A couple of episodes ago on Supergirl it was revealed that Hank Henshaw was in fact J’onn J’onzz, the Martian Manhunter. I wondered how long it would be until we saw other Martians, namely White Martians. Tonight’s episode, Strange Visitor from Another Planet, answers that question with these three clips. The white Martians destroyed J’onn’s race in the comics, and I’d assume the same is true in the TV series. Plus, racist senators and Cat Grant’s son make an appearance.
Here’s the episode’s official synopsis:
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 (Tawny Cypress), an anti-alien politician. Also, Cat’s estranged son, Adam (Blake Jenner), arrives in National City.
Supergirl airs tonight on CBS.
