A new promo image for Supergirl season 4 was released via the show’s official Twitter.
The image shows Supergirl standing in a “ready to fight” pose and looking down. What’s curious is the flowing red energy all around her. Even more curious is the tagline that reads “A Force Against Fear.” The red energy around Supergirl evokes a certain image of the New 52 incarnation of the character that had a brief run as a member of The Red Lantern Corp. (A lantern corp who are powered by rage.)

While that by itself seems like a nothing burger when you pair the report that the 5th episode of the upcoming season is entitled “Parallax.” (Which may refer to the legendary Green Lantern villain that uses fear to attack its victims.)
If the CW is using a Lantern villain, could Supergirl turn to another Lantern power to fight it?
Plus, with the destruction of her homeworld, everything to do with Mon-El, growing tension in National City, and a contentious relationship with Lena Luthor, it’s not as if the Girl of Steel doesn’t have a few things to be angry about.
Only time will tell.
