If you're still reeling from Season 2 of Supergirl, you best get over it, as another superhero team might be headed in for Season 3. Melissa Benoist shares some info regarding a popular easter egg spotted a couple of times in both The Flash and Supergirl and hints that we could be seeing the Legion of Super-Heroes very soon:
The Legion Ring, I believe, is on its way --- but I don't know exactly when.
Just acknowledging to TVLine that there's more to The Legion Ring than a casual wink to DC fans could mean big things for Supergirl in Season 3. For the uninitiated, The Legion Ring is typically held by members of the Legion of Super-Heroes. The Legion Of Super-Heroes are a 31st-century superhero group comprised of super heroes from different planets who fight to protect the galaxy from evil. So, given that Supergirl takes place in the present day, how exactly did this ring end up in the Fortress Of Solitude?
It appears Superman has some explaining to do to Kara in Season 3! More importantly, it opens up the floodgates for a countless group of heroes like Saturn Girl, Lightning Lad, and Cosmic Boy to make appearances in Supergirl. In addition to the laundry list of heroes we could meet, The Legion Of Super-Heroes also represent a team possibly coming to the Supergirl fold that Kara, Superman, and Mon-El have all been a part of at some point in the comics. The present assumption is that Superman has already had an adventure with the Legionnaires, and keeps the ring as a memento of his past journeys.
In the comics, Superman first encountered the team as Superboy when they traveled back in time to meet him. The Legion of Super-Heroes are such big fans of Superman they named a planet after him, which is more love than we've ever shown him. Chances are, if we're seeing The Legion Of Super-Heroes in Season 3, it's because they're in trouble and need the Supergirl squad to come help the 31st century. I'm all about future time travel, and would love to see characters like Kara's one-time love interest Brainiac 5 (who is Brainiac's descendant) appear on screen!
Let's hope whatever the Supergirl writers are planning with the Legion of Super-Heroes that it lives up to the hype of some of their adventures in the comics.
