Who is your Supergirl? CBS starts in new campaign

Posted on


Your mother. Your friend. Your wife. A teacher. A mentor. Any one of these women could be your hero, which is exactly what CBS wants to find out with its new campaign for Supergirl.

On Monday, the network will launch mysupergirlis.com, which enables those with a strong and inspiring hero in their lives to celebrate her publicly with a customized graphic that features her name and — if you’d like — a photo, which you can share on Facebook.

Quite literally, the network’s Supergirl is Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), who lands on Earth two decades after her famous cousin, Superman. Kara comes of age working for media magnate Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) alongside her new friend/potential love interest James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) before deciding to embrace her own superhero side.

Check out who the cast considers their heroes:

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