Lex Saved the World in Supergirl Episode 5.17 Promo

The CW has debuted a new promo for the next episode of Supergirl. The show took a long break due to the coronavirus health emergency but before the end of the month, the fans will get the chance to see the new adventures of Kara and co. In the meanwhile, the television network is re-airing the crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths starting April 6.

The freshly released images suggest that the upcoming episode will take on how Lex Luthor came into power after the events of the Crisis. The genius millionaire will try once again to stop the Kryptonians, perhaps with the help of the titular heroine. And it also seems that the duo will manage to reach their goal, given that Lex is bragging off about saving the world.
