15 Reasons Why Cat Grant Is the Best Part of ‘Supergirl’

When Supergirl first premiered on CBS, we knew we had a fun superhero show with a feminist twist. Melissa Benoist may be doing a wonderful job of holding her own as the lead character. But it’s really Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) who steals the show! As Kara’s boss and an overall powerful woman, Flockhart makes Cat an instantly likable character. Whether you love her or love to hate her, there are plenty of reasons why Cat Grant is the best part of the hit series!

1. She doesn’t see anything wrong with being a “girl.”

Cat’s speech in the pilot about why there is no problem with emphasizing the “girl” in “Supergirl” proved this was the feminist superhero show of our generation.

2. Her “spin around in a chair dramatically” game is on point.
