavior with the fact that Supergirl has more legitimate super powers than the entire rest of the League of Justice combined and chew on that for a while. Would you tell her she couldn’t go to the mall? Or that curfew was before midnight? Would anybody in their right mind do or say anything to piss off Supergirl? We think not. Not if you wanted to avoid the world’s worst meltdown. Fortunately for comics and TV fans everywhere, master criminals usually aren’t quite sane either.
