Livewire And Metallo Will Return To Second Season Of Supergirl

Supergirl villains Livewire and Metallo are set to feature again at some point in The CW superhero series.

Livewire, who is played by Brit Morgan, previously appeared in two episodes of the show’s first season, one of which saw Kara join forces with The Flash to defeat her and her ally Silver Banshee.

Metallo, meanwhile, debuted in the first two episodes of Supergirl‘s second season (“The Adventures of Supergirl” and “The Last Children of Krypton”). First appearing in 1959’s Action Comics #252, Metallo has gone toe-to-toe with the Man of Steel on multiple occasions. Different versions of the character have different abilities, but recently the character has been able to absorb any metal and make it part of his exo-skeleton to make himself a gigantic swiss army knife of pain.

Episode 2.09 of Supergirl is titled “Supergirl Lives,” a nod to director Kevin Smith‘s failed Superman film from the 1990s. Smith himself directs the episode, which is set to air Monday, January 23 on The CW.

Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist alongside Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, Chyler Leigh as Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow “Winn” Schott, Jenna Dewan Tatum as Lucy Lane (sister of Lois), David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord, with Dean Cain and Helen Slater.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
