Supergirl may be a hero from Krypton, but she still needs somewhere to live and work. After a long day grabbing lattes and solving problems for Cat Grant, one of the most successful publishers in National City, she kicks back in her eclectic and surprisingly crafty apartment painting or watching TV with her sister.
From the moment Mehcad Brooks was cast in the role of James Olsen on Supergirl, it was clear that this wasn’t your father’s Jimmy Olsen. (In fact, you’d better not call him “Jimmy” at all, if you’re not Superman.) Suave, sexy and confident, Brooks and his take on the role are a far cry from the red-hair-and-bow-tie Olsen of old.
