CBS has found theirSupergirl. Reports incdicate that Glee star Melissa Benoist, will take the role of Kara-Zor-El, Superman's cousin who also escaped the death of Krypton and found her way to Earth.
Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped 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.
With their sister network, The CW's, success with Arrow and The Flash, it looks like CBS wants a piece of the DC pie. Let's just hope it pans out better than Constantine.
Are you a fan of superheroes? Oh good, 'cause Bad Fanfic Friday is about to ruin those too!
Lizzy, a seriously underweight girl with an affinity for pink and a need to describe every mundane detail of her morning routine boards a plane to Oklahoma that (spoiler alert) ends up in GOTHAM. Confusion and a run in with Batman follow.

For those unaware, Flashpoint was a five-issue miniseries authored by Geoff Johns, and featuring art by Andy Kubert. Glorious art like this:
Flashpoint is the story of an alternate universe without Superman or The Flash, and with Wonder Woman and Aquaman's nations stacked up against one another on the tipping point of engaging in all-out war. And of course there was Thomas Wayne who was Batman, driven insane after his son Bruce was murdered in Crime Alley. What up Thomas Wayne?
Kind of a trip, right? Kind of awesome, right?
So, with the world pretty much f**ked seven ways from Sunday, with an ultra-violent war raging between Atlantis and Themyscira (plunges sections of Europe into the ocean..), Barry Allen being the only one who could remember a brighter, better world, pre-Flashpoint, has to muster up the strength and courage to restore his powers so he can time travel back to that fateful day and fix the mess he made.
Annd the big twist here is that the horrific post-Flashpoint world was a manifestation of Barry Allen traveling back in time to rescue his mother from being killed by Reverse-Flash.
The Flashpoint storyline was adapted into an animated feature film, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, and is one of the most widely-acclaimed, best reviewed animated DC Universe movies. Check out the trailer below:
This morning, DC Comics, creators of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and countless other iconic heroes, officially closed their New York Offices, their home since 1934.
Marvel responded to the news, by offering a tearful gif of Rocket Raccoon. While, DC Comics is fine and will thrive in their new LA home, NYC was the birth place of hero comics, and has been a part of their culture from the very beginning.
