Part of what makes Supergirl such an enthralling series is its characters. Each one, whether hero or villain, is multi-dimensional, complex, and totally unique. Seeing these characters interact with each other is one of the main attractions to this series and sometimes, the dramatic fireworks are more interesting than the fight scenes and the incredible powers used by these superheroes.
It’s satisfying to analyze these characters in the context of the zodiac. By aligning certain characters to certain star signs, we can develop a better sense of who they really are. This line of reasoning also allows fans to compare themselves and friends to various characters in a realistic manner. Ever wondered which Supergirl character you have the most in common with? Find out which character you are, based on your Zodiac sign:
12 ARIES: Eve Teschmacher
As a fire sign, Aries is quick-tempered and prone to impulsive actions. These individuals are also prone to outbursts of anger, and there can be a lot of fireworks when they don’t get their way.
Eve Teschmacher fits with this description pretty well, as she once knocked out Lena. Even though she might have a cool exterior, this spy shows her fiery side on more than one occasion.
11 TAURUS: James Olsen
Taurus individuals are famous for not letting anything get in their way. Once they’ve decided to take a certain path, there’s no stopping them. James Olsen’s one-mindedness as a journalist fits this description pretty well.
He’s completely committed to being a responsible journalist with integrity and he always tries to do the right thing. No matter what, he’ll always do his best to find out the truth.
10 GEMINI: Nia Nal
As an air sign, Gemini individuals are often a little dreamy – “off in their own world” while the rest of the signs can be a little more grounded. Nia Nal is definitely a dreamy person, and it might be this personality trait that contributes to her powers.
Nia Nal can also be a little unpredictable, and there’s an air of anxiousness around her most of the time. All in all, she makes a pretty perfect Gemini.
9 CANCER: Martian Manhunter
Cancer individuals often keep to themselves, and there’s an air of mystery around them. They don’t really like to reveal their emotions, and Martian Manhunter is cold and calculating enough to fit the bill.
Martian Manhunter is also very elusive. His powers allow him to shapeshift, which leaves a lot of people guessing about his true nature and form. This is basically what a typical Cancer individual is like.
8 LEO: Supergirl
Even people who don’t know much about the star signs know that Leos are natural-born leaders. These individuals often find themselves at home in positions of authority.
People naturally seem to trust them, and they use their intelligence and resourcefulness to accomplish all kinds of good deeds. Supergirl represents all of these traits, making her an obvious Leo.
7 VIRGO: Alex Danvers
One thing’s for sure: you can rely on Virgos to get the job done. They’re very observant and notice things that others might overlook.
As the head of the Department of Extranormal Operations, Alex Danvers probably reached this position because of her observant nature. She is also someone who uses everything in her ability to help when necessary, and she makes difficult decisions with ease.
6 LIBRA: Lena Luthor
Another person who tries very hard to do the right thing is Lena Luthor. Sometimes, it seems like she’s trying even harder to be altruistic because of the evil nature of her family.
That being said, a lot of it has to with her personality, as she is naturally just and diplomatic. Lena is also very loyal, and she sticks by her friends until the bitter end. All of these traits make her an obvious Libra.
5 SCORPIO: Brainiac
Scorpios are known for being some of the most intelligent people in the world, so Brainiac is an obvious fit here. That’s not all – Scorpios are also known for being rather reclusive and secretive.
Brainiac has only a few close friends, and people are often trying to figure out what he’s really thinking. He is also very loyal to his close friends.
4 SAGITTARIUS: Agent Liberty
Sagittarius individuals are known for being very driven. The symbolism of an archer sums up their personality perfectly: Once they have their target in their sights, nothing’s going to stop them from hitting their mark.
Agent Liberty fits in with the Sagittarius mold very well, mostly because of his all-important goal to establish an alien-free planet.
3 CAPRICORN: Lex Luthor
Supergirl’s version of the classic Superman villain Lex Luthor is a good representation of a Capricorn because of the way he excels in the business world. Capricorn individuals typically make excellent entrepreneurs because of their planning skills. They also know when it’s the right time to make a move.
Of course, Lex Luthor uses his planning skills to concoct evil schemes, but he has also become quite successful in the business world.
2 AQUARIUS: Toyman
Aquarius individuals are known for being some of the most intelligent of all the star signs. Toyman obviously fits into this category because of his natural ability to innovate and create all kinds of different inventions with ease.
The reason Aquarius individuals are so intelligent is because of their natural intuition and analytical abilities. Toyman shows these characteristics on more than one occasion.
1 PISCES: Mon-El
Pisces individuals are known for being sensitive, creative, and kind. That being said, they can also be quite closed off and mysterious. Pisces individuals are also known for being romantics – usually of the hopeless variety.
These are all characteristics exhibited by Mon-El. He is something of an outcast, but he’s been involved in quite a few romantic trysts over the course of the series. Anyone who knows him (or a Pisces person, in general) also gets the sense that he’s a compassionate person deep down.
The Zodiac signs are a great way to determine one's character and personality, so why not use it with Supergirl's cast?
