I'm really nervous for the second season of Supergirl. I very rarely like superhero TV shows. I started off very excited for Smallville, but it never took. I watched all of Birds of Prey out of some misguided sense of solidarity to all the female heroes in it, but it wasn't easy for me. Then I gave Arrow, Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow all a fighting chance, but I just never got hooked. The only shows I've ever truly liked are Gotham, Agents of SHIELD and Supergirl. If you notice the trend there.. I apparently just don't like any CW shows. So with Supergirl switching from CBS to The CW for season 2, I'm nervous that it's going to have the teen drama feel that makes me tune out almost immediately. But luckily before that potential cord-cutting, I get to immortalize Kara in my collection with this great Multiverse figure. The previous production shots of her looked pretty odd, but in person I found her to be a lot better than I expected. I'm very happy overall. Let's check out Supergirl below!
Mattel doesn't have the best track record for actor likenesses and Melissa Benoist has a very unique face that must be difficult to capture. But I honestly don't think this is half bad. It's better than the DC Collectibles Statue (which I think was cancelled) and the first solicits for the upcoming DCC action figure.
One thing I love about Melissa Benoist and this costume design is that it shows off her strong physique while still looking young and feminine. I wish I had shoulders like that.
So I touched her up a tiny bit. Her eyelashes were uneven so I balanced them out. I also added a little bit of pinkish eyeshadow above her eyes. It's not super noticeable, but it makes her look more symmetrical.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with the DCC New 52 Supergirl.
