Full of heart in classic-Kryptonian tonal mix wholly understanding its titular hero’s lore with *perfection* in lead-casting the bubbly, hope-bursting Melissa Benoist, solid VFX, & storied villains – but overpoliticization & inconsistent writing. 7.5/10.
Plot Synopsis: At 12 years old, Kara Zor-El escapes doom on planet Krypton to find protection on Earth with the Danver family, where she grows up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learns to hide the extraordinary powers she shares with her cousin, Superman.
