"Supergirl" is a superhero TV series based on the life of the DC comic book character Supergirl. The series was adapted for TV by Ali Adler, Greg Berlanti, and Andrew Kreisberg with the first season of the show premiering back in 2015 and running ever since. "Supergirl" has received a strong following as fans watch the female protagonist fight evil. The trailer for the third season of the series was released recently at San Diego Comic-Con and fans were shocked by some of the material they saw in the trailer as the third season promotes a radical change for the character of "Supergirl".

Season 3 will see Kara struggle

According to Cinema Blend, the third season of "Supergirl" will see Kara Danvers giving up her human identity. In the trailer released for the third season, Supergirl states that her Danvers identity was a mistake. It is clear that the superhero believes that she should never have tried to blend in with human kind. Speaking on behalf of her character, Melissa Benoist stated that Kara has been trying to balance her two identities as Kara Danvers and Supergirl in the first two seasons of the show.

Her dismissal of her human identity is as a consequence of sending her boyfriend Mon-El away into space. Supergirl is mourning her loss and as a result becomes of the belief that people like her and Mon-El simply do not belong with humankind.

The third season of the series promises to explore this radical change in mindset in more detail.

This is not the first time in a superhero's history that they have shied away from their connections with humanity. Characters such as Batman and Iron Man reinvented themselves as their hero identity in the wake of their own personal tragedies.

While fans were shocked that Supergirl no longer identifies with Kara Danvers, the creators of the show have promised that they will see an evolution with Supergirl.

Fans react negatively at romance dismissal

Fans of the series "Supergirl" have been shipping a romantic relationship between Kara Danaver and character Lena Luthor.

At the panel actor, Jeremy Jordon jokingly dismissed fans desire to see the pair get together. He stated that the pair is simply friends and that there will be no romantic relationship between them. This has upset a number of LGBTQ+ fans as they long to see some representation in their favorite show. Jordon has since taken to Instagram with an apology for the fans of the show. He realizes that he has made a mistake and promises to do better in the future.

"Supergirl" Season 3 will return to the small screen on October 9.
