Supergirl has arrived, and she looks incredible. The first photos of Melissa Benoist as the iconic superhero for the new CBS series were released today, and this Kara Zor-El is ready to fly.

The Supergirl star's kick-ass costume was designed by three-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood, who also dreamed up the suits for two other DC Comics shows, The Flash and Arrow on the CW—she also created the ensembles for the films Into the Woods, Alice in Wonderland, Memoirs of a Geisha, and Chicago, among others.

Aside from Benoist, other series regulars include Calista Flockhart (who's been cast as Kara’s boss Cat Grant), Mehcad Brooks (who will star as Kara’s love interest Jimmy Olsen), Chyler Leigh (who will play Kara’s doctor sister Alex Danvers), and David Harewood (as villain Cyborg Superman). Production on the pilot started this week in Los Angeles, and we can't wait to see the new Supergirl in action.
