BEWARE OF SPOILERS!
The former Vice President of Phil Baker, who takes over after the latters crimes are exposed.
Former President Phil Baker
Portrayed By: Bruce Boxleitner
The former Vice President and current President of the United States of America, who assumed office after Olivia Marsdin was forced to resign when the world found out she was secretly an alien.
He is eventually revealed to be utterly corrupt.
- Corrupt Politician: He commissioned a secret satellite to attack any alien ships behind Colonel Haley and Alex's backs, even though as leaders of the D.E.O. they should've had jurisdiction over it.
- Evil All Along: He appears to be only racist towards aliens, but is eventually revealed that he's also a traitor to his country.
- Evil Is Petty: Makes Lockwood the Director of Alien Affairs as way to get back at Supergirl for destroying his illegal Kill Sat meant so stop aliens from coming to Earth ... that was hijacked by Manchester Black to destroy the White House.
- Fantastic Racism: He grows more hostile to Supergirl and aliens in general over the course of Season Four. First he goes behind the back of the D.E.O. and commissions an illegal Kill Sat to shoot all alien aircrafts entering Earth. Then he makes Lockwood Director of Alien Affairs, knowing full well what the man will do with that kind of power. After Red Daughter's attack on the White House, he makes a televised speech in which he blames all aliens for the actions of one and emphasizes that he only views humans as Americans.
- Hate Sink: At first he seems like a decent guy who's just in over his head. This is quickly dispelled over Season Four as he abandons mere sleaziness for open corruptness. Not only is he shown to be a petty and self centered, he enables and officially deputizes Ben Lockwood and the Children of Liberty partly to spite Supergirl for destroying government property even though it saved his life in the process. Colonel Haley also reveals that his precious weaponized satellite was actually made against protocol, meaning he violating the laws that he as President should be actively upholding.
- Head-in-the-Sand Management: His solution to deal with the protests demanding Ben Lockwood's release? Actually release the man under the pretext that terrorist attacks against aliens can't be persecuted under current law, just so they'll go away.
- It's All About Me: His rantings about his "poll numbers" make it obvious that he could care less about actually helping the country and only cares about what people think of him as President. It's also clear he'd rather be seen as popular than actually doing anything to make himself that way.
- Jerkass Has a Point: As rude as he might be, he has a point in calling for more control in the current situation, as the public is very distrustful due to the whole affair with Marsdin.
- Karma Houdini Warranty: His crimes are eventually uncovered in the Season 4 finale, with him being removed from office and criminally charged.
- Obstructive Bureaucrat: In contrast to Marsdin, he puts restrictions on the D.E.O. and threatens heavy consequences in case they don't follow his orders. And then he fires Supergirl from the D.E.O. when she refuses to reveal her identity to the world.
- President Evil: Starts off as corrupt by releasing Lockwood and then giving everything he wants on a silver platter and then he's revealed to be a traitor to the USA by being in on Lex and Kaznia's scheme to invade America.
- Puppet King: His ascent to power was masterminded by Lex Luthor, who is the real one calling the shots once Baker is president.
- Sanity Slippage: His increasingly erratic and corrupt decisions suggest that for all his smugness and schmoozing he's unable to handle the job as President.
- Sleazy Politician: He's a very poor Commander in Chief, unable to handle the pressure of the crisis brought on by the rise of the Children of Liberty and alien xenophobia; ranting and raving how the D.E.O.'s (perceived) poor performance is making him look bad and rather than doing what is right and he prefers taking the easy way if it'll mean his poll numbers will go back up - even if it means firing Supergirl.
- You Are in Command Now: Steps up as president following Marsdin's outing as an alien.
Former President Olivia Marsdin
Portrayed By: Lynda Carter
A Durlan who is the former President of the United States of America.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Her job requires her to be at arms length from national crisis to keep personal interest out of her decisions.
- Ambiguously Evil: Her alignment is left vague throughout Season 2. By the end it is clear, she is firmly on the side of Earth.
- Artistic License Law: Olivia admits that she was born on another planet, thus her presidency is in violation of the Natural-born-citizen clause. Reality Ensues in Season 4, when the world finds out she's an alien and she decides to step down rather than fight to stay in office which she knows is a hopeless cause.
- Big Good: Naturally, of both the United States and of Earth.
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": In her first appearance, she's only referred to by her job title. Her name was revealed with the news of Carter's casting.
- Everyone Went to School Together: She went to college with Cat Grant. Cat once saw her in her alien form, but chalked it up to being high.
- Grandma, What Massive Hotness You Have!: Courtesy of being played by former beauty queen, Lynda Carter.
- Horrible Judge of Character: Either Baker was really good at hiding his true self, or she was blind to what a horrible person she selected as her VP.
- Meaningful Name: Her first name Olivia is the feminine version of olive, which is a symbol for peace, something she wants to achieve between humans and aliens. Given that she herself is an alien, it's likely that she deliberately chose that name. Also, "Marsdin" is a reference to the creator of Wonder Woman, William Moulton Marston, and "Olivia" could be to Marston's partner Olive Byrne (whom he based Wonder Woman's appearance on).
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: When her cover is blown — the resulting fallout means she not only has to resign from office but also it causes an uptake in alien hate crimes across America.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Carter says that she based off her performance on Hillary Clinton.
- Our Presidents Are Different: For one, she was President Minority, being a woman U.S. President (who is also an alien). Also President Personable, as she meets with Kara repeatedly and speaks with her on quite friendly terms.
- The Pollyanna: She always sports a positive and hopeful demeanor.
- Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Well at least when masquerading as a human.
- The Reveal: Ms. Marsdin is herself an alien.
Portrayed By: Francoise Robertson
President Baker's Chief of Staff.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Goes along with every morally dubious thing Baker does, but she looks slightly unnerved when he deputizes the Children of Liberty.
- The Mole: Subverted. At first Kara and Lena seem to find proof that she is Lex's source inside the White House...but then it turns out President Baker himself is also part of the scheme.
Senator Miranda Crane
Portrayed By: Tawny Cypress
Voiced By: Irina Índigo (Latin-American Spanish dub)
A senator who uses her anti-alien beliefs to gain votes.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's quite rigid.
- Black Boss Lady: She's African-American note and is a Senator.
- Celebrity Paradox: Netflix was mentioned a lot during Season 1. Her actress plays a Recurring Character on House of Cards (US), which is part of the service's produced shows.
- Damsel in Distress: The White Martian kidnaps her, impersonates her, and then hid her underground.
- Fantastic Racism: She doesn't like aliens. Unsurprisingly, she and General Lane are revealed to be friends.
- HeelFace Turn: Changes her political views on aliens after Supergirl rescues her.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: Literally, she's a US Senator who has a prejudice against aliens until the end of her debut episode.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: After Supergirl saves her. When Kara was exposed to red kryponite and putting the city at risk, she points out that while Kara needed to be stopped she did not want her killed.
- Ship Tease: She seemed awfully fond of J'onn until she found out that he wasn't human.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: She just disappears after Season 1.
Portrayed By: Iddo Goldberg
The inventor of Red Tornado.
- Age Lift: He's usually depicted as a middle-aged man. Here, he's in his mid-thirties at most.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: Alex fights him while he's wearing a suit.
- Evil Brit: He's a Mad Scientist who speaks with British Accents. He is played by a British-Israeli actor.
- Mad Scientist: he snaps after General Lane fired him.
- Revenge: After being fired by General Lane when Red Tornado fails to live up to its promise, he sets Red Tornado on the general in retaliation.
- Would Hit a Girl: Programs Red Tornado to kill Supergirl and fights Alex in hand-to-hand combat without holding back.
Portrayed By: Iddo Goldberg
A military combat android created by T.O. Morrow. After it is defeated by Supergirl in a combat exercise, it goes rogue.
- Adaptational Villainy: In the comics, Red Tornado was a supervillain's android designed to fight the Justice League which became sentient and decided to become a hero. Here, Red Tornado never grows out of its "pawn of the supervillain" stage before Supergirl scraps it.
- Adaptive Ability: Each time it's defeated, it comes back stronger, though never quite strong enough to overpower Supergirl.
- A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Goes rogue after a test sortie against Supergirl. In actuality, Morrow is controlling it in order to get revenge on General Lane for pulling his funding after the robot lost the fight. While it does turn sentient at the last moment, it's quickly reduced to scrap by Supergirl's heat vision.
- Blow You Away: His primary power, naturally.
- Brought to You by the Letter "S": A "T" is emblazoned on Red Tornado's chest, as with the comics.
- Cape Busters: It was intended to kill Kryptonians. It doesn't quite measure up to that standard.
- Color Character: Red Tornado.
- Instant A.I.: Just Add Water!: It suddenly gains sentience when Morrow is killed, though it doesn't live long enough for that to matter.
- Kick the Dog: It sends Lucy flying with a tornado blast even though she was no threat to it.
- Killer Robot: An android designed for combat.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: It's mostly red with black accents.
- Silent Antagonist: It never speaks in its only appearance, but it does growl.
Portrayed By: Emma Caulfield
Voiced By: Ivett Toriz (Latin-American Spanish dub)
A stern, no holds barred FBI Agent dedicated to law enforcement following her father's violent murder.
- Action Girl: A requirement on being an FBI Agent, though she hasn't shown it yet.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: She's blond in the comics and most media. Here, she's an Aloof Dark-Haired Girl. Interestingly, her actress is a natural blonde.
- Alliterative Name: Cameron Chase.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's not very personable.
- Disappeared Dad: Her father was killed long ago, just like her comic backstory.
- FBI Agent: Her job.
- Ice Queen: She's very rigid.
- One-Shot Character: Never appeared again after her sole appearance in the series.
- Two First Names: Per the DC Comics norm.
General Sam Lane
Portrayed By: Glenn Morshower
Voiced By: Pedro D'Aguillón Jr. (Latin-American Spanish dub)
A general in U.S. Army Intelligence and the father of Lois and Lucy Lane.
- Absolute Xenophobe: In "Blood Bonds", he tells Astra that the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still gave him nightmares as a kid because it has an alien threatening the humans to stop their evil ways or else be destroyed. This led to his fear and hatred of aliens.
- And Starring: Is credited with a "Special Guest Star" citation.
- Celebrity Paradox:
- Dating What Daddy Hates: He doesn't like James. Not because he's friends with Superman and Supergirl but for having too much faith in the likes of them, and he believes James is holding his daughter back. Given that Clark and Lois are an item in this 'verse, he's probably not too fond of that either.
- Do Unto Others Before They Do Unto Us: As "Red Faced" goes on, it becomes increasingly obvious that this was his motive behind backing the Red Tornado program.
- Expy: He largely stands in for the comics character Wade Eiling, who's currently tied up in the Arrowverse.
- Fantastic Racism: The man is profoundly prejudiced against aliens, seeing no difference between Supergirl and the Fort Rozz escapees.
- Freudian Excuse: He might not be so anti-alien if his parents hadn't allowed him to see The Day the Earth Stood Still as a child.
- General Ripper: Seems intent with picking a fight with Kryptonians, which would be smart if the target of his ire wasn't Supergirl.
- Hypocrite: He calls James "self-righteous" for not having an alcoholic drink with dinner. But Lane himself is so staggeringly self-righteous that he believes he knows what's best for everyone and everything, and that anyone who disagrees with him (even his own daughter) is making a big mistake.
- Jerkass: The man is a complete and absolute asshole to everyone, with the sole exception of his daughter.
- Jerkass Has a Point: In "Blood Bonds", Kara pleads with him not to torture Astra for information, saying that the good guys are better than that. His response? "We are. They aren't." While he is unquestionably an asshole, he's probably correct that Astra's side would not have the same qualms about torture if the roles were reversed.
- Interservice Rivalry: If it were up to him the DEO would be disbanded and all its duties assumed by Army Intelligence.
- Never My Fault: Is extremely quick to blame both Supergirl and T.O. Morrow when Red Tornado goes rogue after being damaged, despite the fact that it was his idea to send the untested prototype up against Supergirl in the first place.
- Odd Name Out: He doesn't follow the Alliterative Family Theme Naming unlike his daughters, though it's possible that his wife also didn't follow(ed) it.
- The One Guy: The only male in the Lane household.
- Ungrateful Bastard: Doesn't thank Supergirl for saving him and Lucy.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Hasn't been mentioned despite being set-up as a major player during the Season 1 finale. He does appear through a phone call with J'onn in the Season 3 premiere.
Major Lucy Lane, JAGC
Portrayed By: Jenna Dewan Tatum
Voiced By: Adriana Núñez (Latin-American Spanish)
Lois Lanes younger sister and James Olsens ex-girlfriend.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Most comic versions of Lucy Lane have blond hair. Here she has dark brown hair.
- Adaptational Badass: This version's a Harvard-educated major in the US Army JAG Corps and more than capable of being badass.
- Adaptational Heroism: The comic book version of Lucy (to make a long story short) is Daddy's Little Villain and the General's personal Dragon. This version, even when she begins the season distrusting Kara, still gives her dad a What the Hell, Hero? moment when his hostility goes too far, and become a more relied on (and reliable) ally as the season goes on.
- Alliterative Family: With her sister Lois.
- Alliterative Name: Like her sister, one of the many L.L. who litters the Superman mythos.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Has an Ice Queen demeanor while in uniform.
- And Starring: Is credited with a "Special Guest Star" citation.
- Betty and Veronica: While seen by Kara as the Veronica in the Kara-James-Lucy love triangle, Lucy sees herself as the Betty in the same love triangle and Supergirl as the Veronica. Granted she didn't know that Kara was Supergirl at the time.
- Birds of a Feather: She and James are both Military Brats.
- Brainy Brunette: She has dark brown hair and is a whip-smart lawyer with a JD/MBA dual degree from Harvard.
- Celebrity Paradox: Kara mentions that she's a fan of *NSYNC. Her actress was previously a backup dancer of the group (and later its most popular member).
- Character Development: After Supergirl saved her and her dad, her attitude towards Supergirl changed. And she chose to stay in National City to help in her own way.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Lucy disappears between Seasons 1 and 2 with no explanation offered and no dialogue references made to her at all to explain her absence.
- Disproportionate Retribution: At first she resists helping Supergirl save Alex and J'onn from being sent off to a lab where she knows they'll get carved up like Christmas turkeys (and which she personally helped send them to) because she personally hates lies and deception, and J'onn and Alex lied by covering up his secret identity as an alien. Thankfully, Supergirl talks her out of this.
- Even the Girls Want Her: Kara expresses this opinion about her shortly after meeting her.
- Good-Looking Privates: She cuts an even more impressive figure when in uniform.
- Hazy Feel Turn: While never the big antagonist many of those she's worked for, like her father, have an open hostility to all aliens. Lucy has shown a few times she doesn't really share that sentiment, so it's no surprise when in episode 18 after Kara reveals her secret that she is convinced to help her.
- Hello, Attorney!: She's a military lawyer working for the Judge Advocate General's Corps. She also happens to be extremely hot.
- Innocently Insensitive: When she was Locked Out of the Loop, Lucy would voice her ill opinion of Supergirl to Kara's face.
- Majorly Awesome: She's more cooperative to Kara compared to her father and has been the only positively portrayed member of the U.S. Military on Earth-38 to datenote .
- Military Brat: She's the daughter of a General, per the norm.
- Renaissance Man: She's been a lawyer, an army major, a general counsel at a renowned media conglomerate, then a major again, and acting director of the DEO.
- Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: Despite feeling deceived by both Supergirl and J'onn, she helps Supergirl free J'onn and Alex from military custody, knowing the horrible fate that awaited them at Project Cadmus otherwise.
- Secret Keeper: Kara eventually reveals that she is Supergirl to Lucy.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Never mentioned in Season 2.
- Why Do You Keep Changing Jobs?: Starts off as an Army JAG officer, resigns and becomes a Catco Legal consultant, then quits and becomes a JAG officer, then after helping Supergirl ends up as the director of the DEO whith J'onn and Alex on the run.
- You Are in Command Now: After she helps J'onn and Alex escape from the military, J'onn makes sure a human he trusts is set up as the next director of the DEO.
Portrayed By: Ryan Williams
James Olsens father. He was a member of the U.S. Army Reserves who died during The Gulf War.
Portrayed By: Eddie McClintock
A colonel in U.S. Military Intelligence.
- Adaptational Villainy: In the comics a James Harper and his clone who has the same namenote were a hero named the Guardian.
- Decomposite Character: The other James with Olsen at the end is confirmed to be the Guardian.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He's a good friend of the real Hank Henshaw, and was not pleased when learns of what happened to him. He also cares very much about his family, especially his children.
- Fantastic Racism: He doesn't like aliens too.
- Good-Looking Privates: He's a Tall, Dark, and Snarky Marine Colonel.
- It's Personal: He was a good friend of the real Hank Henshaw. When J'onn told him the truth about his late friend, he got more pissed.
- Jedi Mind Trick: On the receiving end from J'onn, who psychically convinces him to leave Lucy in charge.
- Jerkass: He's very mean-spirited and quick to assume the worst of everyone.
- Related in the Adaptation: An interesting example. In the comics, he and Roy Harper are relatives. There is no mention of that here, with Roy being a (former) main character on a show officially set in an Alternate Universe, but it might still be possible with their respective counterparts on their Earths in case they do appear.
- One Steve Limit: With James Olsen. Good thing they both use Last-Name Basis.
- Semper Fi: He's first seen in Marine Corps dress blues.
- Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Stands 5'11 and is very rigid.
- Tyrant Takes the Helm: Takes over the DEO after J'onn was outed as an alien. Fortunately, the latter was able to Mind Control him to give the position to Lucy Lane.
Colonel Lauren Haley
Portrayed By: April Parker Jones
A United States Marine Corps officer who was appointed by President Baker to oversee the D.E.O..
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Blonde in the comic books.
- Adaptational Job Change: Her military branch was charged to Marine Corps in the show as opposed to Air Force like in the comics.
- Bad Boss: She subjects her D.E.O. subordinates to brutal interrogation to try and uncover Supergirl's identity, eventually resorting to using a telepathic alien creature to force them to be absolutely truthful.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Haley initially seems like a Reasonable Authority Figure, albeit rather zealous. At the end of her introduction episode, however, she makes it clear that she has no respect for J'onn, demonstrates Fantastic Racism, and becomes quite cold towards Alex when she expresses her own fondness for J'onn. "Suspicious Minds" flat out shatters whatever facade of decency she had; in the past she oversaw the torture of two Morae so they'd become the perfect government assassin. Later, she finds out Kara's secret and tries to blackmail her into a similar situation.
- Black Boss Lady: And not a positive example.
- By-the-Book Cop: Negative example. Haley insists that Alex should strictly follow the chain of command, even demanding salutes.
- Character Development: Her hostility towards aliens and Bad Boss tendencies lessen over time as President Baker's erratic decisions like launching an illegal Kill Sat behind the D.E.O.'s back and appointing Lockwood, Director of Alien Affairs deeply unnerve her and her priorities focus more to keeping the general populace — humans and aliens save from harm and to prevent bloodshed.
- Control Freak: Haley is quick to fear anything she (and by extension, the government, military, or the D.E.O.) doesn't control. When Supergirl becomes a free agent, Haley quickly comes to assume, against all rationality, that she is a threat to D.E.O. operations, believes that the President was wrong to dismiss her without a "contingency plan", and sets out to uncover her identity by any means necessary so as to get her back under the D.E.O.'s authority. When she actually does find out, Haley's response is to make it clear that if Kara refuses to follow her orders to the letter and down to the second, Haley will expose her identity and leave all of Kara's loved ones to the mercy of her enemies.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She has a daughter whom she care for very much, even leaving a conference early to help with a school project.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Hostile to aliens, she may be but she is a law-obeying soldier. To wit:
- Despite her own xenophobia regarding aliens, she's disgusted by the Children of Liberty and is very unnerved by the cult of personality trying to make a martyr out of Ben Lockwood.
- She's also disturbed by President Baker blatantly violating protocol by backing a secret satellite to destroy any alien aircraft behind her and the D.E.O.'s backs.
- In "Stand and Delivered" she orders Brainy to lead security for the aliens and alien activists marching against Lockwood to ensure their own safety from any violence that will inevitably breakout.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good:
- Haley assumes that the only reason that Supergirl would keep intervening in alien threats is to give the D.E.O. grief for no reason, instead of recognising her as a hero. Fantastic Racism is an element in this assumption (Supergirl being a powerful alien that Haley can't control rankles her beyond belief), but it still shows a surprising inability to grasp why Supergirl does what she does.
- She is absolutely baffled as to why Alex sees aliens as sentient beings worthy of compassion and respect, instead of nonhuman creatures to be tortured, conditioned or blackmailed into being Living Weapons.
- Evil Is Petty: After hearing that Alex is fond of and loyal to J'onn, Haley starts demanding the the D.E.O. Director salute her.
- Expy: She is very similar to Amanda Waller.
- Fantastic Racism: She has no respect for J'onn as the director of the D.E.O., viewing his leadership as perverting it's mission (she thinks the organization should capture aliens, rather than work with them). She only tolerates working with Supergirl because she sees her as a Living Weapon nothing else. This takes a darker turn when we find out that she oversaw the torture of baby Morae so they'd grow up to be the perfect assassins. She later tries to blackmail Supergirl into a similar situation, but it doesn't come to pass. But over the course of the season she's seen slowly growing out of the mindset, especially after seeing Baker and Lockwood abuse their power against aliens; the fact her daughter's favorite teacher is an alien too also helps.
- HeelFace Turn: Over the course of the series, she eventually softens up for good, culminating in her helping Alex and Kara against the corrupt government and giving a speech of gratitude towards Supergirl at the end of the season.
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Despite her antagonistic demeanor in her debut , she softened up just enough in subsequent episodes just enough to make it seemed like she wasn't that bad only for "Suspicious Minds" to clarify that she is just as xenophobic, paranoid, power hungry as she was when she was introduced, far more in fact than what the audience was initially led to believe. This gets eventually subverted.
- Knight Templar: She is willing to trigger an explosion that would kill dozens of innocent people rather than leave a Parasite-empowered Jensen on the loose.
- Lack of Empathy: For aliens, especially, but she has shown some signs of this where human lives are concerned as well, being willing to kill dozens of civilians to take out Jensen (although she at least claims to be glad that Alex managed to talk him down before this became necessary), and using Supergirl's secret identity in an attempt to blackmail her into submitting to Haley's absolute authority, threatening to leave Kara's friends and family to the mercy of Supergirl's many enemies if she refuses to comply. Haley's memory of the information is erased before she can follow through on this threat, but it's still an unsettling look at how little value Haley places on life compared to satisfying her own need for control over an alien.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: She learns Supergirl's identity and tries to blackmail into military service going so far as to threaten her friends and familiy if she doesn't comply. Luckily J'onn erases this from her mind.
- Moral Myopia: In Haley's eyes, aliens are not human, and therefore, they don't and shouldn't get the same treatment as human beings. This mindset allows her to feel fine with ordering intelligent aliens to be killed without mercy and abusing alien children into becoming Living Weapons for the government.
- Not So Different: Disturbingly she has a lot with common with Ben Lockwood and the Children of Liberty, the both see aliens as non-human beings who aren't worthy of being treated with respect or basic decency. There is one key difference however— Lockwood wants to see all aliens killed, Haley would rather blackmail or condition them to be government assets instead.
- Political Officer: She's sent to oversee the D.E.O after Alex disobeys a direct order from the President. Alex is still technically Director, but every decision she makes has to be rubber-stamped by Haley first.
- Race Lift: Caucasian in the comic books.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: After her first, negative impression, it seems like she will be heading down this route, as she actually acknowledges that her judgment of the Children of Liberty was false and silently compliments Alex for her disobedience. Later, subverted when she tries to blackmail Supergirl to be her personal Living Weapon threatening her friends and families to do so; J'onn wipes her mind before that can happen.
- Tyrant Takes the Helm: Doesn't seem like it at first, but it later becomes clear that she will run a tight regiment, enforcing her twisted definition of order at all costs. The idea of Supergirl working of her own initiative instead of under her own direct supervision, drives her absolutely crazy.
- Ungrateful Bastard: Supergirl saves her being killed from a Morae, whom she personally tortured as a child. Haley, then reveals she knows her secret, tells her her life as Kara Danvers is over and tries to blackmail her into military service even threatening her friends and family's safety to do so if she refused to comply.
- Would Hurt a Child: Shamelessly took part in the government's policy of using trauma to condition and control tender-age aliens. Haley "justifies" this by pointing out that the victims of her abuse aren't human.
