SUPERGIRL: First Official Look At Azie Tesfai Suited-Up As Guardian Revealed

We found out earlier this year that Azie Tesfair's Kelly Olsen would follow in her brother James' footsteps by taking up the Guardian mantle, and a first look at the character is now online...

National City has a new Guardian, and we have a first look at Azie Tesfair (Jane the Virgin, The Wretched) in full costume as the golden armour-clad vigilante.

It was reported back in March that Tesfair's character, Kelly Olsen, would follow in her brother Jimmy's (Mehcad Brooks) footsteps by taking up the Guardian mantle, and she's set to make her official debut as the hero in the upcoming 12th episode of the sixth and final season.

"That [has] been our plan since the beginning of creating that role," said co-showrunner Jessica Queller regarding Kelly's transformation. "We just wanted to find the right context for it, and so it just evolved really beautifully in the context of the social justice stories we wanted to tell [in season 6]."

The episode, which is titled "Blind Spot," is set to air on September 21, and will tackle racial inequality. Tesfai co-wrote it with co-producer J.Holtham, with Arrow alum David Ramsey stepping behind the camera to direct. He's also on board to reprise his role as John Diggle.

"[Episode] 12, in my opinion, for Kelly, is the most epic episode of the season, so I'm excited to get to pen it," Tesfai tells EW. "To have David Ramsey directing the episode... that makes me really excited. Ramsey and I had dinner the other night and just talking about his perspective and experiences; they're very different than mine. So, I think to have such a well-balanced [group] between me, J., who I'm writing the episode with, and David Ramsey, I think fans will feel really excited and hopefully seen and heard."
