Supergirl has forged Jessica Meraz because the DC Comics antihero Pamela Ferrer aka. Menagerie, a personality usually related to the antihero Manchester Black. The latter made his debut on The CW TV collection within the ongoing season 4, the place he is portrayed by actor David Ajala.

Previous to subsequent week’s Arrowverse Elseworlds crossover occasion, Supergirl aired its 2018 midseason finale and set the stage for what’s to come back when the present correct continues in January. The midseason finale – titled “Bunker Hill” – concluded with each Manchester Black and Ben Lockwood (Sam Witwer) aka. Agent Liberty being arrested for his or her respective crimes and brought into custody at Nationwide Metropolis Jail. On the identical time, Supergirl was compelled to give up the DEO after she refused to disclose her secret identification – regardless of being commanded to take action by U.S. President Baker (Bruce Boxleitner) – within the wake of Lockwood’s seize.

Living proof: Deadline stories that Meraz will be part of Supergirl‘s forged in 2019 as Menagerie, a personality who’s a part of Manchester Black’s “Elite” within the DC Comics universe. The “Elite” themselves are a bunch of highly effective metahumans who function past the bounds of the legislation, with Black main the way in which. Menagerie, for her half, was sure to symbiotic parasitic alien lifeforms often called “symbeasts” via an experimental process carried out by a rogue part of the DEO often called the Males in Black (no, not these Males in Black). The character is thus in a position to create a wide range of weapons utilizing the “symbeasts” and use them to assault her opponents, as she deems match.

Whereas Menagerie’s storyline will little question be modified for the present, one can already begin to see how the villain/antihero could be tailored to the world of Supergirl. Seeing as Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) is presently engaged on a process that will give common people alien-like superpowers, it is totally doable that she would be the one liable for granting Pamela her powers within the first place. Likewise, it stands to purpose that when Manchester will get out of jail (which he undoubtedly will within the latter half of season 4), he would possibly be part of forces with Menagerie and related “Elites” to be able to proceed battling Lockwood and the assorted Youngsters of Liberty on his personal phrases.

Meraz’s flip on Supergirl reunites her with WBTV (which additionally produced her TNT collection Main Crimes) and is described as a “main recurring function” in Deadline‘s report. That additional suggests that Menagerie will not be a one-and-done villain of the week and can (presumably) work alongside Manchester for a number of episodes to come back. Likewise, there is a strong likelihood that much more members of the “Elite” – like Rampotatek aka. The Hat and Nathan Craig Jones aka. Coldcast – can be forged on Supergirl over the forthcoming weeks, because the present continues its mid-season hiatus.
