Have Mercy: Supergirl Adapts Alan Moore

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 Set Visit: CatCo and Kara's Apartment

Embodying Supergirl: An Interview with Melissa Benoist

As believable as she may be on CBS’s Supergirl, Melissa Benoist isn’t actually a super hero. I say this only because when you meet her, you can’t help but feel like you’re meeting the real deal—not an actor, but the newly emerged super hero that many of us have come to love. The reason for this is both simple and wonderful. If there really were people walking around on our Earth with super powers, you’d want them to be like Benoist.

Cool as a Cat: An Interview with Supergirl's Calista Flockhart

Who says you need to be kind to be inspirational? Certainly not Cat Grant, the National City media mogul played to perfection by Calista Flockhart on Supergirl. As the C.E.O. of CatCo, Cat runs her company with the precision of a stiletto heel. She demands perfection of her employees and is quick and easy with the pointed remarks and threats of termination when she doesn’t get it. But harsh as they may be, her methods work.

Keeping Supergirl Grounded: An Interview with Supergirl's Chyler Leigh

And she thought her life was complicated with one alien coworker…

As the human sister of the show’s titular hero, it would have been easy for Supergirl’s Alex Danvers to have been relegated to plotlines revolving around family drama and romance and to serve as an easy damsel-in-distress for Kara. So kudos to both the show’s producers and actress Chyler Leigh for not going the traditional route and instead crafting a non-superpowered character who is every bit her sister’s equal.

For the Winn: An Interview with Supergirl's Jeremy Jordan

While Winn Schott may reside in the loneliest corner (at least, for now!) of Supergirl’s love triangle, he contributes far more than a wistful smile. He created her awesome suit and regularly provides tech support when she’s unable or unwilling to depend on the D.E.O. In short, he’s the best friend that a young super-powered alien trying to find her heroic way could have.
