With last night's episode, "Supergirl" soared into the CW's skies as the latest DC Comics hero to populate the network's lineup. The season two premiere episode, "The Adventures of Supergirl," saw a number of fresh starts in National City. Winn Schott (Jeremy Jordan) is now working for the DEO, Kara (Melissa Benoist) has a new career and a stalled romance with Jimmy Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) and even Cat Grant's (Calista Flockhart) looking to make a change. Most notably, though, Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) has decided to stick around National City for a little while -- and that's a decision that could cost him his life.
The premiere episode saw Supergirl and Superman team-up to stop an assassin named James Corben (Frederick Schmidt) from taking out Lex Luthor's sister Lena. But Corben's story didn't end with his failure to kill Lena; no, the episode ended with the near-death Corben taken in by Project Cadmus -- and given new life. The trailer for next week's "Supergirl," an ep titled "The Last Children of Krypton," shows the Kryptonite-powered cyborg Corben going up against the show's heroes.
IAN GOMEZ STARS AS SNAPPER CARR — CADMUS attacks National City with a kryptonite powered villain who ends up seriously hurting Supergirl (Melissa Benoist). Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) blames Hank (David Harewood) because the kryptonite was stolen from the DEO. Meanwhile, Kara’s first day at her new job doesn’t go as planned after she meets her new boss, Snapper Carr (guest star Ian Gomez).
Starring Melissa Benoist as the Girl of Steel, "Supergirl" airs Mondays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW. The series also stars David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers and Jeremy Jordan as Winn Schott and features appearances by Calista Flockhart's Cat Grant as well as Tyler Hoechlin's Superman.
