Parker is set to play quiet and sensitive Malcolm, who is part of the Sisterhood of Dada and prefers to be invisible rather than face the harshness of the real world.
Elsewhere, Croft will portray Charles Rowland, a "affable, charming" member of the Dead Boy Detective Agency who remains haunted by his death from hypothermia back in 1989.
Other new faces set to be seen when the superhero show returns include Teenage Bounty Hunters' Wynn Everett (playing seductive terrorist Shelley Byron), Cloak & Dagger's Miles Mussenden (as heavily tattooed Lloyd Jefferson), MacGyver's Anita Kalathara (as party girl Holly McKenzie) and Dynasty's Gina Hiraizumi (as "enigmatic germaphobe" Sachiko aka The Quiz).
Jack Reacher 2's Madalyn Horcher and Tolkien's Ty Tennant will guest star as formerly demonically possessed medium Crystal Palace and hellboy Edwin Payne, respectively.
