He was teased during San Diego Comic Con and now Supergirl has their Reactron in Chris Browning.


Browning is an experienced TV and film actor, after breaking into acting with roles on Silk Stalkings and In Living Color in 1991, Browning has had dozens of appearances on series like: In the House, As the World Turns, CSI and Graceland.  Most might know Browning from his run on Sons of Anarchy and the CW series, The 100.  He's also appeared on numerous films, such as 3:10 to Yuma opposite two other DC actors; Christian Bale and Russell Crowe.  (imdb)


Created by Paul Kupperberg and Carmine Infantino, Reactron is a villain that dates back to The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl, issue 8.  Ben Krullen was a in the US Army during Vietnam, he participated in a massacre of a village before going AWOL.  The incident caused Krullen to discover his powers; he was able to give off radiation in the form of concussive blasts.  In addition to tangling with Supergirl, he fought the Doom Patrol.

After the DC Reboot following Crisis on Infinite Earths, Reactron was renamed Benjamin Martin Krull.  He became a nemesis of Power Girl and the Doom Patrol though his powers were largely unchanged.  He was a member of the Suicide Squad for a while before he was reimagined during the "New Krypton" storyline.  After this he was given a heart of Gold Kryptonite, similar to Metallo.  During one battle he killed Supergirl's father, Zor-El.  Reactron then destroys New Krypton in a suicide attack.

Though he is listed as a guest star in episode 3, the article suggests Browning will more than likely return.


Supergirl airs Monday Nights at 8E on CBS starting October 26th, 2015.
