Superheroes have to deal with quite a bit of hassle in their day to day lives. From evil megalomaniacs, to rogue cyborgs, to potentially apocalyptic alien threats, a Kryptonian's work is never done. However, that doesn't mean they turn a blind eye to simple street crime. A new clip from the upcoming episode of Supergirl has just hit the web, and it serves as a firm reminder of why you should never rob a bank in National City. Check out the scene below.
A new clip from the second season of Supergirl has just been released by The CW, and it shows the solar powered Kryptonians in all of their crime fighting glory. The scene picks up in the middle of a bank robbery, only for the sounds of the alarms to compel our two heroes to save the day. Kara arrives on the scene first, and steps in front of the car to stop it -- followed swiftly by Superman, who prevents the car from backing up. Realizing their failed escape, the two bank robbers get out of the car and (rather stupidly) attempt to fight off the blue-clad superheroes with guns and fists. Spoiler alert: it doesn't go so well. After some playful banter, and a few delightful quips, Henshaw calls to the Super cousins and sends them on a new mission to take care of a bigger threat.
The beauty of this scene is the way in which it captures the hopeful, whimsical tone of these heroes. They enjoy saving people, and they enjoy doing it together. While the DCEU's version of Superman has thus far proven himself to be a bit of a downer, Tyler Hoechlin has gone in the opposite direction by giving us a version of the Man of Steel that is an unquestionable symbol of all that is good. Although everyone seemed worried that he wouldn't be able to live up to the standard of the Last Son of Krypton, Hoechlin has definitely proven himself worthy of the role. He's more Christopher Reeve than Henry Cavill, which ultimately helps set him apart from the current silver screen version of the iconic DC superhero. Variety matters, after all.
