Move over, white supremacist march-alonging Supergirl cosplayer! The upcoming CW Seed animated series Freedom Fighters: The Ray will feature Supergirl star Melissa Benoist voicing a Nazi Supergirl from Earth X!

CW Seed's Freedom Fighters: The Ray Will Feature Its Own Nazi Supergirl

Freedom Fighters: The Ray takes place in an alternate Earth — Earth X — where the Nazis won World War 2. The show will also feature Nazi versions of popular superheroes, including The Flash, Green Arrow, and Supergirl herself. And at least in the case of Supergirl, or Overgirl, as she's known on Nazi Earth, she'll be voiced by the actress who plays Supergirl in the eponymous CW series.

"Melissa is so sweet, and so is her interpretation of Supergirl," said executive producer Marc Guggenheim in an interview with TV Insider. "It was fun to hear her voice records and see she's capable of a darkness. I think she really enjoyed playing the bad guy for a bit!"

Freedom Fighters: The Ray launches on the CW streaming service, CW Seed, this Fall.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
