'Supergirl' season 5 could see Kara Zor-El face tougher villains as training before taking on Anti-Monitor in 'Crisis on Infinite Earths'
Played by Melissa Benoist, the character has spanned four seasons of taking on baddies and with the "Crisis" looming large, the Anti-Monitor will be wary of Kara's abilities as she's possibly the one to come closest to defeating the cosmic entity
When the DC universe conjured up the concept of 'Crisis on Infinite Earths,' a 12-issue mini-series that focused on the greatest battle in cosmic history, a lot of good superheroes died. Now, that theory is close to coming true as The CW shows 'The Flash', 'Arrow', 'Supergirl' and 'Batwoman' will be focussing an episode each on the greatest battle these four heroes will be part off.
The most-anticipated death is of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) aka Arrow. The second casualty of war in all probability is Barry Allen aka The Flash (Grant Gustin).
In the TV series, the four superheroes with help from new friends and foes will take on the Anti-monitor (La Monica Garrett). Of the four, Supergirl's death is still questionable. Played by Melissa Benoist, the character has spanned four seasons taking over baddies and with the "Crisis" looming large, the Anti-Monitor will be wary of Kara's abilities as she's possibly the one to come close to defeating the cosmic entity.
If we look at the comics, Supergirl was one of the heroes to die in the battle. But if The CW were to look at a similar plotline, that would essentially mean the end of the series. Her death in the comics led to an iconic panel of Superman holding his cousin in his arms.
While that image has already been referenced in 'Supergirl', it's possible it was just teasing what her fate would be in the crossover event. Season 5 of 'Supergirl' would probably see Kara gear up for the most important fight of her life.
In a battle where many of earth's heroes die, she will need all her abilities and skills against the monstrosity that would potentially wipe out the earth these heroes reside in. Of the four heroes, Only Kara and Barry have superhuman abilities and the former is the most powerful.
The upcoming season may see Kara step up her training a notch higher. This could also mean introducing tougher villains in the show who could give her a stern test.
'Supergirl' is one of those shows that looks like it's not going away anytime soon, and killing the character would not be the ideal move. It's probably for this reason that the upcoming installment would see Kara try and unlock her maximum potential to survive the mega event.
'Supergirl' season 5 will premiere October 6 at 9 p.m. on The CW. The show will share its Sundays with 'Batwoman' which also premieres that day at 8 p.m.
