Supergirl's Brainiac 5 actor, Jesse Rath, has taken to Twitter to defend his character's look on the show after some fans lobbed jokes and criticism about it, zeroing in on his hair and skin-tone.

"I get better looking throughout the episode. I promise," said Rath on Twitter. "Just wait till I start talking. I'll grow on you."

Rath also shared an image of the character, pictured above, saying "Check out the perfected turquoise Einstein look! Talk about good looking! Hubba hubba! Am I right?"

Rath will make his debut as Brainiac 5 in Supergirl's mid-season premiere - aptly titled "Legion of Super-Heroes" - which airs January 15.
