Supergirl is an action-adventure drama based on the DC character Kara Zor-El, Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin. After 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth she decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton 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.

However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over. Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships. Though her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.
