** It's still worth noting that, even though superheroines have been common in comics and cartoons for decades, they were still quite rare in superhero movies and TV shows by the time the ''Supergirl'' pilot was aired in October 2015. At that point, both the MarvelCinematicUniverse and the Franchise/{{Arrowverse}} had introduced only a couple of token heroines. In fact, before ''Supergirl'' there hadn't been live-action superhero production with a female lead since 2005's ''Film/{{Elektra}}'', and the last actually successful example of this (since both ''Film/{{Catwoman}}'' and the 1984 ''Film/{{Supergirl}}'' were flops, and ''Elektra'' was hardly a financial success either) had been ''Series/WonderWoman'', made some 40 years earlier. So for people who don't read superhero comics or watch the cartoons, "girls can be superheroes too!" may still have been a case of SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped.
