With Superman‘s cousin set to fly onto television screens in a few weeks, DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee says fans should also expect to see more of Supergirl‘s comic book adventures in the near future as well.
“We’d be remiss if we did not use [the show] as an opportunity,” Lee told IGN in an interview. “If you look at all the shows, we’ve tried to do things that both tie in directly into the core mythology of the show itself. But a lot of times you see the best stories featuring, let’s say Green Arrow or The Flash, those are the ones which see the greatest lift when a show becomes a hit.”
As for whether that meant DC has plans for a new “Supergirl” solo series — her last title wrapped in March 2015 with Issue #40 — Lee wouldn’t say, but he did promise that DC does have plans to meet fan demand one way or another.
“I think you’ll see an interesting mix of Supergirl content come out,” Lee stated. “Some of which will closely mirror what’s going on in the show, but there’s some of the great stories that we publish that we will put out.”
The DC Comics-based show centers on Kara Zor-El (Benoist), a Kryptonian stranded on Earth following the destruction of her home planet Krypton. Assuming the name Kara Danvers, she decides to come out of hiding at the age of 24 and really use her super abilities for good.
“Supergirl” arrives on CBS on October 26 at 8:30 p.m. EST. Developed by producers Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler and Andrew Kreisberg, the series stars Melissa Benoist, Calista Flockhart, David Harewood and Chyler Leigh.
