Yup, it’s drunk evil Superman from Superman III

Of all the versions of Superman storylines that Supergirl has given us, this might be my favorite. Too bad it didn’t end with Kara Danvers fighting Mean Supergirl in a junkyard. But we can’t have everything.

I knew Richard Pryor was to blame for Kara’s woe! With his super computer knowledge he got from taking one class.

Red Kryptonite Kara was fun little evil power trip but I hope they don’t go too far down the Kryptonite hole. Or if they do they give us the evil Pink Kryptonite that will lead to Kara kissing Lucy. But wait! It was just a pink normal rock all along!
