5 Questions About Superman Coming To ‘Supergirl’

1: Is Superman’s Appearance Related To The Pod?

At the end of the season one finale of Supergirl, a mysterious character arrived in National City in a Kryptonian looking pod. The last shot we get is Kara opening the pod and being stunned by what/who she sees inside of it. We have yet to learn the identity of who the character is other than this statement that show-runner and executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said to EW in April:

EW: Is this a character we may have seen in the comics before?

Kreisberg: Again, I don’t want to give too much away, but it’ll be cool. The fans are going to be excited. It’s going to definitely shake things up for season 2.”

Even though we have no idea what is in store in the season two premiere and what brings Superman to National City, it would make quite a lot of sense that Kara reaches out to him in regards to the arrival of the mystery character. Season 1 of Supergirl did introduce the concept of Project Cadmus which in the comics is most known for creating Conner Kent a.k.a. Superboy. What if the mystery character is in fact Superboy and the reason Superman is there in the first two episodes is to figure out where this young clone of himself arrived from and why. No matter who it is, I bet right now that Clark’s presence will have something to do with the pod.
