A new villain is coming to National City.
Rhona Mitra, known for her role on TNT's The Last Ship, has been tapped to star as Mercy Graves in Season 3 of Supergirl. Graves is the longtime bodyguard of Lex Luthor. She is an ex-CADMUS agent who has always believed in human exceptionalism. But with both Lex and Lillian in prison, Mercy is stepping out of the Luthor shadow and running her own show.
With her biting wit and lethal brawn, Mercy steadily becomes a key figure in National City’s growing “human-first” movement. And, she's not going to be working alone!
Grey's Anatomy alum Robert Baker has also joined the hit DC Entertainment drama as Mercy’s brother Otis Graves. He serves as his sister's defacto right hand man, and what he lacks in brains, he makes up for with his savant-like abilities to assassinate aliens.
The character of Marcy Graves first appeared on Superman: The Animated Series where she was voiced by Lisa Edelstein. Most recently, she was portrayed by Tao Okamoto in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice back in the spring of 2016.
Otis Graves originally appeared in the Superman movies with Christopher Reeve.
