SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

It is corny as hell, and that will turn people off or pull people in, with so many gritty Superhero shows lately, Supergirl tries to break that pattern with some light-hearted adventure. Personally i see it as a breath of fresh air in these gritty worlds "post-Dark Knight" but if they go down this route they need to build the characters to drive a connection with the audience and keep people coming back again, and again.
