Supergirl has struck - let's meet the main people in her extraordinary life.
'Supergirl' finally premiered on CBS last night (October 26th 2015) and with it we were introduced to the main cast; reviving characters from the original DC comics as well as unveiling new additions to the ever growing superhero world. We learn that Supergirl is the cousin of Superman, similarly now working for the media, who also now has an adopted family and a desire to bring her powers to the surface.
'Supergirl? Not... Superwoman?'
Of course, last night's Pilot also saw the introduction of some new villains, namely Vartox who's known in the comics as the nemesis of both Superman and Power Girl (a later incarnation of Supergirl), and Astra; the twin sister of Kara's mother Alura who's determined to seek revenge on the latter, kill Kara and rule the world. So who else is about to have a massive impact on Kara's life?
Superman's cousin hits the small screen with Melissa Benoist as Supergirl.
Feminist comic book fans have been saying all along that there needs to be more female superheroes brought to screen, and now that desire comes to fruition tonight as 'Supergirl' flies on to our television screens for the first time.
Melissa Benoist stars as brand new TV icon 'Supergirl'
Melissa Benoist plays Kara Danvers (real name Kara Zor-El); the Kryptonian cousin of Superman who possesses much of the same abilities but in a smaller and more adorable package. Benoist is best known for starring in 'Glee', and it is alongside 'Glee''s creator Ali Adler that 'Supergirl' is produced, also bringing together Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg of 'The Flash' and 'Arrow'.

We can all breathe a sigh of relief, there’s no midriff on show here.
The first images of Melissa Benoist as ‘Supergirl’ in CBS’ upcoming series have just been released and of course all the talk is about the heroine’s new costume. The ‘Glee’ actress has dyed her hair blonde to portray the superhero, with the network already giving the series a one season commitment.
Melissa Benoist is your new 'Supergirl'
‘Supergirl’s’ all important costume was designed by Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood, who is also responsible for the look of DC characters ‘The Flash” and ‘Arrow’ on the CW. The costume keeps the character’s traditional colour combination of red, blue and gold, going for a long sleeved top with the famous ’S’ logo, a red skirt, over the knee boots and a long flowing cape.
Harewood will play Hank Henshaw, a former Cia agent who heads up an alien threat team, while Leigh will portray the title character's foster sister, Alex Danvers.
The new additions join a cast that includes Glee star Melissa Benoist as Supergirl, Calista Flockhart, Laura Benanti and Mehcad Brooks.
Last night's season finale of Grey's Anatomy was a serious tear-jerker for fans of the show, as the scriptwriters finally waved goodbye to one of the viewers' favorite characters. Last week, it was apparent that Lexie, one of the show's most popular doctors (played by Chyler Leigh) was in a pretty bad way, trapped in the rubble of a plane crash but many viewers had been keeping their fingers crossed for a dramatic and heroic turn of fate.
It wasn't to be, however and Lexie met a heart-breaking end, after a gut-wrenching reunion with Mark, it was time for final farewells. The show's creator Shonda Rimes posted a lengthy tweet after the show, explaining how hard it had been for her to write this final episode, knowing how much the viewers loved Lexie and how much she had enjoyed working with Chyler. "This finale was incredibly hard to write," said Shonda. "I did not enjoy it. It made me sick and it made me sad. We end the season not knowing anything about the future."
She then added "I love Chyler and I love the character of Lexie Grey. She was an important member of my Grey's family. This was not an easy decision. But it was a decision that Chyler and I came to together. We had a lot of thoughtful discussion about it and ultimately we both decided this was the right time for her character's journey to end. As far as I'm concerned Chyler will always remain a part of the Shondaland family and I can't wait to work with her again in the future."
Leigh, 26, married West, 30, in July 2002 after they worked together on the TV series 7th Heaven.
The pregnancy will not be written into the U.S. drama's storyline, according to her spokesperson, Marcel Pariseau.
He tells People.com, "They are absolutely thrilled and looking forward to the new addition to their young family."

GREY'S ANATOMY star Chyler Leigh has laughed off reports she is the star of a new Internet sex tape.
The actress - who plays Lexie Grey in the medical drama - was purported to be shown naked in the bath in the clip.
But a spokesman for the star has pointed out differences between the footage and Leigh.
The representative tells website TMZ.com that the woman in the video has a tongue ring but no tattoo on her back; Leigh doesn't have her tongue pierced and has had a tattoo since the age of 19.

GREY'S ANATOMY star Chyler Leigh filmed love scenes for a 1997 B-movie with her real life brother.
Fans of the hit TV show have unearthed Kickboxing Academy, and are shocked to discover Leigh kissing her sibling Christopher Khayman Lee, when she was just 15.
While Leigh, 25, plays Lexie Grey in the U.S. show, Lee, 29, is most famous as the Red Power Ranger in Power Rangers in Space.
If ever there were a genre long overdue for a vicious lampooning, it would have to be the cliché-plagued fantasy factory of the witless teen comedy/romance.
The popular jock, the cruel cheerleader, the arty-dreamy bespectacled girl, her shy geek best friend pining for her love -- these stock characters were glaringly unoriginal and badly acted back when John Hughes cauterized his "Pretty In Pink" formula into the heads of vacuous pubescents in the '80s.
Now the time for reckoning has arrived. A whole slew of central casting pop culture denizens -- and the literally dozens of throwaway flicks they inhabit -- get skewered something fierce in the ribald and relentlessly, no-jokes-barred satire "Not Another Teen Movie."
