Reign’s Enlightenment Begins In Extended Supergirl Teaser

by Erik Amaya

The CW has released a new extended teaser for next week’s mid-season debut of Supergirl. In it, Reign (Odette Annable) returns to the Fortress of Sanctuary to be lauded for her success over Kara (Melissa Benoist). But the World Killer’s mission is not over as she must still bring “The Enlightenment” to planet Earth. Is it the simple destruction of the world or something else? Meanwhile, the extended trailer also offers the first glimpse of Brainiac 5 (Jesse Rath) in action. It sounds like his cold sarcasm survived the change in skin tone from green to blue, but it remains to be seen if he can really help Kara out of her coma.

But at least a few more Legionnaires are available to help stop Reign.

And since I never griped about Imra’s (Amy Jackson) costume the other day, at least it seems to originate from Saturn Girl’s classic design. The lavender in the sleeves sort of suggest the reddish hues of her costumes over the decades and the logo on her belt resembles her icon of old. But as I said the other day with Mon-El’s (Chris Wood) costume, it’s possible these dark variants are only the “version one” designs for the suits as they progress closer to becoming the classic Legion.

Oh, and if you’re wondering: Brainy’s classic costume is just a purple jumpsuit, so it can be tinkered with the most.

Supergirl returns January 15th on The CW.
