Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she has been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Based on characters from DC Comics.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's ... a politician saying something he may regret later.

Jeb Bush spoke at a Las Vegas event on Wednesday, where he was asked to name his favorite Marvel superhero, reported CNN.

Bush appeared to have a bit of trouble naming one, saying instead, "I like watching the movies. I wish I owned Marvel, as someone that believes in capitalism."

"I like the old-school guys like Batman, a little dark these days," he continued, showing his apparent affinity for DC Comics.

Then, the presidential candidate — who is married with three children — made it known that he finds Melissa Benoist, star of CBS' new Supergirl, to be easy on the eyes.

"I saw it when I was working out this morning," said Bush about an ad for the show. "She looked kinda ... she looked pretty hot. I don't know which channel it's on, but I'm looking forward to that."

After the audience laughed, Bush — who continues to lag in polls for the GOP race behind Donald Trump and Ben Carson — acknowledged, "That'll make news."
