As Supergirl get sets to return for its third season, the series has brought in a rather significant new addition.
Brought in as Imra Ardeen, aka Saturn Girl, is Bollywood star Amy Jackson. In the comic book realm, the telepath from the future is a member of the famed Legion of Super-Heroes who debuted way back in 1958’s Adventure Comics #247. In Supergirl, the official description of the character has her pegged as “a kind, smart, and strong-willed hero who uses her telekinetic ability to help those in need. She was born on Titan, one of Saturn’s moons, and arrives on Earth to help Supergirl battle one of her biggest threats”. The role is described as a recurring one, so expect Saturn Girl to have a fairly heft role to play during the upcoming third season.
Saturn Girl has previously appeared in live-action as played by Alexz Johnson in The CW’s much-loved Smallville. There, she was joined by fellow Legion of Super-Heroes members Cosmic Boy and Lightning Lad as they travelled back in time to help Tom Welling’s Clark Kent. In animation form, Saturn Girl has been voiced by fan favourite Melissa Joan Hart in Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League Unlimited, and then Kari Wahlgren took over the gig for the character’s appearances in Legion of Super-Heroes.
Amy Jackson joins fellow Supergirl new additions Adrian Pasdar as Morgan Edge, Carl Lumbly as M’yrnn J’onzz, Yael Grobglas as Psi, Emma Tremblay as Ruby, and Odette Annable as the nefarious DC Worldkiller Reign.
Supergirl returns to US screens on October 9th, with a UK return set to follow shortly after that date.
