Supergirl's first season of the CW has introduced a lot of new characters, with #Superman, Lena Luthor, Miss Martian and Metallo all joining the fray. They are now set to introduce another character during the second half of its second season in the form of Mr. Mxyzptlk.
While there is no casting announcement on the fifth dimensional Imp, Comicbook.com broke news that the character will appear for two episodes throughout the second half of Season 2.
SThis won't be the character's first outing on #TV. He was most notably portrayed by the one and only Gilbert Gottfried in Superman: The Animated Series and appeared in Lois & Clark: The Adventures of Superman where Howie Mandel portrayed him. He was also showcased in an earlier episode of Smallville in the form of a student named Mikhail Mxyzptlk.S
While there is no news on how and when he will appear in #Supergirl, one can take an educated guess that it will be around the time of the musical crossover with The Flash. Mr Mxyzptlk is known for creating both mischief and mayhem and having fun during his battles with Superman, so making every character of the episode sing while trying to take him down would be both fitting and hilarious.
Supergirl is currently on a winter break but will return January 16, 2017 at 8/7c on The CW.
