CBS is promoting Supergirl starring Melissa Benoist really, really hard for its debut in October this year. Here, we can see the latest featurette where fans get to see the real power of Kara-Zor-El in serious test.
In the new Tweet from the actress’s fansite, we got to see Supergirl is lifting an ambulance with one hand effortlessly, no big deal considering she catch and land a stricken plane before.

Notice the word National City on the ambulance, this points to the fact that the writers don’t want to mix her too much with Superman’s own home, Metropolis so they gave her own sandbox. This also ensures that she will be the major focus, not Man of Steel.
Hank Henshaw (David Harewood) revealed that her powers will be thoroughly tested by the Department of Extranormal Operations. There is a major difference of Supergirl and rest of DC heroes on TV series so far: she is actually volunteered to help the government to track down extraterrestrial beings or threats instead of skulking around.
Considering who will be she fighting, she might need every help she can get. Taken from TV-Line:
“Kara Danvers née Zor-El will have her work cut out for her from the get-go, seeing as her adversary in the series pilot will be the DC Comics baddie Lumberjack. To that end, the CBS freshman is seeking a hulk akin to “Rory McCann, the 6-foot-6 actor from Game of Thrones” [to] play this “big, burly monster of a man, who has battled Kara’s cousin” — that’d be you-know-who — “in the past” and shows up to ascertain her level of power, on behalf of an unseen superior.”
Now who is this “unseen superior”? Also, notice the word “who has battled Kara’s cousin”, does it mean that Superman will still show up in this series?
