The latest addition to the cast of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is Mr. Robot actress Stephanie Corneliussen, who will play Valentina Vostok – a variation on DC Comics villain, Negative Woman.
The comic book incarnation of this character possessed the ability to a project a “soul-self” that could fly, become intangible, and cause explosions, but we’ll have to wait and see if this TV-take follows suit in that regard.

Though she did start out as a villain, after she lost her powers, Vostok switched allegiances and began working for the U.S. Government in organizations such as Agency and Checkmate – and it sounds as if her small-screen counterpart could follow a similar path if this description accompanying TV Line’s report is anything to go by:
A gifted and beautiful Soviet physicist who will stop at nothing to defend her precious “Motherland.” When the Legends encounter her at the height of the Cold War, they suspect her of working with Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) on a secret weapon. Ray/The Atom (Brandon Routh) and Leonard/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) must vie for Valentina’s affection in an attempt to thaw her cold heart, and find out where her allegiance truly lies -— before she completes her project and potentially turns the tide of the Cold War.
Corneliussen has signed on to appear in multiple episodes, so expect Miss Vostok to either aid or hinder the team as they battle Savage through time. DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow will be with us midseason 2016.
