“Defiance” actor Jesse Rath has been cast as Brainiac 5 in the current third season of The CW’s “Supergirl” reports TV Line.
A descendent of the original Superman villain himself, Brainiac 5 is a member of the Legion of Superheroes who will travel to National City from the 31st century.
Brainiac 5 will help Supergirl and the DEO battle super villain Reign when he arrives. In the comics he was also a love interest for the girl of steel, no word if that’s the case here.
Rath will first appear in the tenth episode titled ‘Legion of Super-Heroes’.
