Some spoilers about the latest episode of The Flash (Duet - season 3 episode 17).

I believe it was during the last song that Barry made a clear reference to Superman. Has Kara ever mentioned her cousin to Barry on either Supergirl or The Flash, or is this just one of those things we are just to assume that they talked about off-camera?

    The Flash and Cisco spent some time in Kara's dimension that last time they crossed over. Given the amount of publicity Superman gets, it's reasonable to assume they got some information about him.

There's a lot that happens off-screen that we don't see. – Tim Mar 22 '17 at 21:11

    @TylerH Same song, just different parts. "Super Friend" was repeated over and over again. – Paul L May 24 '17 at 18:53

On screen, Kara never mentions Superman by name, but in the Legends of Tomorrow episode Invasion (season 2, episode 7), she mentions her "cousin" to the group, and the fact that they're extremely powerful.

It stands to reason that she would have explained further, especially with all the excitement over meeting not just an alien, but one from an alternate universe.

From the transcript

But, back on my Earth, it's just me and my cousin. Between the two of us, we're more powerful than...
