Supergirl: Melissa Benoist explains how she would defeat Batman

Plus, how she’d survive other classic movie scenarios

Posted on

Supergirl has proven that she’s not easy to kill (and not just because of her alien DNA). But how would she save herself — and others — if she were placed into some classic life-or-death situations in film?

For example, how would Supergirl have fared against Jaws? Would she have saved everyone on the Titanic? And what would happen if she came up against a Sharknado? We asked star Melissa Benoist all of those questions — not to mention how she’d beat Batman — to create Supergirl’s Survival Guide. Check it out above. 

Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
