Mxyzptlk Enters With A Bang In New Supergirl Clip


Another piece of the puzzle is set to fall into place on tonight’s episode of Supergirl when none other than (mostly) everyone’s favorite imp from the Fifth Dimension, Mr. Mxyzptlk, makes his debut on the series. Being one of Superman’s oldest and most infamous villains, it comes as no surprise that he’s being utilized on this show when you take into account that they’ve continuously mined the Girl of Steel’s big cousin’s rogues gallery at every turn possible.

Interestingly enough, this reality altering fellow has had no shortage of live action appearances, having previously been seen on Superboy, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and, of course, Smallville. But what makes this interpretation especially noteworthy is that visual effects on television have caught up to the mischief of which the character is capable, possibly making for one of the more comic book accurate interpretations yet. And from what we can see in the clip at the top, that may very well be true.

For more information, be sure to check out the official synopsis below:

When Mr. Mxyzptlk (guest star Peter Gadiot), a magical imp, shows up on Earth and declares his love for Kara (Melissa Benoist), she tries to let him down easy, thinking him harmless. However, he decides it’s a challenge and starts to wreak havoc on National City. Mon-El (Chris Wood) has seen beings like Mr. Mxyzptlk on Daxam and knows how dangerous they can be. He and Kara argue over how to get rid of Mr. Mxyzptlk, further straining their relationship. Meanwhile, Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Maggie (Floriana Lima) celebrate their first Valentine’s Day together.

Supergirl airs on Monday nights on The CW.
