Supergirl’s Azie Tesfai suits up as guardian

If "Supergirl" has taught us anything, it’s that sometimes super heroics run in the family.

Today, The CW shared our first image of Azie Tesfai as National City’s newest Guardian. Tesfai plays Kelly Olsen on the show, and Guardian, of course, was a mantle first taken up by her brother, James. And it turns out Tesfai looks every bit the hero as her super-minded sibling.

Tesfai will make her Guardian debut in this season’s 12th episode, which is entitled “Blind Spots” and will air on September 21, 2021. Along with playing a prominent role in the episode, Tesfai also co-wrote it along with co-producer J. Holtham, and will be taking on themes of racial inequality within it.

The episode was directed by someone who will be greatly familiar to “Arrow” fans — David Ramsey, who will also make an appearance as John Diggle.

“Supergirl’s” mid-season finale airs next Tuesday, May 11, before the series goes on hiatus for a few months, returning later this summer on Aug. 24 for what will be the series’ final run of episodes.
