Photos from the upcoming Supergirl episode “For The Girl Who Has Everything” have been released, and it appears as though this adaptation of a classic Superman story will have very close shades to the original.
The episode is an adaption of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ classic Superman story “For the Man Who Has Everything,” which originally appeared as 1985’s Superman Annual #11. In the comic, Superman fell victim to an alien plant known as the Black Mercy, a parasite that attaches itself to Superman’s chest and forces him into a catatonic state where he dreams of his perfect life that could have been, had Krypton never exploded. Eventually, the dream turns bad, and Superman overcomes the Black Mercy’s powers.
In the episode, Supergirl takes the place of her cousin, dreaming of her lost life on Krypton after falling victim to what looks like the show’s version of a Black Mercy.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8:00pm EST on CBS. “For The Girl Who Has Everything” arrives Feb. 8.
