Legends Of Tomorrow has added a major DC Comics character to The Waverider next season.
American Odyssey actress Tala Ashe has joined the cast of the hit DC Entertainment drama as Zari Adrianna Tomas, better known in the comics as Isis. She was a citizen of the fictional nation of Kahndaq who fought against the villainous Black Adam.
Zari is a Muslim-American woman from the year 2030 who lives in a world of contradictions — technology has brought about incredible change in her future, but too bad human nature hasn’t kept pace. Fear, prejudice and a lack of care for the planet have forced Zari to become a “grey hat hacktivist. The character is described as a computer nerd with a wry, combative attitude, she is a woman living a double life who doesn’t realize that she has secret, latent powers derived from an ancient, mystical source.
