While this week's episode of Supergirl saw the White Martians go after Miss Martian (Sharon Leal) and the rest of the DEO gang, next week's new installment will center on the Luthors.

The CW has released an extended trailer that also showcases the return of that Kryptonite-wearing villain Metallo (Frederick Schmidt) and Lillian Luthor (Brenda Strong). And back after sitting out a couple of episodes is Lex's adopted sister, Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath).

Talking about Lex, the cool new promo for "Luthors" (yup, that's the title of the episode) also features an awesome sneak peek at Lex Luthor’s iconic warsuit. In the pages of DC Comics, there were various versions of the LexCorp Battlesuit (including an alien one) used by Lex in the villain’s ongoing battle against Superman.

Could the Man of Steel’s mortal enemy pop up in National City? While we don't know if Lex will put in an appearance on Supergirl yet, the fact that they're showing us that warsuit seems like another step in that direction. After all, we've had Supes (played by Teen Wolf's Tyler Hoechlin) fly in from Metropolis in the second season two-parter premiere, so having Lex follow (heh) suit (even though he's currently rotting away in a small cell) is certainly not impossible.

After Metallo (guest star Frederick Schmidt) breaks out of prison and frees Lillian Luthor (guest star Brenda Strong), the police blame Lena (guest star Katie McGrath) for his escape and arrest her. Despite overwhelming evidence, Kara (Melissa Benoist) refuses to believe her friend is guilty and fights to clear Lena's name. Flashbacks reveal how Lena came to be a Luthor. Meanwhile, Alex (Chyler Leigh) introduces Maggie (Floriana Lima) to the gang.
