The CW had revealed the first image of Supergirl actor Nicole Maines in her character Nia Nal's upcoming full-time superhero identity of Dreamer. 

The "vision-plagued hero with a link to a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes" joined the cast this season to eventually become the first performer to play a trans superhero on television.

Viewers will learn Nia's backstory in the January 27th episode “Blood Memory,” in which Kara joins Nia on a trip to her hometown that includes meeting Nia’s mother (guest star Kate Burton).

While the CW promises a glimpse of the costume in that episode, but she won't be "fully suited up" until the February 17th episode, “Menagerie.”
