Supergirl is gaining one of the biggest bads of the DC Universe. In a brand new image, thanks to Deadline, we got our first look at Lex Luthor played by Jon Cryer. One of Superman’s greatest villains will be going toe to toe with the Girl of Steel in the upcoming season.

In the image we see Lex is behind bars in maximum security. He’s rocking the bald head of course, since that’s a staple for the character. It wouldn’t be Lex Luthor without being bald! The villain will make his debut in the episode “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”, hinting that a jailbreak is definitely going to happen. In addition to the image, the CW also revealed the episode synopsis. “Lex Luthor reaches out from prison to enlist Lena into one of his plans and will stop at nothing to get her on board, even if that means leveraging the life of one of her friends.”

So it looks like Lena Luthor will be going through the ringer having to deal with her older brother. While we don’t know which friend it is, we’re going to guess that it’s Supergirl. How will Kara Danvers be able to face and overcome Lex? That remains to be seen. But we’re excited to see Jon Cryer in action as Lex. The character is just so iconic and too much fun (if done well), and Cryer has the acting chops to nail it. And we won’t have to wait long to see him!

Check out the image below and let us know what you think! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more CW news. Supergirl will meet Lex Luthor on March 17th, 2019.
