'Supergirl' Season 5 Episode 19: Alex has a brand new 'super-suit' and fans can't keep calm
Alex's new DEO-designed costume has gotten a lot of approval from fans, who are also amused by the scene in which it was introduced
Spoilers for 'Supergirl' Season 5, Episode 19
Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh) suited up once before this season in the virtual world of Obsidian, but now she's got a suit of her own out in the real world. When she showed it off to Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) for the first time, Kara freaked out, and she's not the only one who did.
Designed by J'onn J'onnz (David Harewood), Kara literally screamed in delight when Alex first put on the suit to show her, much to the amusement of fans. "Kara screaming over alex’s costume is the definite highlight of #Supergirl season 5... no competition," writes a fan on Twitter. "KARAS REACTION TO LENAS SUIT WAS EVERYTHING IM SO HAPPY," writes another. "I haven’t laughed at something in supergirl this season until now," noted one viewer.
Many viewers noted that the costume reminds them of certain other Arrowerse costumes. "Alex's new suit looks like Mia Smoak's Green Arrow suit," writes one fan, while another compares the suit to another emerald archer, "Alex's new suit looks like Mia Smoak's Green Arrow suit." Fans can't quite agree on what character the suit reminds them of, as another writes, "Still can’t get over Alex‘s suit I love it plus it kind a looks like a different version of Thea from arrows suit but I like it better plus it’s a black and blue."
One thing the fans do agree on, however, is how much they're liking the new look. "I'm just saying, it's about time Alex becomes a vigilante and gets her own suit. We stan," declares a fan. "Where has J’onn been hiding all of these cool gadgets? Now, Alex has a super suit that she can materialize at will and a weapon that can turn into any weapon of her choosing," notes a viewer. One fan wonders if Alex will get a new name to go with the costume, writing, "I've been asking what Alex' superhero name is for years and now I will finally find out with this new suit and I do not know what to do with this information."
One has a question about the costume, though. "Don’t get me wrong, I like Alex’s make up and outfit. But without a mask, or hood, isn’t she still obviously Alex? Or is this like everyone not knowing Kara is Supergirl?"
With all the events of the finale, however, fans may have to wait before we get more details about Alex's new vigilante look, but with approval ratings this high, fans can be assured that the costume will be here to stay.
The next season of 'Supergirl' airs in January 2019.
