Supergirl Takes On The Good, The Bad and The Super Human

I just love a good villain. Whether they shoot fireballs from their hands or quietly plot the demise of the planet in the corner, a well written villain strengthens the story line and helps the viewer cheer on the hero. Supergirl fought many battles on the pages of her comic books and we can expect similar clashes in this series between our girl wonder and her enemies. Executive Producer Ali Adler said during the 2015 New York City Comic Con panel interview we’ll see the following adversaries:

  1. Reactron: played by Chris Browning (The Book of Eli, Cowboys & Aliens), is a man capable of producing radioactive energy he forms into concussive blasts.
  2. Livewire: played by Brit Morgan (Graceland, Free Ride) is a woman who transforms and manipulates electricity.
  3. Toyman: played by Jeremy Jordan (Joyful Noise, Smash) is a sociopathic mechanical genius who uses toys to terrorize people.
  4. Maxwell Lord: played by Peter Facinelli (Twilight Saga, Nurse Jackie), is a man who appears  human but is rumored to have the ability to manipulate others telepathically.


There will be a few more notable antagonists this season but Facinelli’s fans know his chisled cheekbones alone should send Kara into hiding. Thankfully the writers gave our Supergirl a formidable set of super skills to overcome such obvious tactics. The short list of Kara’s abilities include flying, freezing breath, super strength, fire and bullet resistance, heat vision and a completely disarming personality. Bad guys beware: Supergirl is here to save the day!
