Fifth Dimensional baddie Mxyzptlk joins cast of Supergirl

02.14.2017

So it looks like another classic DC character will be making their debut in the CW DC TV universe (CDTU?), and its none other than that Fifth Dimensional trickster himself, Mxyzptlk. He will be making his first appearance in the CW-verse on SUPERGIRL (which makes sense as he was originally a Superman villain). Anyway, here's a trailer showing him off:

Obviously some adaptation changes have to be made to make certain comic-book characters palpable for live-action. And Mxyzptlk was always going to be a challenge. However, having said that, I'm not sure I like the take they're going with, even if I understand it logistically. He's basically more "Q" from STAR TREK than the classic imp we love-to-hate, but I'll wait to watch it in full before I pass complete judgement. (And, to be fair, Q was a Fifth Dimensional being as well, and probably even influenced by Mxyzptlk).

But what do you Schmoes think? Yay or nay on the new Mxyzptlk? Sound off below!

Either way, the episode, "Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk" will air on the CW February 20th, 2018.

He already appeared in live action back in the old live action superboy tv show, he looked just like he did in the comics and made lana lang his sex slave.

It made me laugh....

I was happy to see him show up. One thing this series has been really good at is incorporating Superman villains and characters and doing it really well (including Olsen, even though I didn't like him for the first handful of episodes). There are a lot of flaws with the series (most notably the absolute obsession with her sister's love life), but overall it's a good distraction on a Monday night. I think Mxyzptlik will be a perfect addition to the tone of this show.

Booo

Gilbert Gottfried or bust. Supergirl (this show, not the character) has sucked since the first episode, its just so boring and she is just really stupid. She has these powers and still just fist fights people. Then you have the downfall of Arrow and Flash. What happened DC? You had such potential at ruling the TV and you blew it. Not even Gotham is that good, its just all villains, no batman and it makes zero sense.
