Supergirl's CBS costume in "DC Universe Online." DC Universe Online website

“Supergirl” premieres on CBS next week and fans can celebrate the occasion by seeing the character in her TV costume in “DC Universe Online.” Daybreak Games, the developer of the massive multiplayer online (MMO) game confirmed that players would be able to see and play as Kara Zor-El in this costume.

According to the official DC Universe Online website, this version of Supergirl will only be available for a limited time, so players who want to see Kara in this costume should play the game right away. The developer hasn’t stated when the costume’s date will expire but its not going to be around as long as most would like.

Online players in either the Heroes or Villains side can get a glimpse of her costume by going to Metropolis and seeing her in action. Heroes will be able to take a closer look at her by going to the Justice League’s Watchtower and chatting with Kara on the Meta Wing.

Those who are fans of this look can purchase the costume in “Legends,” if they’re members of the “DC Universe Online” community. IGN reported that the new look costs 100 marks of legend and will be a permanent fixture for those who buy it, while it will be temporary for everyone else.

This isn’t the first time video games have been able to use television or movie costumes. The “Man of Steel” versions of Superman and General Zod are available as alternate costumes in the game, along with the CW version of Green Arrow.

Oddly enough, while the character will be prominent in television soon, Supergirl currently doesn’t have her own comic book. While the Supergirl comic was part of the initial line up of DC’s “New 52” reboot, the character’s comic has since been cancelled. Maybe the show’s prominence will lead to a new series or a tie-in comic to the show’s universe similar to “The Flash” and “Arrow.”

“DC Universe Online” is available now for the PS3, PS4 and PC. The game originally had to be paid for but is now free for anyone to download, with special paid memberships for those who want access to exclusive events in the game.
