Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our new video series. You think you know comics? Well here’s a few things you might not know!

With Supergirl's new CBS TV series set to debut this fall, this week we're taking a closer look at the Maid of Might, Superman's most famous and convoluted cousin. Find out how Kal-El might have been the last son of Krypton but not its last daughter, why Supergirl used to change clothes in a fake tree, and how this innocent young girl from another world came to fall in love with a space horse, as well as several other equally interesting facts.

Show notes:

  • It is more accurate to say that Argo City was destroyed when meteorites destroyed the lead shielding that was protecting its denizens from the kryptonite Argo City's ground had already been turned into, but the story is confusing enough already.
  • You can read Kara Zor-El's earliest adventures in Showcase Presents Supergirl.
  • The New 52 Supergirl series is pretty good.
