This collection includes his costumes designs for Martian Manhunter (played by David Harewood), the shapeshifting alien from Mars that runs the DEO; Livewire (played by Brit Morgan), the shock jock that gained electricity-based superpowers after being struck by a bolt of lightning; Master Jailer (played by Jeff Branson), the former and unrelenting guard of Fort Rozz; and Reactron (played by Chris Browning), the nuclear-powered supervillain.
Alex (Chyler Leigh) is kidnapped and the kidnapper threatens to kill her unless Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) releases a notorious criminal from prison. Supergirl and Maggie (Floriana Lima) have always had different approaches to apprehending criminals but this time they must work together to save Alex. Meanwhile, Rhea (guest star Teri Hatcher) has an interesting proposal for Lena (Katie McGrath).
Distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. International Television Distribution, SUPERGIRL is executive produced by Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash), Ali Adler (The New Normal), Andrew Kreisberg (The Flash, Arrow) and Sarah Schechter (Blindspot, The Mysteries of Laura). Supergirl is based on the characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and appearing in DC Comics, by special arrangement with the Jerry Siegel Family.
"Alex" episode of Supergirl airs Monday, May 1 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
“The Martian Manhunter, he's so powerful that it's almost too powerful for like a weekly series, like with all the things he could do,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said during a February press event. “If we really deployed him at his full comic book power arsenal, no one would be able to pull anything off of anybody. I mean, he's super strong, he can fly, he can phase through matter and he can read minds,” Kreisberg added. “I mean good luck trying to pull one over on him.”
"Heres my concept for Livewire," Villanueva wrote. "This jacket was really fun to paint, incorporating wiring, lights and tech." He adds, "Costume Design by: Kiersten Ronning."
Next time we see Livewire, she very well could be fighting alongside her former nemesis: Supergirl. After the Girl of Steel rescued her from a rogue scientist that abducted, tortured, and drained siphoned her abilities for his wannabe Livewires, it appeared as though Livewire rediscovered a part of her humanity. Perhaps, Supergirl will turn to her during the Season 2 finale?
"Part of the massive creative under taking in making this show is the design and fabrication for our costumes," co-executive producer Larry Teng shared. "Our incredibly talented designer Kiersten Ronning and her dedicated team perform daily miracles. This is the original concept art by [Alan Villanueva] for the Master Jailer costume."
