Supergirl Enlists Female Superheroes

“Supergirl” executive producer Ali Adler has revealed that CBS’ superhero drama “Supergirl” is planning to introduce other female superheroes in future episodes of its first season.

Asked whether Kara (Melissa Benoist) will interact with other female characters aside from her sister Alex (Chyler Leigh) and boss Cat (Calista Flockhart), Adler tells ComicBook.com: “We’re actually doing that now in our backorder from CBS, so we’re actually working on that right now. Absolutely. There might be a little twist to that too.”

Asked if these new female characters would be superpowered: “These are all very good questions, [but] yes.” One such likely role is that of Cameron Chase which former “Buffy” alum Emma Caulfield is playing. In this incarnation she’s a stern FBI agent.
