Personal Quote: "Great Flaming Pits of Apocalypse"
Melissa Benoist is doing the same thing for CBS’s Supergirl. It’s a different kind of charm and likeability, but it’s just as irresistible. She’s got the added benefit of somewhat improved stories and VASTLY improved effects and action. It’s so refreshing to see a show about a Kryptonian that doesn’t seem to shy away from showing her being, well, Super. But in some ways that makes it even more impressive that Benoist stands out like she does. She’s an amazingly natural blend of determination, stubbornness, vulnerability, awkwardness, optimism, strength, and most of all joy.
It takes a special kind of person to inhabit the role of a superhero and feel natural and at ease. Many modern superhero films, like the Dark Knight Trilogy, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and even the CW’s wonderful DCTVU add more “realistic” trappings to help with the process. Not to say this is a bad thing–those are all excellent examples of superhero based media– but there’s something unapologetically pure about the comic-bookiness of Wonder Woman and Supergirl. Whether it’s Lynda Carter’s million-dollar smile or Melissa Benoist’s endearing (and often adorkable) laugh, both women are at ease in their roles in a way only Christopher Reeve was able to rival.
