Superman is finally going to appear on CBS's new DC series, Supergirl - not in the way most viewers would think. Since premiering on CBS, Supergirl (played by Melissa Benoist) briefly mentions her cousin, Kal-El, throughout the series. If you've been living under a rock, Kal-El is the real name of the red-caped DC superhero, Superman. Rest assured DC fans: Kal-El is ready to make his debut alongside Supergirl - as her younger cousin.
According to collider.com, Supergirl's upcoming episode, "For the Girl Who Has Everything", Kara becomes trapped in a dream because of a plant called Black Mercy. In the dream, Kara never escaped to earth; she is still with her parents on Krypton, where a young Kal-El/Superman is by her side (and in a cute little sweater, donning his famous symbol). See the official synopsis and pics below before the episode airs.
In this episode, when a parasitic alien attaches itself to Kara and traps her in a dream world where her family is alive and her home planet was never destroyed, Kara’s beloved cousin Kal-El joins her and her parents in domestic Kryptonian bliss, where neither of them needed to escape to Earth, or become super heroes, on SUPERGIRL, Monday, Feb. 8 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET) on the CBS Television Network.
On a sidenote: wouldn't it be absolutely amazing if Tom Welling reprises his role as The CW's Smallville hero? Afterall, Welling is possibly returning to television with a starring role on CBS's Section 13. The drama series, currently in development, comes from producer Warner Bros. TV, as well as studio-based Tom Welling Productions. If Welling happens to land on the same network as Supergirl, why not just don the red cape one more time (or a couple of times for that matter) and fight alongside Benoist? That would be a fantasy crossover to happen besides the upcoming Flash/Supergirl episode.
Supergirl airs Mondays on CBS at 8/7c.
