In the February 1st episode of Supergirl, Kara will come face-to-face with an imperfect clone of herself dubbed Bizzaro. The name is another invention of Calista Flockhart's Cat Grant. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told Entertainment Weekly that Cat naming the character is "very appropriate." Having named the hero, she feels entitled to name her enemies.
Played by Hope Lauren, Bizzaro will try to end Kara, but Kara will be interested in saving her. "She's a monster, but she has a pure child's heart," Kreisberg explained. Kara will sense that element to the creature and look for a way to help her. "That makes the episode so emblematic of what's so special about Kara," he added. "She's looking to save everybody, even if they're the bad guy."
Lauren previously appeared on Agent Carter and Major Crimes among other shows.
