It seems Manchester Black (David Ajala) will be forming The Elite on The CW’s Supergirl.
TVLine reports Jessica Meraz will join the series as Pamela Ferrer — aka Menagerie — a member of Manchester Black’s superpowered gang in the pages of Action Comics and other DC Comics. Created by Joe Kelly and Doug Mahnke, Menagerie and the other members of The Elite were a response to the violent superheroes of Warren Ellis’s The Authority. In Action Comics #775, she debuted as a woman bonded with some alien warrior creatures. The beings could formed into weapons or used directly as themselves in a pastiche of The Authority’s Engineer.
On Supergirl, Menagerie will first be seen as a “jewel thief who doesn’t mind hurting people.” But considering The Elite’s love of superpowers in the comic books, it remains to be seen how long Manchester and his troop will remain conventional humans.
Supergirl airs Sundays on The CW.
