Supergirl video: See Melissa Benoist's new powers in never-before-seen footage

Posted on


CBS released new footage from Supergirl on Monday that shows off a number of the foes Kara will be facing when the show debuts next month.

Supergirl stars Glee alum Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El, who escaped Krypton amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now, at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be — and boy, do her powers rock, as evidenced in the new trailer.

Fall TV preview

Supergirl premieres Monday, Oct. 26 at 8:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
