SDCC: Season 4 Trailer Arrives For Supergirl, Transgender Heroine Dreamer Cast

April Parker Jones

Not all heroes have, or need, super powers. Television's hit drama Supergirl took the stage at the show's Comic-Con 2018 panel session to reveal that the DC Super Hero series will welcome three new cast members for the upcoming 2018-19 season - including TV's first transgender superhero. She added that Nia Nal is an appealing role to take on because of who she is on the inside.

The CW's Supergirl is making history with the addition of television's first transgender superhero.

Another new character sounds like another good guy, but she may not be quite as consistently on the up-and-up as a superhero would be.

"She's so pure", Maines said. From her description, it sounds like she'll be following a similar path to Kara on the show - she has a strong sense of right and wrong and a drive to use her abilities to protect others.

Nicole Maines says she wants viewers to realise that a trans character's plotline doesn't have to revolve around them being trans. "Because it's such an important issue right now in our society and in the world". "It seems only fitting that we have a trans superhero for trans kids to look up to".

Trump finds it 'inconceivable' lawyer would tape a client
Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, claimed Friday there were "multiple" tapes and urged Cohen to release all audio recordings publicly. His lawyer has said the payment was never made. "In the big scheme of things, it's powerful exculpatory evidence", Giuliani said.

"Nia is so much more than just a trans superhero".

Nicole will play Nia Nal, aka Dreamer, "the newest addition to the CatCo reporting team". She appeared in the HBO documentary The Trans List, and guest-starred as a transgender teen on the USA Network series Royal Pains. Dedicated to her country, she always acts in its best interest - even if it's not her own. There will apparently be many parallels between her journey to self-discovery and destiny fulfillment with Supergirl herself - we'll just have to wait and see what those similarities will be.

Up, up, and away Supergirl goes to a historic casting decision.

It's a matter of getting people to better understand the context, she said. With trans folks we have a lot of people accusing us of just playing dress up for whatever reasons and that's just not true. "Having trans people play trans roles show that we are valid in our identities and we exist".
