Melissa Benoist's Supergirl

A new recurring villain has just been added to the cast of Supergirl for The CW series fourth season.

Jessica Meraz, who previously appeared on Major Crimes and Tacoma FD, will appear as Pamela Ferrer, better known to comic book fans as the villain Menagerie. The character will be an unscrupulous jewel thief who allies herself with Manchester Black (David Ajala) against the Girl of Steel.

Created alongside Manchester Black by writer Joe Kelly and artist Doug Manhke in Action Comics #775 as a member of The Elite, Menagerie was part of Manchester's team of vigilantes that openly employed lethal force against criminals, putting them on a collision course with Superman. With the fourth season of Supergirl loosely adapting the story, it will be up to Kara to stop the antiheroes for good.

Menagerie is the latest villain to make her live-action debut this season on the DCTV series, joining Manchester Black and Agent Liberty (Sam Witwer) as new foes for the titular DC superhero.
