This week, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed that James Olsen would become the show’s version of Guardian. Now Supergirl co-star Mehcad Brooks has revealed James’ new look as the DC superhero, and it’s pretty sharp! (Is anyone else getting a Nobodies from Kingdom Hearts vibe going on here?)
From the sounds of it, Olsen begins his superhero career mostly because he’s bored—and who can blame him? With his romance with Kara seemingly shelved, there’s not much else for the photographer to do on the show. So it makes sense he’d want to fight alongside Supergirl to keep National City safe, even if he doesn’t want her to know it’s him.
