The first two episodes of “Supergirl” teased a possible love triangle between Winn Schott, Jr. (Jeremy Jordan), Kara Danvers/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks). This was highlighted in episode 2, “Stronger Together,” when Winn sees a possible competition with James now that he knows about Kara’s superhero secret. In a recent interview, Brooks revealed the limits to James’ relationship with Kara. "Supergirl" executive producer Andrew Kreisberg also explained a possible rivalry happening between the two men in the coming episodes.

Brooks and Benoist recently sat down with CBS’ “The Talk” to talk about “Supergirl.” In the video interview shared by Yahoo, Brooks explained why Kara and James will never go beyond the boundaries of friendship. The actor said his character has to abide with a code he has with Superman when it comes to his cousin Kara.

“If your best friend is Superman, there's a bro code you do not cross. I mean, you can't just move from Metropolis to National City and hit on his cousin, 'cause you can get heat vision that way,” Brooks jokingly explained to Yahoo.

In another interview with CBS, (scroll down for video) Brooks revealed Superman entrusted James to help Kara. He said in “Supergirl,” his character was basically just sent by his best friend the “Man of Steel” to help Kara’s foray into the world of superheroes.

Episode 2 of “Supergirl” also teased a developing competition between Winn and James when it comes to helping Kara with her superhero antics. Whether their relationship gets even more strained in the coming episodes is something that executive producer Andrew Kreisberg expounded on during an interview with Variety.

When asked if Winn and James would develop a little competition between them, especially with Winn’s side, Kreisberg said the pair actually has a “hilarious” relationship with one another. However, the more they work together, the more they also get to know each other and develop a friendship.

“Their relationship is actually kind of hilarious, because Winn is so clearly jealous and James is such a nice guy, he doesn’t even notice. It’s this one-sided competitive thing… Poor Winn. Watching the two of them form their friendship is really exciting as well,” Kreisberg told Variety.
