  • SUPERGIRL Teams Up With The Flash in a Hit and Miss Special

    SUPERGIRL Recap: The Girl Who Has Everything Gets an ‘A’ From Us

    Supergirl herself may be in peril, but Supergirl, the series, is on a roll right now. There might not be any other series on television with more narrative momentum. And there’s certainly not any series that packs...

    SUPERGIRL: Kara Fights Her Doppelgänger in “Bizarro”
