She’s bold, she’s brave, she’s sophisticated, she’s wise and she has some of the best one lines in the series.

Cat Grant (played by Calista Flockhart) may not be the superhero in National City, but she brings a unique, sassy strength to Supergirl that makes her an instant fan favourite.

With the first season now out on Blu-ray and DVD in Australia, we’ve spent the past few days re-watching the series and falling back in love not only with the Woman of Steel, but her boss and the “most powerful woman in National City” who provides emotional, aspirational and (let’s be honest) financial support to the girl in blue and red.

As Lucy Lane put it, she’s a “cool, powerful, kick ass woman”, and she’s freaking hilarious. These are just a few of the best Cat Grant moments from Supergirl season one.

1. Every time she stepped out of the elevator
