Supergirl Meets The Super Girl Scouts

Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl hasn’t taken flight on CBS just yet, but she’s already inspiring legions of future sidekicks.

A troop of Super Girl Scouts recently visited Supergirl’s set, and had the chance to meet Supergirl herself. Benoist then snapped a photo with the Oklahoma-based Girl Scouts, before sharing the epic crossover on her Instagram feed.

It seems that CBS’ Supergirl will make an effort to connect younger female audiences across the country. This latest on-set visit only follows a recent promotional event where Melissa Benonist surprised 400 mothers and daughters who were invited to a special screening of Supergirl’s pilot. As most comic book shows cater to an older, male demographic, it’s interesting, if not inspiring, to see Supergirl give the same attention to younger viewers.


Supergirl premieres October 26 at 8:30 p.m. on CBS.
