We’ve gathered a collection of Supergirl cosplayers into one place for your enjoyment. Some don the classic skirt and shirt combo, or the look from her animated appearances, or the pin-up inspired Bombshell version of her costume, or even their own creative take on the character. Whatever the look, many of these fine cosplayers go out of their way to embody the cheerfulness that provides a spark of light and hope in the sometimes grim world of superheroes.
Welcome to Supergirl Guys, our regular feature breaking down the highs and lows of CBS’s Supergirl TV show starring Melissa Benoist in the super smiling title role. Your travelling companions on this journey are Superman super-fan Chris Haley, and Flash recap veteran Dylan Todd.
This week, another Cat Grant ex-employee goes rogue for a super-villain team up, but thankfully there's another hero around to help keep the lethal ladies in check. Yes, it's the DC superhero meet-up we've all been waiting for as Supergirl meets The CW's Flash, played by the great Grant Gustin. To mark the special occasion, we opened a wormhole and brought in Dylan's Flash recap partner Ziah Grace!
'Worlds Finest' was directed by Nick Gomez, with a story by Greg Berlanti and a teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg and Michael Grassi.
On March 31 1959, Supergirl made her debut in the pages of Action Comics #252. There were precursors to the character – the most famous was Super-Girl, created by occasional audience proxy Jimmy Olsen in 1958 thanks to a wish and a magic totem --- but it was the strong response to that story that persuaded series writer Otto Binder and artist Al Plastino to create Supergirl for real, as a permanent addition to Superman’s supporting cast.
CBS’ Supergirl as of yet lacks a formal Season 2 renewal (given the fun of last night’s crossover, expect one any day), though that hasn’t stopped Kara from keeping an eye on Season 2. Not only is an erstwhile Wonder Woman likely to take part, but so too might Supergirl Season 2 bring in clone of Superman himself.
Apart from the initial trailer, Supergirl’s imminent Flash crossover let fly a few quick clips in a behind-the-scenes featurette, but the real deal has arrived, every bit as adorably as you dreamed. Watch super-sparks fly (with plenty of Arrow, Legends references and meta-humor in our longest look yet!
Supergirl has played every bit of homage to prior productions as her DC counterparts, finding roles for just about every other Kara Zor-El, so might Wonder Woman be next? Supergirl producers reveal an authoritative role in mind for Lynda Carter come Season 2, you know, presuming Supergirl gets a Season 2 (it’s going to get a Season 2).
The moment we knew for certain that Supergirl would meet The Flash, rays of sunshine burst forth from the combination of TV’s lightest heroes at a time we sorely need that. Now, everyone literally gets ice cream in quick clips from the “Worlds Finest” crossover, nestled in a new behind-the-scenes featurette.

This week, the secret history of the Martian Manhunter, the secret origin of Silver Banshee, and the return of Dean Cain, plus Supergirl versus the military: Dawn of Injustice. 'Manhunter' was directed by Chris Fisher, with a story by Derek Simon, and a teleplay by Cindy Lichtman & Rachel Shukert.
The Flash has proven to be one of the most popular superhero adaptations on television, rising above the standard of shows like Smallville, Arrow and even Agents of SHIELD. It's generally regarded as the go-to show for upbeat superhero adventures in a world where Superman levels entire city blocks and Batman asks him if he bleeds. However, there’s one aspect of The Flash that doesn’t quite sit right with a lot of viewers, and that’s the illegal metahuman prison underneath STAR Labs.
This is how it starts: The Flash fights a bad guy who can turn himself into mist, and when they catch him, they don’t know what to do with him --- but they have a super-science particle accelerator under their feet which can be converted into a holding cell, so off he goes to lockup. Then they fight a guy who can turn his skin into steel, and he could easily break out of any regular prison, so it only makes sense to lock him up somewhere he can’t break out, and soon they have an entire prison, nicknamed "The Pipeline".
