Supergirl Season 1 Episode 11
“Strange Visitor From Another Planet”
Kara must help Hank face his painful past when a White Martian, a member of the alien race that wiped out his people, kidnaps Senator Miranda Crane, an anti-alien politician. Also, Cat’s estranged son, Adam arrives in National City.
Hank is dealing with an alien from his past, a White Martian who is in National City with the goal of killing the last of the Green Martians. After Kidnapping Senator Miranda Crane, the white martian takes the form of Crane in order to draw out Martian Manhunter. When she wasn’t able to draw out Hank, the White Martian decides to kidnap Alex and trade her for the life of Hank.
Also during this episode Cat Grant is dealing with her own past when Kara intervenes in Cats life and send a letter to her estrange son.
So we are introduced to the White Martian, however never referred to as Ms Martian. This was a fun episode, and we are starting to get more from Hank in the form of Martian Manhunter with each passing episode. I was somewhat surprised with the what CBS has been able to do with the CGI and even more surprised with what they did with the White Martian. This episode definitely caused some worry about for the upcoming Batman V Superman movie, mostly due to how close the White Martian resembles Doomsday.
This episode also introduced us to another possible love interest for Kara in the form of Cat Grants son Adam. Now, I am not sure how I feel about this already crowed story to introduce another guy. But if it means less screen time with Jimmy Olsen I am all for it. Once again this episode benefited due to the lack of Jimmy Screen time.
The final scene of episode 11 introduces us to a second Supergirl…is this a Bizarro Supergirl? from the preview of the next episode we know this is the creation of Lord. How will this play out?
I give this episode Two Thumbs Up. Everything we get to learn more about Martian Manhunter is a plus for this show. Let us know your thoughts and leave a comment below.
