For fans that have been patiently waiting to see Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl team up with one of the other heroes of the DCTV shared universe, the time hasn’t exactly passed in a flash. It’s fitting, then, that when they finally get their wish in “Worlds Finest,” tonight’s special Supergirl crossover episode, the hero that Kara will find herself fighting alongside is…well, the Flash.
Supergirl doesn’t debut until late October, but it sounds like Kara Zor-El will have plenty of super-powered problems to deal with when it does. So far over half a dozen antagonists have been announced, promising that Supergirl’s rise as National City’s new hero isn’t going to be easy. Livewire! Reactron! Hellgrammite!
Wait… You’ve never heard of them?
Okay, fair enough. These guys aren’t Lex Luthor or the Joker. But that doesn’t mean they’re not dangerous. Let’s look at seven of the villains that Kara will square off with this season.
