The Supergirl character will join the CW series “Smallville” for its upcoming seventh and likely final season reports Zap2It.
The latest season will premiere with the arrival of Kara, Clark’s (Tom Welling) 19-year-old cousin born on Krypton. As the daughter of Zor-El, Jor-El’s brother, Kara also has superpowers, including one that Clark has yet to develop: the ability to fly.
On the more mundane side, Kara butts heads with Clark, is sweet on Jimmy Olsen (Aaron Ashmore) and draws Lex’s (Michael Rosenbaum) attention. Casting for the Supergirl role is currently underway.
A false Kara already appeared in the third season finale, but was revealed to be a regular human girl who disappeared ten years before and had been brainwashed by Jor-El.
