Superman: The Animated Series Cosplay: Supergirl (Kitsune Dolly) Cosplay 05 JUN 2014

It is pretty much impossible to find anyone who grew up in the 90’s and doesn’t love Bruce Timm’s Superman: The Animated Series television run. Taking a page out of that particular book, American cosplayer Kitsune Dolly, powers up and brings to life Kara In-Ze – better known as Supergirl!

Supergirl appears in Superman: The Animated Series voiced by Nicholle Tom. This version is based on the original Silver Age concept of Supergirl according to writer Paul Dini – “We wanted to do the original version, which is Superman’s cousin from Krypton; [however], we ran into a wall with DC because they insisted that Superman be the last Kryptonian. So we did a compromise: she’s from a small planet in the neighboring system that was colonized by Kryptonians, but they’ve evolved slightly differently.”.

She is depicted as Kara In-Ze, not Superman’s cousin as in the comic book but rather a near-Kryptonian from Krypton’s sister planet of Argo. She lives with the Kent family in Smallville, who tell others that she is Clark’s cousin.

Nicholle Tom reprises her role of Supergirl in Justice League Unlimited. As continued in this show, she and Superman have grown very close, almost like siblings. She joins the Justice League in “Initiation” and assists Green Lantern, Green Arrow, and Captain Atom in fighting a robot based on Brimstone which is attacking an Asian country. In “Far From Home,” Supergirl talks about how she wanted to be seen as more than just ‘Superman’s cousin’. She departs his company when she discovers love for Brainiac 5 of the Legion of Super-Heroes in the distant future.
