Parasite Got Reborn In ‘Supergirl’

Published

on

For the past few seasons, Supergirl has delivered some strong storylines revolving Kara Danvers. The show has also brought characters such as Brainiac 5 and Martian Manhunter to life. Recently, the show re-introduced an old foe to the Arrowverse.

Two Tickets To Parasite

In the recent episode “Parasite Lost,” Parasite made its grand return. The villain was first seen in the season two episode “Changing.” This episode found Dr. Rudy Jones being transformed into this sinister foe.

For “Parasite Lost,” agent Raymond Jensen, who is played by Anthony Konechny, became the villain.

A Suitable Foe

The Parasite character made its DC Comics debut back in 1966. The first person to hold the Parasite mantle was Raymond Maxwell Jensen, who was originally a plant worker. The CW series swapped his job title for a more appropriate one. The second (and most known) Parasite was Rudy Jones, who debuted in 1987. Jones’ version of Parasite was featured in numerous cartoons and video games. Following Jones were Alex and Alexandra Allston in 2004 and Joshua Michael Allen in 2011.

Parasite has the ability to take superpowers, memories, and abilities away from its target. While it’s only temporary, it can do major damage in the long run.

Undoing Their Wrongs?

Many fans are stating that Parasite’s return was to make up for his early departure from the series. The character has a long history with both Superman and Supergirl. With Superman possibly getting a new CW series, re-introducing Parasite could be a great way to set things up.

This season of Supergirl, which is inspired by Superman: Red Son, has gained high praise for its political storylines. Over the summer, the show landed five Teen Choice Awards nominations. Melissa Benoist, who plays the title character, won for Choice Action TV Actress.
