This has been bugging me a bit so I wanted to ask someone. What are Mon-el's powers? He's very strong but not as strong as Kara and can leap great distances but is he indestructible? They rarely focus on what he can do.
Here is what we know.
“No heat vision, no X-ray vision, but you’re strong.
As strong as Kara?
Ha, not even close. No freeze breath, no flight, but you’re leaping is fantastic, I’m talking tall buildings in a single bound kind of stuff.”
“I might not have your hearing, but mine’s pretty good.”
“You’re dedicated, you punch really hard.
Not as hard as you, yet.
“I know I don’t need a motorcycle, Jimmy, I am a very fast man, but I would very much like one.”
So it seems like he has super strength and super speed/leaping, and perhaps other heightened senses.
We also know that he has a lead allergy and they couldn’t get a needle in him when he was in a coma. I don’t know if that makes him indestructible, except for lead, or not.
Dear Liza.. can I come here freely and fangirl over Supergirl?? because I am loving this season!!! I miss Cat, sometimes, but so far, every episode has been really good..
YES! I’m so glad I watched this season. I liked season 1, but I wasn’t super engaged, so when I heard that Calista wasn’t going to be in many eps I wasn’t excited. I let all the eps pile up on my DVR before Christmas and then I finally binged watched over the holidays.
I’m so glad I did! I love this season. And I pretty much love all the story lines. I’m finding James a bit pompous and hypocritical, and the whole Guardian thing a bit out of left field, but other than that everything is really strong. (and the Guardian thing is growing on me.)
Kara is still strong and amazing and growing.
The sister storyline with Kara and Alex is still heartwarming and compelling.
Love Maggie and Alex’s love story. LOVE. Alex’s coming out story was so incredibly beautiful, and they are perfect.
Winn at the DEO is gold. He’s great comic relief in that position. I like him a lot more than I did in season 1.
J’onn J’onzz is awesome and has had an amazing arc this season.
Lena Luthor is deliciously mysterious. I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about Katie McGrath, because the only think I’d seen her in is that Hallmark Princess movie and I thought she was pretty weak, but she is perfectly cast for the role.
Brenda Strong kills as Lillian Luthor. I’ve always thought she had a terrific presence on screen and she’s excellent.
Plus the wink wink, nudge nudge stunt casting is fantastic. Linda Carter, Helen Slater, Dean Cain, Teri Hatcher, Kevin Sorbo?? Amaze-balls.
Then Mon-El. Could he be any cuter? Or any funnier? Or more charming? Or have a better growth arc? Or more interesting storyline? (*cough* hiding the fact that he’s the Prince of Daxam *cough)
But most of all I love Kara and Mon-Els chemistry. Off the charts. I ship it. (And while some people use that term loosely, I don’t.)
I’m so looking forward to the next batch of episode, everything I’ve heard about what’s coming up, sounds incredible!

STORY BY: Michael Grassi
TELEPLAY BY: Yahlin Chang and Caitlin Parrish
BASED ON: The Characters Appearing in the DC Comics
Supergirl is about to step into the hallowed halls of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude.
In the Feb. 29 episode, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) heads to Superman’s icy headquarters in an effort to learn how to defeat Indigo (Laura Vandervoort).
“Seeing the Fortress is something I wanted to do since the beginning of the show,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says. “What’s really fun about it is it’s almost an amalgamation of every Fortress that’s ever been seen. There are bits of it that are right out of the comics, like the key to let you in, and we have Kelex, the Kryptonian robot in the tomb. Then there’s other parts that echo the [Richard] Donner version as well, and there’s other stuff that’s brand new. That was really fun to be able to do.”
“It was really exciting to see those small touches,” adds executive producer Ali Adler, who likens the Fortress to a Virginia Woolf essay. “It really is the ultimate Room of One’s Own — he builds this amazing place of solitude. I brought [The Big Bang Theory’s] Bill Prady to the set, and he was just blown away by this moment where Supergirl is walking through the Fortress.
Describing the Fortress as “magical,” Benoist praises the show’s rare but poignant inclusion of the Man of Steel. “It’s fun how we flirt with the idea of Superman being part of this world — how it is Kara’s story, but they are still family,” she says. “I love the way that they’ve included him in Kara’s story with the messaging and things like that. This was the pinnacle of that. When we walked in and did that scene, it felt pretty epic.”
