'Supergirl': Kara's new suit looks super cool and will help her continue her fight against injustice
Lena invents a special suit which contains a tiny device, which when placed on Supergirl's chest opens up and surrounds her in a protective armor
Sunday's episode of 'Supergirl' revealed the origin story for the seasons' main villain, Agent Liberty. But, it also unveiled something new to fans and viewers of the DC Comics series - Supergirl's brand new armor and it has its very specific purpose.
At the end of the previous episode, 'Fallout, we witnessed Mercy Graves (Rhona Mitra) use the same device that was previously used to end the Daxamite invasion in season 2, only this time it was irradiated with Kryptonite in the Earth's atmosphere. And as soon as it was irradiated into the atmosphere, Kara (Melissa Benoist) becomes critically ill and since she was mid-flight she ended up plummeting down to the surface of the Earth. Luckily she was saved by Alex and John when they arrived in the right moment and caught her before she crashed.
After taking her back to DEO, they try to revive her using the yellow sun's rays and a protective chest plate. With things looking really bad, towards the end of the episode, Supergirl becomes too weak. When Lena Luthor was called in, it was finally revealed that she had a solution that will not only let Kara fight the poisoning but will also help her survive until they find out a permanent solution.
Lena invents a special suit which contains a tiny device. And when that device is placed on Supergirl's chest it would open up and surround her in a protective armor. This is not the first time that the suit was revealed. Fans previously witnessed it when the trailer was shared at San Diego Comic-Con this year. The armored suit is in the well known blue and red color with a mask and it also has a glowing chest sigil that lights up.
This new costume will not just save Kara from the poison in the air, but will also help her continue her fight toward injustice and hatred that is now spreading across the nation. The new Supergirl suit has design elements that were borrowed from Superman's Eradicator suit. It made its first appearance in 2012's digital-first comic 'Superman Beyond #8' by JT Krul and Howard Porter.
'Supergirl' airs every Sundays at 8/7c on CW. Check your local listings for more information.
