Laura Vandervoort, who played Supergirl on Smallville, returns to the franchise next week, but this time as a villain. The actress will appear as Indigo on the Supergirl episode "Solitude," and the first images of her in full make-up and costume have been released by CBS.
The images show a blue-skinned red-haired character, calling to mind a certain villain/hero from those Fox superhero movies, but more notably are what's on her forehead. Yes, that's Brainiac's tell-tale three dots; while Indigo has connections to Brainiac in the comics (she was eventually revealed as a Brainiac-designed android), they weren't quite as obvious as they will be on the show.
Check out the gallery for the episode below, now with added Indigo images (along with previously-released shots of the Fortress of Solitude), after the official description.
"Solitude" -- Kara travels to Superman's Fortress of Solitude in hopes of learning how to defeat Indigo (Laura Vandervoort, pictured), a dangerous being who can transport via the Internet and who has a connection to Kara's past, on SUPERGIRL, Monday, Feb. 29 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
