Helen Slater's costume looked completely dignified and not demeaning whatsoever. I definitely don't want Supergirl to be wearing pants.
This. My favourite version of the costume bar none:
It just wouldn't be Supergirl without the skirt.
I really hope they actually do a proper origin story where she meets Superman like in the comics if they ever put her in the new films.
