Watch: ‘Supergirl’ Argues for Gender Equality in Superhero Names

Feminists unite: Supergirl is ready to take flight — and she’s not happy about that moniker either.

In the latest teaser for CBS’ new fall series, Melissa Benoist’s Kara Danvers (aka Kara Zor-El, aka Supergirl) is pretty peeved that her soaring crime-fighter doesn’t have — what she believes to be — a name equal to the one given to her cousin Clark Kent’s alter ego. But her boss, Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), tries to convince (well, intimidate) her to keep the name.

 

Perhaps Supergirl will accept that there are some nicknames not worth fighting over?

“Supergirl” premieres on CBS at 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 26.
