Yeah....normally I can usually explain away most plot holes, but I don't think this one is going anywhere.

It seriously sounds like a random plot the writers would have come up with during a drunken game of Mad Libs or something.

So they're going to feed yet another Superman villain to Supergirl as well? Man, Tyler's version of Superman must have had it easy as a hero since it seems like the only big villains that he's encountered in his career were Lex and Maxima.

Can't they just make some new villains for Supergirl's instead of robbing all of Superman's villains?

General Zod is probably someone he has encountered, hence why he will be in the episode.

Even if he is someone that Superman has "encountered" before, there should still be some villains that should remain off limits from this show unless the plan is to have Superman play a major part in that story line.

I know this is Kara's show but that doesn't justify giving her some of Superman's biggest adversaries all to herself. If Superman was considered dead or missing and he was no longer around to take on the likes of Lex, Zod, or Brainiac, then that would be a different story.

But if that isn't going to be the case, then why rob the Man of Steel of all of his adversaries and feed them over to Supergirl? If the goal of this show is to really expand the popularity of Supergirl's character, then I'd argue that the producers could do so by creating new villains for her that could eventually transition into the main steam comics continuity.

It's bad enough that they've given her own Bizzaro, Parasite, Metallo, and Myx.

OK FOLKS...HOLD IT!

This whole thing with perhaps General Zod showing up (KNEEL!) is getting a bit much...so how about a moment from David Harewood on Instagram, back when Kevin Smith was doing his episodes.

He has been known for giving the gang some gifts (like Silly Putty), well Kevin has upgraded the gifts/incentives...and four words...GET YOUR CAPE ON!

Yes, it's a mini version of the DC Super Hero Girls Supergirl. Note Chyler's reaction...MY GOSH SUCH CUTENESS! SHE IS A FAN OF DCSHG...she should know having two girls. I mean to think Melissa is a kid at heart...CHYLER'S AN EVEN BIGGER ONE!

Take a look from Arrow TV12 on YouTube



Since Chy Chy is such a big DCSHG fan, I was kind of expecting her to sing the theme song "GET YOUR CAPE ON!"

(For the record I have one of those mini figures b/c it's Supergirl and I am also fan of DCSHG because it's a fun concept.)

All of those have been in Supergirl comic books.

Yes, but never as villains that were specifically just her own. This show has taken a lot of Superman's rogues and presented them as just Kara's adversaries. If they were presented as villains that Superman had before as well, that would be a different story.

my guess is zod will be a cameo

since superman appears in the finale maybe kara goes to metropolis to ask for his help and he is fighting zod at that time

I can envision a scene like that with Superman fighting *someone*, but Zod?

I think it's more likely that they are planning to do something significant with a character like him. But one never knows.

Even if it weren't Zod, do we really need another evil Kryptonian to serve as the main villain for possibly next season?

No. I was bored with it in S1, and I'd be bored with it again.

One speculation is that Zod might be a character Mon-El encounters in the Phantom Zone.

The next time they use Superman for 3 episodes in the third season, they need to spread throughout for premiere, midseason, and finale.

If Zod does appear in the finale, I wonder if he will know about Fort Rozz that's in space. I don't see Zod teaming up with Rhea due to the differences between Kryptonians and Daxamites. Zod could be part of the alien invasion.

I hope we see Superman, Supergirl, Martian Manhunter, Mon-El, and Miss Martian team-up to fight the alien invasion in the finale.

Zod's a great villain , so i'm not complaining about him joining the series. They're likely to bring Lex on someday anyway, and they've already used several of Superman's rogues gallery , so I really don't have some issue with Zod on the series.

I wonder if they're actually gonna connect him back to Non and Astra from season one. Non was one of Zod's minions so it would make sense if he was part of the "revolution" that Astra and Non were part of on Krypton. Throw in Faora/Ursa you'd have some good villains for Kara to face off against.
