just picked up two intriguing new members—one of whom may potentially have a dark future. Photo by Paul Gregory Photography
Actress Chyler Leigh (Grey’s Anatomy
) has been cast in the role of Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, Kara’s foster sister on the show. Fascinated by Kara’s powers from a young age, Alex developed a lifelong obsession with science which inspired her to become a doctor. Of note to fans is the last name—longtime Supergirl readers know that “Danvers” is a last name which has occasionally been used by Kara in the comics.
At the same time, David Harewood (Homeland, Selfie
) has been announced in the role of Hank Henshaw. A onetime CIA agent, Hank now runs the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), which tracks extraterrestrial threats on the planet Earth. Fans of the comics will also know that Hank Henshaw is known in DC Comics lore for being Cyborg Superman.
This news arrives after the announcement earlier this week that Calista Flockhart will be playing Cat Grant on the show, and also came with the news that Arrow
Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg will be joining Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler as an Executive Producer on Supergirl
DEO? Cat Grant? Cyborg Superman?! Man, we can’t wait to see this one!

POLICE SEIZE ‘WOLVERINE’S HAND’ IN DRUG RAID (WAIT, WHAT?)02/26/15 @ 3:28 pm EST
This June, a lone soldier ventures deep into unknown territory on a mission of personal discovery – and of blood-soaked survival! Today, Marvel is pleased to announce MARVEL ZOMBIES #1
– a brand-new Secret Wars series from writer Simon Spurrier (X-Force
, X-Men: Legacy
) and artist Kev Walker (New Avengers
, Avengers Arena)
She is Elsa Bloodstone
, one of the fiercest monster-hunters Battleworld has ever seen. Burdened with the task of keeping the zombie hordes to the south from rampaging through Battleworld, she patrols the borders from high atop the Shield. Day in and day out she fights and claws to keep the world safe, knowing that setting one foot into that hellish landscape means certain death. That is, until she spots a human girl among the corpses.
Knowing what untold horrors await her on the other side, she flings herself into the shambling hordes. But once she’s in, she’ll have to fight her way out…
“If you want an awesome book about an incredible woman digging deep into her own crumbling reserves to smash, blast and sneak her way through legions of your favorite Marvel personalities, corrupted into gurgling cackling brain-hungry insaniacs – then this is the book for you,” says writer Simon Spurrier in an upcoming interview with Marvel.com.
Can one woman stand against an endless army of the living dead? Clearly, you’ve never met Elsa Bloodstone. Be there when zombie-blasting, high-octane action kicks off this June in MARVEL ZOMBIES #1

EXPLORING UNTOLD TALES OF THE MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE IN COMICS FORM02/26/15 @ 3:24 pm EST
Police in Guelph, Ontario, probably didn’t mean to sound alarming when they reported they’d confiscated “Wolverine’s hand” during a drug bust. However, the hirsute mutant can regenerate, and these are (alleged) meth dealers we’re talking about, so what are expected to think?
But no, CBC News reports, these were Wolverine claws found among the cash, small quantities of meth, ecstasy, heroin and marijuana, bulletproof vest and assorted knives, hatchets and machetes.
A police department spokesman suggested “Wolverine’s hand” is actually a “push dagger,” but that’s not right, either. It’s actually called a claw gauntlet, among other things, but it seems awfully popular in … certain circles: U.K. customs officials seized steel Wolverine claws on at least two occasions in 2009, and in Utah in 2012, a 19-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly went after his roommate with a pair.

HEY, THE HULK’S IN CENTRAL PARK! MARVEL COMICS COVERS HIGHLIGHT NEW YORK02/26/15 @ 3:03 pm EST
For the production staff of Marvel Studios, comic books are more than just source material to adapt and inspire film and television projects. They're also a valuable storytelling tool that can expand the history of their interconnected universe and explore how their characters would react on some fun adventures that aren’t necessarily integral to the history of the universe.
As a result, Marvel Studios and Marvel publishing have recently begun collaborating on a number of print and digital Infinite tie-in comics that expand the history of and play with the characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These projects fill in gaps and extend personalities beyond the boundaries of the studios’ twice annual films and various TV series.
One of the chief architects behind these collaborations is Will Corona Pilgrim. The writer is currently heading up the two-issue “Marvel’s Ant-Man Prelude” series featuring art by Miguel Sepulveda as well as April's “Avengers: Operation Hydra” with artist Andrea Di Vito.

GWEN STACY: 'SPIDER-GWEN' BRINGS ICONIC SPIDER-MAN GIRLFRIEND BACK TO LIFE02/26/15 @ 2:57 pm EST
Unlike the heroes of DC Comics, which often protect fictional cities like Gotham and Metropolis, the heroes of Marvel Comics tend to cluster around New York: Spider-Man, or rather Peter Parker, grew up in Queens, the Avengers and the Fantastic Four are headquartered in Manhattan, and the X-Men have a school for gifted youngsters in Westchester.
Marvel is celebrating the New York roots of its heroes in May with a series of covers that showcase the city and its colorful champions.
“Each cover is carefully considered to make a statement about New York,” said Axel Alonso, the editor in chief of Marvel Comics.
The images include Ant-Man hanging out atop a hot dog cart, agents of the intelligence agency S.H.I.E.L.D. in aerial combat near the Statue of Liberty’s torch and the Incredible Hulk catching some non-gamma rays in Central Park.
There will be New York-themed covers on 15 series.

ALL’S FAIR IN LOVE & BATTLEWORLD IN STAR-LORD AND KITTY PRYDE #102/26/15 @ 2:38 pm EST
Gwen Stacy is iconic since becoming one of the first main characters in comic book history to kick the bucket.
Spider-Man's girlfriend died in 1973 after an epic battle between the web slinger and the Green Goblin, a huge move for comics and Marvel when no heroes died.
Well, now Marvel is bringing her back to life in "Spider-Gwen."
Yeah, you read that right. The magazine premiered Wednesday and has Stacy as a superhero in an alternate universe.
The story goes that the radioactive spider that bit Peter Parker actually bit Stacy on Earth-65, an alternate reality..
This isn't "Spider-Gwen's" first appearance though. She debuted in "Edge of Spider-Verse No. 2," where she watched Peter Parker die, not the other way around in the classic Spider-Man.
This version of Gwen Stacy is a rocker who plays in a band and gets slammed by Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson, who you may know as Parker's angry, Spider-Man hating boss in the original series. He blames her for Parker's death.
