National City, look out, because a new villain is coming to town. Mercedes “Mercy” Graves is stepping out from the shadows and into the spotlight. Now that Lex and Lilian Luthor are behind bars, the time is now for Mercy to take control.
Based on the iconic DC character of the same name, Rhona Mitra will be portraying Mercy Graves on CW’s hit show Supergirl that stars Melissa Benoist in the titular role. Mercy will be storming through the city with a “human-first” movement, showing that these alien superheroes have pushed humans to the side.
Mercy’s right-hand man will be Otis Graves with Robert Baker slated for that role. Otis has not been depicted in the comic books but the character did appear in the Superman movies with Christopher Reeve in the titular role. And Otis may not be the brightest, but Mercy can trust him to take down aliens.
Mercy Graves first jumped from the comic pages and onto the screen in Superman: The Animated Series with Lisa Edelstein as the voice talent behind the character. In the 2016 film Batman v Superman, Mercy was portrayed by Tao Okamoto.
