National City will have to make room for some new faces next season.
According to her official character description, Nal is the newest addition to the CatCo reporting team. Although Nura was introduced in the pages of Adventure Comics #317 in 1964 as Dream Girl, the character was also briefly known as Dreamer in the '90s.
Supergirl will be making history in Season 4. "She's the superhero we need right now". We'll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Supergirl and the rest of the Arrowverse as it becomes available.
"I've just been doing a lot of auditions lately because a lot of different shows have been really eager to tell the stories of transgender people, especially transgender youth", Maines told the audience. "Because it's such an important issue right now in our society and in the world". And so it seems only fitting that we have a trans superhero for trans kids to look up to.
"Nia is so much more than just a trans superhero". David Ajala also takes on the recurring role of Manchester Black, a Superman villain from the DC Comics lore. She's a woman who has made her entire career throughout her lifetime in the military, and she operates based on what her commanding officers require and ask of her. David Ajala plays Manchester Black, "the type of guy who brings a knife to a gunfight and still walks away the victor".
Manchester Black, played by David Ajala, is described as having "a dark past" that leads him to deflect "the brutality of his mission with his charm and sense of humor".
Just how Nia will factor in with the chaos and mayhem threatening to destroy the Earth (yet again) remains to be seen, but it's safe to say that when Supergirl returns on October 14, she'll be out there kicking alien ass and taking names with the best of them.
