Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Introducing a brand new superhero--the beautiful and mighty Girl of Steel in her very first adventure. Her name is Kara, and she's Superman's cousin from Krypton. Coming to Earth on a mission to save her dying city, Supergirl has to find and recover the Omegahedron, a source of almost unlimited power. But it's fallen into the hands of an amateur witch named Selena--who intends to use it to rule the world! To get it back, Supergirl has to fight not only evil humans, but the unimaginable forces of Black Magic (including a hundred-foot monster made of pure energy), and make a perilous journey into the forbidden depths of the Phantom Zone.
Her first great adventure.

Linda Lee: My ears what? Lucy Lane: Pierced. Like and you know, I take a needle, and then I heat it up, dab it with some alcohol and, zap, all the guys go crazy. Linda Lee: Because I have holes in my ears? Lucy Lane: What, are you putting me on? Sometimes I can't figure you out, Linda.
Selena: Get out of my house, Nigel, and don't come slithering back. Nigel: Listen, Selena, I'm the only one who can save you from yourself. You *need* me. Selena: Like an Eskimo needs a lawnmower, kiddo. Nigel: I'm warning you, Selena. Don't be so shortsighted.
