Comic book television shows are becoming a big deal right now. With 16 non-superhero television series currently in the works, Arrow, The Walking Dead, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and the many upcoming fall shows based on a comic book property, it's high time one of the female heroes from the world of comics got her own shot, right?

Luckily, that's exactly what's happening, according to E! Online. Warner Bros. and DC Comics are shopping around a Supergirl Tv show to various networks. Producer Michael Green is said to be attached to the project. He also produced other comic-adapted shows like the upcoming Gotham, Smallville, and Heroes.

Considering that the comic book market continues to grow, which has a lot more women now calling the comic book world home, it's a smart move to give one of DC's more iconic female characters, that's not already attached to a film, a starring role on a television show, especially since shows like Arrow and Smallville had a pretty heavy female viewership.

Our only question now is "how soon before she becomes a Red Lantern?" Who would you like to see take on the role of Supergirl and what would you expect from this show?
