‘Supergirl’: 5 things we’d love to see when Superman returns

It was announced recently that Tyler Hoechlin will be reprising his role as Superman during Supergirl‘s season finale. There are all kinds of things that the Man of Steel could be up to in National City, and here are the 5 things we’d most like to see during his return.

Lois Lane

This is an absolute must. Supergirl is all about girl power and Lois Lane would fit right in. With Cat Grant also set to return in the finale, it would be a perfect time to showcase the rivalry between Cat and Lois that was mentioned in the first season. Not to mention, Clark Kent and Lois Lane are one of the most iconic couples in history. Our favorite journalist really needs to join Clark on his next trip to National City.

More Kryptonian Talk

The great thing about Kara’s relationship with her cousin is that they share the weight of a literal world on their shoulders. They are the only remainder of the planet they once called home. It would be great to see more discussions of Krypton and it’s culture between the two of them, especially because Kara has so much more knowledge about it that she can share with Clark.

More Banter

The best part of Superman’s first visit to National City was the fun banter between him and his cousin. Her quip about having changed his diapers was hilarious, and it’s great when the show comedically references the unique dynamic between them. Not many people can say that they are simultaneously older and younger than a family member, and it’s a funny basis for jokes.

Mon-El and Superman

Who doesn’t want to see these two interact? The possibilities are endless, and maybe Clark will be the character who finally questions why on Earth Mon-el shares his and Kara’s last name. (In the comics, Mon-el was given his name when Clark thought they may be related.)

Lex Luthor

What better way to pull Superman into the Supergirl storyline than to introduce his arch nemesis? With Supergirl already heavily involved with the Luthor family, it’s no stretch to think the infamous bald supervillian may be escaping prison soon. Lex Luthor is one of those villians everyone loves to hate, and it would be interesting to see how he interacts with the other members of his family, especially Lena.


No matter what role Superman plays in Supergirl’s finale, it’s sure to be entertaining. Share your Supergirl predictions, as well as dream casting for Lois and Lex, in the comments below or on twitter!
