Supergirl returned to the airwaves for Season three with the promise of a supervillain in contrast to any launched by the collection earlier than. The brand new baddie Reign made her debut as a child in the Season 2 finale, and he or she has already appeared in Season three. We have not seen her undergo her villainous transformation on the present but, nevertheless, and we have needed to marvel what she’d appear like when she lastly stepped as much as battle the Lady of Metal. Now, the present has lastly launched a primary take a look at Reign the villain, and he or she’s fairly epic. Test her out!
It appears that evidently Supergirl‘s model of Reign will principally be a darkish model of Supergirl who went with pants slightly than a skirt. After all, she’s additionally carrying a masks, so she’s most likely not as optimistic as Kara and Clark in terms of not being acknowledged by bystanders. Reign virtually appears extra like a villain out of the upcoming Earth-X crossover than anyone who will menace Kara within the Earth-38 model of Nationwide Metropolis. On condition that Reign and Kara each come from Krypton — though they might be genetically totally different, relying on how Supergirl handles Reign’s backstory — it is sensible that Supergirl would give them comparable outfits. I might say Reign in full villain mode appears fairly badass.
This Reign actually appears totally different from the DC Comics model of Reign. The comics model appears distinctly alien with blue pores and skin and darkish eyes, and her outfit is an entire lot skimpier than we see within the first take a look at Odette Annable as the character. The bodysuit appears fairly sensible for bodily preventing, and we are able to guess that she’ll pose a formidable risk to Kara once they inevitably conflict.
There is not any saying at this level simply when Reign and Supergirl will conflict, as Reign nonetheless does not appear solely conscious of her origin on Krypton. As an alternative, she’s dwelling as single mother Samantha, who’s working as Chief Monetary Officer of L-Corp now that Lena has shifted over to working at CatCo. The primary take a look at Reign posted on Twitter solely signifies that she’ll debut later this season. For all we all know, Reign will not even present up in 2017!
Nonetheless, Supergirl appears to have loads of materials for Samantha earlier than she makes her transformation to Reign, and it ought to be enjoyable to see how the present handles her story transferring ahead. By telling Reign’s origin story in actual time, Supergirl is doing something new that would actually set Season three aside.
