SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Supermanâ€™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 parentsâ€™ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her fosterÂ family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (ChylerÂ 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(GoldenÂ Globe AwardÂ winnerÂ CalistaÂ Flockhart), who just hired the Daily Planetâ€™s former photographer, James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), as her new art director. However, Karaâ€™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.
