The CW has become the de facto home for DC Comics superheroes on television in recent years, and after the past two weeks, it’s obvious the Man of Steel deserves his own spot on the schedule. Full-time.
Metallo is wreaking havoc on Metropolis and National City, so Supergirl and Superman team up to take him down. Kara gets injured; Superman is upset the DEO keeps Kryptonite around; and Cat Grant leaves town.
Moving Supergirl from CBS to The CW was an interesting experiment, but the big question was how the series would be received at its new home. Turns out a good bit of those CBS fans followed Kara to The Flash’s stomping grounds.
With the series setting up shop at The CW this fall, the second season premiere of Supergirl almost had to serve as a re-piloting of sorts for fans who maybe didn’t check it out last year at CBS. For the most part, it worked.
