Why we think she’s hot:

Seeing as how we ranked Supergirl number two on our list of the Top Fifty Comic Book Babes of All Time, being the gal who plays the 21st century version of her on television speaks more volumes about Melissa Benoist than we ever could. Although the show, unfortunately, feels a little too Network TV’y on occasion, Melissa herself brings enormous emotion to the role. In fact, with even just the slightest adjustment of a cheek muscle, or the way in which she gleams her eye, Miss Benoist is effortlessly capable of moving one to tears. Which kind of makes her acting ability heads and tails above just about every other gal on the telly. We’re talking way-past level-ten strength here, which, when you think about it, that’s actually very apropos when one considers who it is she’s portraying. All hail the new Maid of Might.
