Supergirl is in for a wild first season! Mentalist alum, Owain Yeoman, has been cast as the series’ first villain, Vartox.
In DC Comics, Vartox came from the planet Valeron, with powers that matched that of Supergirl‘s cousin, Superman. As TVLine reported, Vartox, in his most recent comic book appearance, “attempted to woo Power Girl, in the name of (bow-chicka-wow-wow) repopulating his infertile planet with the most supreme female specimen he could find.”
On the show, it’s being reported that “Vartox is an alien convict who has been hiding on Earth for 12 years. After Supergirl’s emergence as a public hero, he seeks her out to ascertain her identity and do battle with her.”
Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as the high-flying, Kryptonian superhero, Mehcad Brooks, Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, and Jeremy Jordan.
