Earlier this week, ComicBook.com reported that executive producers of CBS's Supergirl were planning on bringing more female supporting characters -- and more female superheroes -- in to the series soon.
"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," Adler said when asked whether Kara might interact with more women who aren't her sister or her boss.
When pressed for whether some of those people might be a little more super, she said, "These are all very good questions," laughed, and then said, "Yes."
So...who do we hope to see come to National City in the near future? Read on...!
If there's one character who has been the overwhelming favorite fans have asked to see on Supergirl, it's Power Girl.
The Earth-2 version of Supergirl, Power Girl has a long and complicated history...but has also been a traditional favorite of DC Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, who plays a role in their TV slate.
Taking cues from Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner's recent series, Power Girl could be a cool, fun, girl-power addition to the cast.
The only problem? Finding an origin for Kara that differentiates her from...err...Kara.
She's likely off the table because of her ties to the Teen Titans, but it's worth considering that M'gann M'orzz could very well turn up in the eleventh episode of Supergirl -- which deals with Mars, J'Onn J'Onzz's history and White Martians.
Y'know. Like M'gann.
She might LOOK and ACT like a Green Martian, but she's actually a white one...and it would be kind of cool if, after squaring off with some of her kind in a future episode, J'Onn and Kara found themselves siding with M'gann for future stories.
The niece of John Henry Irons and briefly a superheroine named either Starlight or Vaporlock, Natasha would be a breath of fresh air on the show.
She would definitely be a darker, more sophisticated influence on the series, and her uncle's connection to Kara's cousin would make for some interesting conversations if the two met in costume.
And, hey, it would stealthily establish Steel as existing in the world of the show, opening up the possibility we could see him down the line.
Amertek, the weapons company John Henry Irons worked for, appeared on a poster for Season One of The Flash, so clearly there's some thoughts about these characters going on in the TV offices...!
Another character with strong ties to Geoff Johns, Stargirl has already appeared in live action in an episode of Smallville.
She's also part of the Justice League United, a team whose final series of adventures before cancellation felt a little bit like a mission statement from DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
The biggest reason we want to see her, though? Well, we've already had one reference to Opal City on the show, and nothing would make me happier than to bring some elements of James Robinson's classic Starman run into Supergirl.
Why? Well, becuase she's a blank slate. She's a character of color. And she's being featured in the DC Super Hero Girls line of products alongside Supergirl.
One of the only problems with this character is that she's got backstory with H.I.V.E., currently appearing on Arrow, not Supergirl. That said, most people know little or nothing about her and would likely assume that in her case "hive" means something totally different anyway.
While each of the previous names and faces brings something fresh to Supergirl, Bumble Bee would bring the ability for Supergirl to bring something fresh to a character.
The downside? Well...she's kind of...Wasp-like, isn't she?
