With the premiere of Supergirl on CBS looming closer than ever (closing in on a month left!) we were thrown a tasty little morsel to help us bide our time. As you’ve probably heard, the show stars Melissa Benoist as the titular character Kara Zor-El; reluctant to be anything but ordinary after living so long in the shadow of her well known super-cousin. But become a superhero she must, and we get to watch her story unfold thanks to series producers Ali Adler (Chuck), Andrew Kreiberg, and Greg Berlanti (Arrow).

There’s no shortage of superheroes on TV, and we don’t just mean the ones that topline their own shows. Nope, if you have a superhero show, it’s just an invitation to have more superheroes come and help save the day because that’s just the way it goes. Arrow welcomed Black Canary, The Flash ushered in Firestorm, and it sounds like Supergirl will play host to Red Tornado some point later this fall. Long a member of the expansive DC Comics family of heroes, Red Tornado’s never really gotten his due, but maybe now, with the help of the Girl of Steel, he can get his 15 minutes of mainstream fame.
