‘Supergirl’: Justice Leak Cast as DC Villain Hellgrammite

Another villain is coming to Supergirl.

Justice Leak has been cast as DC villain Hellgrammite in Supergirl, CBS announced.

Known as Roderick Rose in the comics, Hellgrammite is “an alien that Supergirl will be chasing in the network’s freshman drama.

In the comics, Rose was transformed into an insect-like villain after some experimentation. After the transformation, he has powers including super strength and improved jumping. His villainous name originates from the hellgrammite bug. No word on the television show’s reiteration of his character, but surely it’ll pay homage to the comic book character to some extent.

Supergirl premieres Monday, Oct. 26 at 8:30/7:30c on CBS.
