New Look for Chyler Leigh’s “Supergirl” Character – Super Alex Danvers?

Super Alex?

Chyler Leigh has posted a photo of herself on Instagram wearing a blue and black version of the Supergirl costume.

“If Alex could fly too…” Chyler Leigh captioned the image.

With long, black hair and a super-costume, is Alex Danvers about to join her adoptive sister as a superhero? Is this a merged version of Alex and Kara? An alternate reality? What the heck is going on?

What is with the bangs, heavy make up, and lipstick this season?

Anyways, looks like maybe an evil doppelganger that managed to get Kara’s powers in her universe?

Or maybe Mxy does a switcheroo of some kind? Putting Alex in the superhero life and Kara as the DEO agent?

Superwoman perhaps?
Not sure what to think about this yet.
The suit looks similar to Tyler’s black Superman suit in 2018’s crossover except that there’s blue in it.

I like this look

Allegedly, there’s another episode called “It’s a Super Life”, so this could be a Black Label (since Elseworlds has been retired) scenario of “It’s a Wonderful Life” where everything is turned on its ear.

And that happens to be…episode 100 of the entire series.

I wonder if that’s the episode Mxy will be in.

Yeah, he’s supposed to be in 5×13 and recur in a few episodes.

That’s 5×13, the 100th episode. This is for the episode they’re currently filming, 5×15. Helen Slater and Olivia Nikkanen (young Alex) are returning in this episode. No word about Izabela Vidovic (young Kara) though.

Good to hear Helen Slater will be back. It’s been a while since we last saw her. 🙂

She looks very beautiful as usual. I’m referring to the entire Arrowverse franchise when I ask why does literally everyone have to have a super suit or become a superhero? May as well give Lena Luthor one now. Don’t misunderstand me though I am in no way complaining. Since I’m Da-Om-Alor and I consider myself to be a member of the House of Alor then give me a suit. I’m willing to play a part because I could use the money and the excitement.

She looks awesome!

If this is a version of Alex as Supergirl from another universe, it would be cool to see if this version returns from time to time. I like the design so far. I am curious on how it will look in action. I think she has the same hair style as Kara only it’s black.

I wonder if she will team up with Supergirl to fight Mxy as this version.

I’m so totally into the idea of the Alex Supergirl returning from time to time. I would love her to team up with Kara to take on whatever threat there is.

They did establish that there is still a multiverse so anything is still possible. 🙂
