Description for Supergirl Season 2 Premiere Reveals Superman's Motives
Wear this and fight crime with family!

Supergirl Season One was, in my humble but mostly accurate opinion, “okay.” There were definitely some bright spots, but you had to muddle through moralizing, overabundant pep-talks, and a prevalent, teenage-flavored melodrama to reach them. Supergirl certainly holds the potential to be an AMAZING show, but for some reason, it can’t, in a manner, break its own narrative chains. CBS felt similarly, and was willing to let the series fade into obscurity. Thankfully, The CW felt otherwise.

So, Supergirl Season 2 is happening; it’s inhabiting The CW Universe with other DC heroes and it’s FINALLY introducing us to Superman (Tyler Hoechlin). What brings Superman to National City besides a chance to catch up with his similarly powered cousin? Well, the official description for the Supergirl Season 2 premiere, titled “The Adventures of Supergirl,” hints at what instigates the Man of Steel’s arrival.

“THE CW HAS A NEW HERO AND SHE’S BRINGING SUPERMAN WITH HER — When a new threat emerges in National City, Kara/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) teams up with her cousin, Clark Kent/Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin), to stop it. Kara is thrilled to have family in town but it leaves Alex (Chyler Leigh) feeling a bit left out. Meanwhile, Hank (David Harewood) and Supergirl are stunned by the pod that came crashing to Earth. Glen Winter directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg and Jessica Queller.”

Alex feels “left out?” Oh, boy. A thirty-something, highly-trained agent is jealous of the Superman/Supergirl relationship. Yep, there’s that melodrama.

Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Supergirl/Kara Danvers, Tyler Hoechlin as Superman/Clark Kent/Kal-El, Calista Flockheart as Cat Grant, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Chyker Leigh as Alex Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winn Schott, and David Harewood as the g-darn Martian Manhunter!
