First Villain Revealed For DC Sitcom 'Powerless'
The upcoming NBC sitcom Powerless focuses on a group of insurance company employees who have to deal with the constant damage inflicted by their town's superheroes and supervillains. We've always known that the show would feature actual DC Comics characters, but none have been officially confirmed. We did learn about the inclusion of hero Crimson Fox thanks to some leaked set photos, but the show's villains had remained a mystery. Until now.

The series' first bad guy has been revealed. In an interview with DC All Access, series stars Alan Tudyk, Vanessa Hudgens, and Danny Pudi reveal that one of the show's supervillain is Jack O'Lantern.



So who's Jack O'Lantern? There have been three iterations of the character, but the original and longest running was Daniel Cormac, an Irish farmer who was given a magical lantern by a fairy that gives him numerous powers. Cormac was a hero for most of his tenure, but did have a stint as a villain when he teamed up with the Queen Bee.
