“Falling Skies” alum Ryan Robbins has joined the upcoming fourth season of “Arrow” as a recurring villain named Conklin, who will appear alongside Baron Reiter (Jimmy Akingbola) in Oliver Queen’s flashback sequences.
According to Variety, Robbins’ Conklin will be a “sadistic and ruthless” member of Shadowspire. In the comics, Conklin appeared as a minor villain in a Martian Manhunter backup tale in “Detective Comics” #287, so it seems as though “Arrow” will reinvent the character, who will debut in the third episode of the season.
Shadowspire, on the other hand, has a much longer comics history. First appearing in “Deathstroke” #53, the organization aided South American drug cartels by supplying them with weapons, transportation, technology, intelligence and more. In the comics, Reiter’s Shadowspire associates include Steelhawk, Kodrescu, Mourn I and Mourn II, though it’s unclear if Conklin will take on any of these monikers.
