Former WWE wrestler Eve Torres Gracie has been cast to play Maxima in an upcoming episode of CBS's Supergirl. According to CBS, Torres Gracie will debut in April 11's "Myriad" episode. The episode synopsis doesn't disclose how Maxima will factor into the series, instead focusing on Melissa Benoist's Supergirl and her continued battles against Non and Indigo.


Maxima was created in 1989's Action Comics #645 by Roger Stern and George Perez. A princess from the planet Almerac, she ventures to Earth to find a mate in Superman. After being rebuffed by the Man of Steel on several occasions, Maxima turns angry and attacks him. With the advent of the "New 52" however, Maxima was reintroduced in a similiar storyline, however with Supergirl in her sights as a potential mate.
