LOS ANGELES — Who's that girl? This is the big question casual Superman fans and followers of the new "Superman & Lois" series are asking this morning after Episode No. 3 titled The Perks of Not Being a Wallflower.
If you haven't seen last night's episode of "Superman & Lois," be warned. The third episode of the new CW series reveals an ancient enemy to further complicate the lives of the Kent family in Smallville.
Showrunner Todd Helbing has done his research and dug up an old villain of Supergirl's from the Silver Age comics to challenge the Man of Steel. While her name is Leslie Larr (Stacey Farber) on the television show, the new baddie's Krytponian alias is none other than Lesla-Lar.
On "S&L," Leslie is Morgan Edge's (Adam Rayner) right-hand woman while the comics' Lesla-Lar was a Kryptonian scientist who dwelled in the shrunken, bottled city of Kandor hidden away in Kal-El's Fortress of Solitude.
Lesla-Lar first appeared in Action Comics No. 279, and her jealousy of Kara Zor-El led Lar to switch places with Supergirl. Kara was imprisoned in Kandor while Lesla-Lar became Earth's Girl of Steel. The women eventually swapped back, but Lar continued to be a thorn in the side of both Kara and Clark Kent.
Following the events of "Crisis on Infinite Earths" (1985-1986), the Silver-Age and Bronze-Age versions of Lesla-Lar disappeared from the comics. The evil Kryptonian last appeared in Superman Family No. 206 (1981) 40 years ago.
With the revelation of Leslie Larr aka Lesla-Lar, and she did show off her heat vision last night, Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) now has three DC baddies (Morgan Edge and Lex Luthor) to contend with every Tuesday night.
