Supergirl origin story

There can be no new superhero show on TV without at least a hint of an origin story, and an origin story for Supergirl means that poor ol’ Krypton has to suffer destruction again. So this new Supergirl international promo begins with Krypton blown to bits, but in showing those early days, it also features an explanation of the young Kryptonian’s purpose. That purpose is pretty neat, too: she’s meant to safeguard her brother as he is sent to Earth, as it turns out.

That makes some of the “hapless girl in the city” stuff from the six-minute preview seem even more wonky and out of place, but also gives the show a neat premise that will hopefully take hold as the show goes on. Check out the new promo below. Read More »
