Kara Zor-El, or Kara Danvers, is Superman’s cousin, and in this series she’s played by Melissa Benoist. She’s super-strong, light-speed-fast, and practically unbreakable. She has super freeze breath; telescopic, microscopic, heat and x-ray vision, and super hearing. And, of course, she can fly! Even Superman himself has hinted that his fairer cousin seems stronger than him at times, but that might just be because she doesn’t pull her punches.
The “Supergirl from Krypton” has come a long way since her comic book debut in 1959, but even back then she was ruffling capes. The cover of Action Comics #252 depicts a shocked Superman exclaiming, “Great guns! A girl, flying! It .. uh .. must be an illusion!” To which Supergirl replies, “Look again, Superman! It’s me .. Supergirl! And I have all your powers!”
Kara continues soaring high in the new season as she encounters the infamous Lux Luthor.
