Melissa Benoist, CBS, Red Tornado, Kara Zor-El &q…

"Red Tornado is the most advanced android the world has ever seen," the official character description reads. "Designed by scientist T.O. Morrow for the U.S. Army as the ultimate superweapon, he soon becomes sentient, posing a grave danger to National City -- including the people Supergirl cares about most."

Kara (Melissa Benoist) has her work cut out for her when Supergirl premieres. CBS has released the first photo of Iddo Goldberg as Red Tornado, a villain who poses "grave danger" to the titular superhero.

"Supergirl" executive producer Greg Berlanti told Variety that Red Tornado "has an affiliation with General Lane," the father of Lois and Lucy Lane. 

DC villains Livewire, Reactron and Non will also make an appearance in season one.
