If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

With Supergirl season 2 premiering this week, viewers and fans are gearing up for twenty-two fresh new stories starring the Girl of Steel. Last season saw adaptations of some unexpected characters and stories, including the Hellgrammite and the Master Jailer, but I'm willing to bet that the show's producers won't go so far as to adapt these five storylines from Supergirl's storied history, encompassing her time as Superman's cousin, a blob monster from another dimension, an angel that is on fire, Superman's fake daughter, and back again.

Show notes:
