With this week’s revelation that Chris Wood will be playing longtime Legion of Super-Heroes member Mon-El in the second season of The CW’s Supergirl, the question on everyone’s mind is whether he might bring his time-tossed teammates with him.
The clues are certainly there: besides just Lar-Gand/Mon-El being the one who landed in National City at the end of Season One, there’s the fact that longtime Superman supporting cast member Maggie Sawyer is coming to the city as a member of the “Science Police.”
In the pages of DC Comics, Sawyer worked in both the Metropolis Special Crimes Unit and the Gotham City Police Department. As an out lesbian, Sawyer dated and became engaged to Kate Kane, Batwoman, in the New 52 relaunch of DC Comics. On the show, she’ll be working for the Science Police, an agency dealing with metahuman and extra-terrestrial threats that sounds like (if it’s anything like the comics version) it will be a more openly-operating unit than the DEO.
