That's because some fans of comic book equality are questioning why Supergirl isn't referred to as Superwoman.

When asked, the showrunners gave a pretty safe answer saying only:

"She's Supergirl because she's Supergirl."

There is already a character named Superwoman, who just so happens to be evil. She could even appear on the show!

But what do U think?? Supergirl? Not yet a woman?
