Storyline

Years ago, Krypton was about to explode and Kal-El was sent to Earth to escape that fate. However, his older cousin, Kara, was also intended to accompany the infant as his protector. Unfortunately, Kara was accidentally diverted into the timeless Phantom Zone for years before finally arriving on Earth decades later and found by her cousin who had grown into Superman. Years later, Kara Danvers is a young professional adrift in a thankless job until a fateful crisis ignites a sense of purpose using Kryptonian powers she had long hidden. Inspired, Kara decides to emulate her cousin's superheroic ways, only to find her foster sister introducing her to the secret Department of Extra-Normal Operations, dedicated to fighting alien menaces including those Kara inadvertently led to Earth. Now with such help, the Maid of Might takes her place as Earth's newest champion with new friends and enemies challenging her world. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

Kara's foster parents are named Jeremiah and Eliza Danvers, a change from the previous comics in which the Danvers first names were Fred and Edna. In Peter David's run, Linda's parents were Fred and Sylvia Danvers. However, when the 2016 Supergirl comics were released as part of DC Rebirth, Kara's foster parents were given the same names as the ones in the show as that series would adapt a number of elements from the TV series.

How does this have a 6.5 average when all I see is 1 and 2 star reviews?!
8 January 2019 | by ioanaalexandramirceaSee all my reviews

First of all, I get the need to open people's minds to change, to problems in society and political context, like all these good comic books have always done, but this is just sooo badly made it's cringy all the way and shoots itself in the foot I don't feel empowered in any way as a woman by this show and me as a girl would've changed the channel in an instant. Bad story writing, horrible dialogue, boring main character that says more than does and a cast of secondaries that focus solely on the fact that she's a woman/girl and, for some reason, that makes her better than Superman. Say what!?!? Is that what feminism and women empowering is? Since when? Making the same mistakes some feminists accuse men of doing is not going to balance the scale. And forcing a show to run on just to progress social and political agendas while other good shows get cancelled is worse... I mean Disney cancelled Lucifer once they bought Fox, for example because..what?? It was about the devil? Are you kidding me?? Having a charismatic Devil with a great story is bad, but having a lame arse wanna be with a lesbian sister is better for kids, right? WOW! All in all this show is Superlame...
