“Myriad” – Kara must find a way to free her friends when Non (Chris Vance) and Indigo (Laura Vandervoort) use mind control to turn National City’s citizens into their own army, on SUPERGIRL, Monday, April 11 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Maxima’s comic book origins trace back to 1989, when she first appeared in Action Comics #645. According to the DC Comics wiki, Maxima was royalty who came to Earth looking for a suitable mate:
Oldest child of the Royal family of the planet Almerac, the fiery-tempered Maxima came to Earth in search of a suitable mate, leaving behind Ultraa, her betrothed. She and Superman were genetically compatible; she could give him what no Earth woman could – children.
This isn’t Eve’s first acting gig: she had a recurring role on Matador, an original series for El Rey Network that was cancelled in 2014.
Eve’s episode of Supergirl – titled “Myriad” – airs Monday, April 11th at 8pm ET/PT on CBS.
