Supergirl will introduce Bizarro in its twelfth episode a couple of weeks from now, and while there’s no sign of the character in these first official images, we do see that a new romantic interest is on the cards for Kara Danvers.
Here’s the synopsis for the episode – which is rather appropriately titled “Bizarro” – courtesy of CBS:
Kara faces off against her mirror image when Bizarro (Hope Lauren), a twisted version of Supergirl, sets out to destroy her. Also, Kara grows closer with Cat’s son, Adam (Blake Jenner), on SUPERGIRL, Monday, Feb. 1 (8:00-9:00 PM) on the CBS Television Network.
Hope Lauren played the girl in the coma who Maxwell Lord was watching over in the midseason premiere of Supergirl, and this week’s instalment made it clear that Lord has a plan to transform her into a Bizarro version of Supergirl. Whether she’ll be a one off villain or a recurring threat in the series moving forward remains to be seen, but this is a very interesting direction to take the character in.
It’s also somewhat surprising that they’re not going down the clone route that the comic books and Smallville did, as that would have meant Melissa Benoist could have played both roles. Regardless, this is definitely an interesting development for Supergirl, and it should be fun to see these two characters clash on the small screen in a few weeks from now.
