Supergirl’s Guardian Wields His Mighty Shield in New Photos

Not only is James Olsen getting a brand new superhero identity, the “Supergirl” co-star is also set to receive exactly what every up-and-coming vigilante needs: a sweet ride, and some hi-tech weaponry.

EXCLUSIVE: Supergirl’s Jimmy Olsen Explains Why He Needs to Be a Superhero

New photos from the Nov. 14 episode, “Changing,” feature actor Mehcad Brooks in his Guardian gear, astride a motorcycle with his (presumably) state of the art shield in hand.

Introduced in 1942 by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, Guardian resembled their earlier creation Captain America in that he possessed no superpowers and instead relied upon an indestructible shield. The characters alter ego was originally Jim Harper, a police officer who was tired of seeing criminals evade justice.
