Saturn Girl Suits Up In Supergirl Midseason Premiere Images


Even with an extended hiatus looming, it sure does look like Supergirl will squeeze in a fair amount of memorable moments within the four episodes set to air over the next few weeks. For starters, the Legion of Super-Heroes will be making their presence known in the midseason premiere itself.

So far, the network has been slowly pulling back the curtain on each individual member of one of DC’s oldest and most beloved super teams. Just last week, for instance, we got our first look at Brainiac 5 and, yesterday, we finally saw Mon-El donning some heroic threads.

Normally, the Arrowverse costuming department does a pretty fine job, but the online reaction to how the Legion is thus far appearing has been met with some consternation. While Smallville‘s iteration of the team was a bit more casual in appearance, they were recognizable as those characters. Supergirl‘s take, however, more so resembles the leather-clad X-Men of the silver screen.

And now that a bevy of images from the midseason premiere have been unveiled, we see Amy Jackson suiting up as a Saturn Girl that doesn’t quite align with her comic book counterpart. Sure, she does look pretty badass, but that’s not the color scheme any of us were picturing when she was originally cast.

In addition to seeing her and Mon-El going toe-to-toe with Reign, this year’s ridiculously powerful big bad, Brainiac 5 can be spotted interacting with Kara in the gallery above. And now that we’ve been given more photos of him, it’s hard not to notice how he looks like a hybrid of Doc Brown from Back to the Future and a negative of Marilyn Manson from the Mechanical Animals era. Just saying.
