Supergirl’s Guardian Revealed!
“James Olsen takes on the mantle of the classic DC Comics hero, Guardian. With his trademark shield intact, James will fight to protect National City alongside Supergirl”. “James has a pretty big turn coming up. These next few episodes are going to make him realize that being a photographer…is not enough for him, so he’s going to go on a pretty exciting career trajectory that we’re pretty pumped by,” teased executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “James is going to decide that he can no longer sit back and be a sidekick, so he’s going to become a vigilante. He’s going to become Guardian, complete with the shield, which is going to cause a massive problem in his relationship with Kara, because he’s not going to tell her.”
For the most part the costume looks pretty solid. It’s not the traditional gold, but clearly a touch of paint fixes that right up. Although, is there a weird CW superhero show trend where everyone connected to the hero eventually ends up in a costume?
All I’m saying is, if Iris West starts wearing a suit of some sort then I’m gonna just assume the creators have forgotten how to write no costumed characters.
Look forward to more Jimmy Olsen as The Guardian this season on Supergirl!
