Take Your First Look at Supergirl

Melissa Benoist suits up. 

CBS’s upcoming series Supergirl will star Melissa Benoist as the 24-year-old Kara Zor El — the cousin of another famous Krypton native you may have heard of. In the show, Supergirl finally decides to stop hiding behind her civilian guise in favor of using her superhero powers for good.

The first images were released today by CBS and Warner Bros. Television and it looks like Supergirl is bypassing the skimpy outfit from the animated series. Don’t be disappointed — it’s all the more practical for saving the world.
