Entertainment Weekly has published three new photos from Season 4 of “Supergirl”, along with some quotes from Nicole Maines, who will play the role of Nia Nal, a passionate new reporter at CatCo who is destined to become the precognitive superhero Dreamer.

Nicole Maines has dreamed of donning a cape since she was little. Specifically, the 20-year-old activist-turned-actor remembers admiring Storm from the iconic X-Men animated series. “Being the little queer kid who just wanted to be a girly-girl, I saw that cape and that hair and I said, ‘Oh, that’s it,’ as I’m trying to explain to my parents, ‘I wanna be a girl. This is what we’re going for!’?” says Maines, who is transgender. And now she will finally get her chance.

“We’re telling a lot of stories of what’ll be happening in National City as a result of things that happen in the season opener. She’ll be reporting on all that there is and kind of learning from both Kara and from James,” Executive Producer Robert Rovner teases. “There are things that happen in this season opener that kind of propel the whole season forward, and the rise of the Children of Liberty and Agent Liberty [Sam Witwer], and she gets very involved with that.”

I’m starting to wonder if James will change his superhero’s name from guardian to steel.
