Brainiac-5 is coming to Supergirl.

Actor Meaghan Rath is joining the cast of Supergirl as an updated version of Brainiac-5.  Meaghan’s real life brother, Jesse Rath, currently plays Brainiac-5 and made the announcement during the Supergirl panel at San Diego Comic-Con.

“This is something that I’ve been pitching since I got the role.  You can’t talk about Brainy without talking about his family.  My real-life sister will be joining the show, Meaghan Rath.  She will be playing a female Brainiac-5.”

In the comics, Brainiac-5 has always been portrayed as a hero and is a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes (much like the character did in season 3) and was created by Jerry Siegel and Jim Mooney.

Supergirl returns on Sunday, October 9th at 9pm EST/PT on The CW
