So i was just over on newsarama reading an interview with the writers of the upcoming Supergirl reboot and one part really caught my attention to the point i had to share it. According to the writers
"Green: Everyone just assumes she is like Superman, because she's from the same planet and has the same type of powers. They think she should ostensibly be like he is. But she's a different person, with a different personality. Like any teenager, she would struggle with anyone's assumptions about her, whether they assume she's good or evil or helpful or indifferent.
Johnson: That extends to her powers. Obviously her basic power set is the same as Superman's, but we also want to play with the idea that the yellow sun affects Kryptonian females differently from males. And in some ways, she may be more powerful than Superman. She has different abilities that she's trying to cope with."
So she will have at least some of the same powers but the sun will affect her differently than it does Kal-El? I'm not sure if i like that but it is an interesting way to go and i will be picking it up.
