Supergirl Midseason Finale and CW’s DC Crossover: The ‘Invasion’ Commencement, A Closer Look to the Alien Dominators!
And so it started. The prequel to the massive four-part arc, though Supergirl's part only affects the last few minutes, of the hyped CW's DC 'Crossover' has begun.
In the midseason finale of Supergirl, 'Medusa', Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin) will travel to earth Kara Zor-El/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) calls home, Earth-2, so he can bring her to his earth, Earth-1, to help them defeat the alien race known as the Dominators.
Producer Greg Berlanti and his team used the DC Comics idea of the 'multiverse,' so Kara lives on a different Earth. Barry accidentally visited Earth-2 in the season one episode "World's Finest", somewhat an introduction to the 'Crossover' episodes.
Last night's episode of Supergirl pulled in a 1.1 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 3.51 million views, delivering the largest audience yet on CW while trying a demo high, Variety reported.
But who are these superheroes' nemesis who will spread such wide mayhem that the planet needs the defense of Supergirl, Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow?
The Dominators (who were originally introduced as Legion of Superheroes' villains back in the last 60's) are a race of calculating, hyper-intelligent, rigidly hierarchical aliens.
The Dominion was primarily concerned about the unpredictability of metahuman mutations in the human race. The storyline is based on the DC Comics crossover 'Invasion', and executive producer Marc Guggenheim says the idea for this year's event was based on an idea from DC TV producer Berlanti.
In an interview with ENews, Guggenheim shared, "I think the way it came about was we all collectively wanted the superheroes to face an external threat. And by external, I don't mean extraterrestrial-I mean not a Big Bad from one of the shows, rather, a threat that came from outside of the shows."
The four-part miniseries will continue with Tuesday's episode of "The Flash," Wednesday's "Arrow," and Thursday's "Legends of Tomorrow," 8 p.m. ET on CW.
