SUPERGIRL Season 4 Premiere Photos Offer A First Look At Rhona Mitra As Mercy Graves And More

The CW has released some images from the upcoming season four premiere of Supergirl and these put the spotlight on a number of new and returning characters bound to make the Girl of Steel's life difficult.

Supergirl season four is just weeks away and The CW has now released a full gallery of photos from the premiere. These put the spotlight on plenty of new and returning faces, including Nia Nal (a.k.a. Dreamer) and the villainous Mercy Graves. After a solid third year which pitted the Girl of Steel against Reign, the show is on the rise, especially with Superman returning during this year's crossover.

There's a lot of good stuff in this gallery but the highlight may be our first look at Nia, a character who will become the first transgender superhero in any comic book adaptation. Mercy looks very formidable too, though, so to check these images out, all you guys have to do is click on the "View List" button below. Once you're done, be sure to head to the comments section to share your thoughts. 


SUPERGIRL

It's thought that Lena Luthor will undergo something of a villainous transformation during this season of Supergirl as Kara Danvers' one-time friend starts heading down a similar path to her brother.
 
SUPERGIRL

James Olsen has never really found a place in this series and it's kind of surprising to see that he's still around, especially after that whole Guardian vigilant subplot fizzed out quite quickly last year. 
 
SUPERGIRL

This year, it appears as if the focus will be on him growing closer with Lena but would it not have been a better idea to have him just be portrayed as a photographer who helps Kara out on her adventures?
 
SUPERGIRL

Kara Danvers is a full-fledged reporter these days and she's looking rather thoughtful in this shot. Spoiler alert: there's no sign of her sister Alex throughout the rest of this gallery of premiere images!
 
SUPERGIRL

Nicole Maines is set to make history as Nia Nal as she will be the first transgender superhero seen in a live-action superhero adaptation of any sort. In the comics, she's best known as Dreamer.
 
SUPERGIRL

While she'll be posing as a reporter during the first half of the season, it's been confirmed that we will indeed see her suit up and that's bound to get a large portion of the show's fanbase happy!
 
SUPERGIRL

A relatively obscure character from the comic books, it's hard to say just how closely Supergirl will stick to the source material when it comes to portraying the hero but they have plenty of wiggle room.
 
SUPERGIRL

It appears as if Kara will strike up a friendship of sorts with her new co-worker as the series goes on and it's definitely a good move to see a transgender character embraced this way right off the bat.
 
SUPERGIRL

For a while, it appeared as if Melissa Benoist would be one and done when it came to how many seasons she would play the Girl of Steel for but The CW thankfully stepped in to save her back in 2016.
 
SUPERGIRL

One character The CW is keeping under wraps, for now, is Sam Witwer's, Agent Liberty. Another character who may end up veering from the comics, don't be surprised if we get a suit reveal soon.
 
SUPERGIRL

Don't worry, there are shots of Kara Danvers suited up as Supergirl coming! The hero will soon have some company in the female superhero department as Batwoman will be introduced in the crossover.
 
SUPERGIRL
 
SUPERGIRL

Here, we have a first look at Rhona Mitra as Mercy Graves and Robert Baker as her brother Otis Graves. The signs are pointing to them being the show's big bads this year and they look formidable.
 
SUPERGIRL
 
SUPERGIRL

At the end of season three, we learned that Kara Danvers has a doppelganger but that's a plot point which will reportedly play out over the course of this year so don't expect any big reveals early on.
 
SUPERGIRL

Martian Manhunter continues to play a pivotal role in this series and while we don't know a huge amount about his season four story arc, the hero can be seen here interacting with a fellow alien.
