Supergirl Melissa Benoist is back with more super girl power as the actress has posted images of herself with the super scouts.

Benoist met a young troupe of 6-year-old Girl Scouts on set and posted images to her Instagram adding: “The Super Girl Scouts of Oklahoma dropped by National City today, and I’m pretty sure we had a good time.”

The Super Girl Scouts met with President Obama back in March as, according to their blog, the troupe created a page-turning device for paralyzed or arthritic people made out of LEGOs.

Melissa Benoist also recently surprised 400 moms and their daughters with a special visit and a sneak peek of the Supergirl premiere.

"Supergirl" premieres Monday, October 26 (8:30-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on CBS.

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. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planetKrypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24,Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant(Golden Globe Award winner Calista Flockhart), who just hired the Daily Planet’s former photographer, James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), as her new art director. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her tohelp them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.
