In tonight’s Supergirl, Kara falls under the influence of an alien parasite that feeds off of her while causing her to undergo enticing hallucinations about the life she could have had.
If that sounds familiar to you, there’s a good reason. The episode, “For the Girl Who Has Everything,” is an adaptation of “For the Man Who Has Everything,” a classic Superman story from no less than the creators of WATCHMEN, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.
Supergirl may be a hero from Krypton, but she still needs somewhere to live and work. After a long day grabbing lattes and solving problems for Cat Grant, one of the most successful publishers in National City, she kicks back in her eclectic and surprisingly crafty apartment painting or watching TV with her sister.
