Character Bio

Hank Henshaw photo
Hank Henshaw is a former CIA agent and current head of the DEO, who goes on high alert when Supergirl reveals herself, worried that her otherworldly abilities pose a threat to humankind. However, the "real" Henshaw died with Jeremiah Danvers in Peru while hunting the alien J'onn J'onzz. After Henshaw died, the 317 year old J'onzz, who has shape-shifting abilities, took Henshaw's likeness in order to reform the DEO from within as well as to watch over Alex and Kara.

The evolution of Henshaw was discussed during the filming of the pilot, with the executive producers jokingly saying that Harewood would be a good actor to play the Martian Manhunter in a potential television series, to which DC Comics' Geoff Johns asked why it could not be done in Supergirl. Harewood reflected that he had difficulty "find[ing] an angle to play Hank Henshaw" in the pilot, and became excited when he was told about the change to his character's backstory.
