Wrong Rogues Gallery, but ... riddle me this: when is being the second best at something ... being the best at something?

The answer arrived today on twitter, when the original Miss Tessmacher gave a big ol' gold star to Jon Cryer, and by extension the entire Supergirl creative force:

So, when is being the second best at something ... being the best at something? When Gene Hackman is in the conversation.

And when you get that kind of shine from superhero royalty Valerie Perrine (Superman [1978], Superman II), then you are the best ... that isn't Gene Hackman. AKA the best that anyone that isn't Gene Hackman can be.

Supermensch Jon Cryer received the honor graciously and made sure that the Arrowverse's Tessmacher got her due:

I'll miss so much about the show - the perfection of Melissa Benoist; the cast dynamic; the chandelier in Kara's apartment ... and I'm sure going to miss moments like these on twitter.

The final season of Supergirl launches Tuesday at 8p on CW 14.
