SUPERGIRL: Miss Martian and Mon-El Are Coming to National City as Sharon Leal and Chris Wood Are Cast


It seems the rumors of Chris Wood (Vampire Diaries) playing the role of Mon-El on the CW's 'Supergirl' were true after all. It was announced at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Thursday that he'll be joining the second season of the DC Comics-based superhero show. Miss Martian will also be appearing and be played by Sharon Leal (Grimm, Dreamgirls).

Mon-El aka Lar Gand, is a Daxamite and has similar powers to Superman but is weakened by lead instead of Kryptonite.  Usually, Mon-El is a member of the Legion of Superheroes, a super team from another millennium in the future, but it's not clear if we'll see his affiliation play into the show. It does clear up who was in the escape pod that Kara opened in the season one finale. 

Miss Martian/M’gann M’orzz/Megan Morse, is a white martian who escaped the war between the green martians and the white martians on Mars. In the comics, she pretended to be a green martian when she joined the Teen Titans. Her background is sure to be in conflict with  J’onn J’onzz/Martian Manhunter/Hank Henshaw (David Harewood) whose devasting past was the subject of an episode when a rogue white martian wreaked havoc on and episode last season.

Supergirl season two is adding many other familiar names from the comics as Lena Luthor (Sarah Grey), Maggie Sawyer (Floriana Lima), Snapper Carr (Ian Gomez), and Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) will appear this coming season as well. And yes, there will be a musical two-part episode crossover with CW's 'The Flash' late in the season. 

Supergirl season two begins on Monday, October 10 at 8 pm EST on The CW.

REVIEW: 'Redneck' #2 by Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, and Dee Cunniffe

'Redneck' arrived a month ago redefining the vampire genre by not giving into convention or cliché. In fact, if you've read the first two issues, the vampire angle serves more as subtext than its selling point. It's the perfect approach to this character-driven southern fried drama that simmers with tension and intrigue.

The Bowman's way of life just got upended and what was once a peaceful and secluded existence is on the verge of war. The vampires of Texas keep to themselves, raise their cattle, drink its blood and sell the meat through their BBQ joint. Seems like a brilliant front to keep them in the shadows while staking out a living. All that is threatened when one of their own is killed after a night on the town. This issues fills in the holes to what might have happened and what the hell is…

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …
