So it looks like fan favorite Lobo might be joining the Arrow multiverse. During the recent Crisis on Earth X crossover event, in a scene introducing Supergirl to the story, she is destroying a parked car in a fistfight with an unidentified alien. During the fight her support team at the D.E.O. requests details. Winn inquires if the alien is a Helgrammite . But then Alex gives a worried look as she suggests it could be Czarnian.

If you are a fan of the character then you know the only Czarnian still alive is Lobo. Of course, this could be nothing more than a fun Easter egg for astute fans, but it could mean more. It’s not the first time the show has hinted at Lobo. Back in the episode “Truth, Justice and the American Way” in the first season, a mysterious armored figure was hunting down prisoners who had escaped Fort Rozz . He turned out to be a guard from the prison impersonating a detective, but the emergence of an “intergalactic bounty hunter” could have been a likely answer. Also Alex Danvers who wondered if that mystery man could be “him”.

Lobo sure would shake things up in Kara Danver’s world, but the question is, would Lobo be too intense for the CW? He’s one of the more “adults only” DC characters, and fans won’t take kindly to a bad live action version. We probably won’t know if Lobo will appear on Supergirl for a while, but you can still catch her adventures on Monday’s on the CW.
