Top 10 Hunks of "Supergirl"

Supergirl (2015-) is a tv series on Netflix based on the DC comics character: Kara Zor-El, the cousin of Kal-El (Superman), arrives on Earth somewhat later and goes into the superhero business for herself in National City (Los Angeles).

Cousin Kal-El is rarely mentioned by name. Kara (Melissa Benoist) fights villains on her own, notably her Aunt Astra from Krypton, who wants to take over the world.

Meanwhile she butt heads with her two bosses, the media mogul Cat Grant (Calista Flockheart) and Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), head of the alien-hunting DEO.

And negotiates a relationship with her older, non-superpowered sister (Chyler Leigh), who also works for the DEO.

And ruminates endlessly over romantic relationships.

It's very complicated, deliberately silly, and entirely gay-free.  Fortunately, the beefcake is endless.  Here are the top 10 hunks of the first season.

1. Jeremy Jordan as Winn Schott, Kara's quirky bff and computer-hacking Scooby.  Jordan wanted his character to be gay, but the producers nixed that idea, instead giving him an unrequited crush on Kara.

2. Mehcad Brooks as a beefed-up Jimmy Olson, here "James," a Pulitzer-prize winning photographer who has on-off relationships with both Kara and Lucy Lane (Lois's younger sister).

3. Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord, a hunky, fast-talking super-scientist who heads a multi-billion dollar tech firm, has an on-off relationship with Kara's sister, and alternates between villain and ally.

4. Robert Gant as Zor-El, Kara's father back on Krypton, in flashbacks and holo-scenes.  He hasn't taken off his shirt yet, but one can home.

5. Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, aka the Flash, guest-starring from his own series.  His bulge enters a room three seconds before the rest of him.

More after the break.

6. Tyler Hoechlin as Superman.  He appears only in a few episodes of the second season: Kara wants to be a superhero on her own merits, not relying on Cousin Kal-El for help, even when the whole world is being threatened by a baddie.

7. Dean Cain, Superman on the 1990s tv series Lois and Clark, is stunt-cast as Kara's adopted father, Jeremiah Danvers.  He has a history with Kara's current boss, Hank.

8.  Chris Wood as Mon-El, a superpowered alien from the planet Daxam who crash-lands on Earth at the end of the first season.

9.  David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, head of the DEO, who turns out to be the shapeshifting Martian J'on J'onzz (yes, a character by that name appears in DC comics).

10. Chris Vance as Non, husband of Aunt Astra, who assists her in her attempt to take over the world.
