Supergirl Gets a New Villian

The CW has released a first look at the main villain for season 3 of Supergirl, and it’s caught many fans off guard. You see, in an earlier teaser for season 3, there was a grey, crackling alien character whom many fans assumed was Reign because it was pretty close to how the character appears in the comics. However, the version of Reign that we are actually getting is played by Odette Annable and is seen wearing a mask and a black leather/spandex costume. Granted, the costume does invoke thoughts of what Reign wears in the comics, but the character is very human looking.

For those unfamiliar with Reign (introduced in 2012), she is a Worldkiller, a biological weapon created on Krypton by Zor-El (who later came to regret his part in the creation of the blood-thirsty, super-powerful monsters). Reign and her partners survived the destruction of Krypton, but her origin remained a mystery — even to her. She goes on to become an enemy of Supergirl when the villain arrives on Earth, with plans to conquer it.

What are your thoughts on the look? Do you approve, or would you rather see something more true to the comics?
