“Shes not even acting, everything she said about the community came from her heart”
Via Screen Rant:
Nia Nal aka Dreamer, an original character from The CW’s Supergirl, just debuted in comic form in a new stunning preview. It sees Dreamer, played by Nicole Maines in the TV show, in action as she continues supering around National City. The Dreamer story, within the upcoming DC Pride anthology series, is written by Maines herself. DC Pride is an anthology series that will shine a light on DC’s roster of LGBTQIA+ characters, made by LGBTQIA+ creators. Along with Dreamer’s transition to the comics, other popular characters like DC’s newest Flash will be returning in their own stories.
“I love her so much, and this right here. This made me cry. Growing up there really wasn’t a role model in my experience who was trans, and to see Nia and know that for so many young people she can be that role model, she can be a beacon of visibility, it just makes me happy.”
Dreamer was introduced in Supergirl Season 4, she is the first transgender superhero on television. As an original creation from Supergirl, Nia has never been featured in any comic book. However, she is a relative to Nura Nal aka Dream Girl, a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes in the comics. With her family being linked to characters from DC Comics, it was only a matter of time before she would make the leap. With Supergirl ending, there has been an outcry for Nia Nal to continue past the show’s finale and this could be the conclusion that fans have been hoping for.
