Supergirl in Crisis: The Man of Steel Carries His Cousin on CW Comic Cover

Supergirl has definitely seen better days.

The CW’s newest caped crusader appears (unconscious) with her equally super cousin on a mock comic book cover, released in advance of Monday’s new episode (8/7c).

It’s a recreation of Crisis on Infinite Earths, originally published by DC Comics in the mid 1980s, in which Supergirl *gulp* meets her untimely end:

But don’t start throwing dirt on Kara’s grave just yet; we have it on good authority that the CW drama will not be killing off its titular heroine on Monday. (Can you even imagine?)

What you will see in the coming weeks, however, is Lynda Carter’s debut as the President of the United States, as well as James Olsen’s transformation from a photojournalist to the DC Comics vigilante Guardian.

As you may recall, The CW also recreated the iconic cover of DC Comics’ The Flash of Two Worlds for Supergirl‘s sister series in 2015.

Browse a side-by-side of the two Supergirl comic covers below, then drop a comment with your hopes for the series’ future.

    I loved it when they do stuff like this

  2. Jason says:

    Cool, now all the internet can act like they actually read the issue to claim how geeky they are and be all excited

    Love Supergirl, and equally love Tyler as Superman. His portrayal is what the character SHOULD be, not the dark brooding angst ridden version currently in the movies. PLEASE consider a spin off series with THIS Man of Steel!!!!

    Seeing Supergirl next to Superman, I only have one thought… they need to put the yellow background into her S insignia.

    • Andrew says:

      Yes! I thought the same thing all through last week’s episode!

    • Wordsmith says:

      I disagree – I think the thin yellow border looks much sharper. The Superman shield actually looks a little cosplay-ish by comparison. Maybe it’s just the shade of yellow they used.

    Ummm….what happened to her ear? Is it really Supergirl…or some other alien?

  6. Wordsmith says:

    Now I kinda miss that lunatic who used to post and complain on every single TVLine article about Supergirl, saying they should kill her off.

    Hope the series has many seasons

  8. Robert Dassler says:

    It’s a nice image and well composed. But I would rather the roles were reversed. Supergirl should be the star of her own show.

    What a nice nod to the COIE cover! It’s just awesome when the pages of comic books come to life.

    Stellar nod to the issue of “Crisis on Infinite Earths” that broke my 9 year old heart. I hope this season lives up to the premiere!
