Supergirl Supergirl is a female counterpart to the DC Comics Superman. As his cousin, she shares his super powers and vulnerability to Kryptonite. She was created by writer Otto Binder and designed by artist Al Plastino in 1959. She first appeared in the Action Comics comic book series and later branched out into animation, film, television, and merchandising. In May 2011, Supergirl placed 94th on IGN's list of the Top 100 Comic Book Heroes of All Time.
This trailer (or one very like it anyway) was leaked online a while ago but was quickly taken down. Now, Global Entertainment has officially released it, so if you still haven't watched the Supergirl pilot, check out Melissa Benoist in action as Kal El's cousin after the jump..
TV has superhero fever and DC is a big part of that. The DC TV universe is expanding. Arrow has spawned a number of spinoffs and helped usher in a new television universe. Not only are more DC shows coming to the CW, but also other networks. DC properties are a hot commodity right now. The expansion of DC's television world raises some thoughts. Which characters should get his/her own show? The Question is a character I think everyone should consider.
DC Animation has been a dominate force for many years. Whether it be in film or TV, the animation division rarely, if ever, fails. But, in recent years, DC animation has been quite absent on the TV side of things. And the DC animated movies projects have been mixed in terms of quality. I think its time for a revisit to greatness. The DC Animated Universe (DCAU) was the epitome of excellent animation for DC. It needs to return.
