Everybody’s super-excited about the super-crossover between Supergirl and The Flash, but that’s hardly the first, or even the latest major superhero character to appear on the former’s television program. Indeed, no shortage of Superman and Supergirl bad guys have turned up on Supergirl, and a fairly big one is winding up to be a thorn in the side of the Girl of Steel. The Silver Banshee, as you know, has been a not infrequent threat in the Superman family of comics, and if you’re at all familiar with the character, or even just glanced at the photo above, you will surely be impressed with Italia Ricci‘s transformation.
Entertainment Tonight has the first look at Ricci in full Silver Banshee mode.
But that comes later. When we first meeting Siobhan Smythe on Monday night’s episode “Truth, Justice, and the American Way,” she comes onboard CatCo as the second assistant for Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart). Naturally, Siobhan is going to rub Cat’s first assistant, Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist), the wrong way and create an animosity that will probably be carried on into their costumed lives. In the meantime, Supergirl’s got more pressing enemies coming up on Monday.
SUPERGIRL BATTLES THE DEADLY MASTER JAILER WHO IS HUNTING AND EXECUTING ESCAPED FORT ROZZ PRISONERS, ON “SUPERGIRL,” MONDAY, FEB. 22
“Truth, Justice and the American Way” – Supergirl does battle with the deadly Master Jailer (Jeff Branson), who is hunting and executing escaped Fort Rozz prisoners. Also, Cat hires a second assistant, Siobhan Smythe (Italia Ricci), who immediately tries to one-up Kara, and Kara and James disagree over the DEO’s methods, on SUPERGIRL, Monday, Feb. 22 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
What some pics of Supergirl clashing with Master Jailer? Yup, we’ve got those too!
As for when Supergirl and Silver Banshee might finally clash, stay tuned, that episode of Supergirl will likely come up sometime in April. In the meantime, you can keep up with Kara and the gang Mondays at 8 pm on CBS and follow our recaps here are Nerd Bastards.
