    Why do they keep grabbing characters that Supergirl has never had anything to do with? Even worse, random characters no one cares about. It’s bad enough they’ve changed everything we know about the main characters, now lets add dumass characters like the lumberjack and vortax. Like really? Next why not Superboy Connor Kent, and just for shits, lets make him an asian/romainian mix who speaks bulgarian and tap dances in his spare time when not solving murder mysteries. Sounds about on par with everything else CBC keeps announcing.

    • It’s a rumor, not official and I agree, he’s a very random character to have on the show if true.
