Cadmus is arming crooks with alien weaponry leveling the playing field with Supergirl. Caught in the crossfire is James Olsen. No superpowers, no special armor or weapons of his own, he feels powerless but wants to help make a difference. See how Monday's episode of Supergirl, "Crossfire," becomes the catalyst for Olsen to become the Guardian.
The first promo from the CW is presented by executive producer Ali Adler. She explains Olsen's motivation to become more than a sidekick and help as a hero himself. Tired of playing second fiddle to Superman in Metropolis and now Supergirl in National City, Olsen confides in Winn that he's determined to step up and join the fight.
The second promo is the full preview clip from the episode where Supergirl battles a gun-toting thief as she tries to stop a bank heist. She realizes she's up against more than she bargained for.
Supergirl airs on Monday at 8:00 pm on The CW.
