Everyone wants to be in the superhero game these days. After the long-running success of Smallville on a rival network, US TV network CBS wants in on the action too. That's why it made Supergirl: the series adaptation of the DC Comic companion to Superman.
Supergirl centres around Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin who also fled Krypton to Earth before its destruction.
She starts out as just an assistant, but finds it in herself to fly and save her city from peril.
CBS posted a 7-minute first-look piece on YouTube, and hotdamn I'm excited for the show after watching.
From the looks of things, the show might land on SyFy in Australia. We'll keep an eye out for <em<Supergirl!
