CBS has released an official synopsis for the April 11th episode of Supergirl, titled "Myriad," and it reveals that former WWE Diva Eve Torres will guest star as Maxima.

Kara must find a way to free her friends when Non (Chris Vance) and Indigo (Laura Vandervoort) use mind control to turn National City’s citizens into their own army.

In DC Comics, Maxima made her first appearance in Action Comics #645 (September 1989) and was created by Roger Stern and George Pérez. Maxima is from planet Almerac, where her family is royalty, and she comes to Earth to pursue a suitable mate: Superman. When the Man of Steel rejects her offer (several times), she seeks revenge against him.

In the New 52, Maxima is now an LGBT character. The new and improved version of Maxima debuted in Supergirl #36 (November 2014). She feels the weight of the world on her shoulders to find a mate, so she can help repopulate her planet, but her true desire is to be with a woman, like Supergirl!

"Myriad" episode of Supergirl will air Monday, April 11 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS.
