Supergirl's newest enemy has the super-strength, and the bad attitude, necessary to take down the Girl of Steel. She has pretty sleek costume to boot!
The DC Comics series has offered the first look at the suit worn later this season by Odette Annable as Reign, a Kryptonian refugee only just beginning to discover her destiny as the destroyer of earth. Take a look below:

The character is a spin-off of the DC Comics alien race known as the Worldkillers, who were genetically modified in the last days of Krypton as the ultimate weapon before turning against their creators.
Former Banshee star Odette Annable made her first Supergirl appearance in the season three premiere as Samantha Arias, a young mother who saves her daughter from almost certain doom during one of Kara's battles.
Arias had no clue about her Kryptonian origins at that time, but she's slowly started to realise each passing episode that she's no mere mortal. Eventually, we'll see her fulfill her dark destiny as Reign for a showdown with fellow Kryptonian refugee Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist).
Kara has yet another showdown with a Kryptonian in the works later in the season, so she should probably conserve some energy. Supergirl and her super friends will battle evil versions of themselves when dopplegangers Earth-X invade Barry Allen and Iris West's wedding in November's four-episode crossover.
Luckily, the super-friends will have some help from Russell Tovey, who makes his first appearance as The Ray in the crossover event too.
Supergirl continues each Monday at 8pm ET on The CW in the US. Sky1 airs the series in the UK.
