‘Supergirl’: Thomas Lennon To Recur As Mxyzptlk In CW Series
Exclusive: The magical menace called Mxyzptlk is returning to National City. Thomas Lennon (The State) is set to recur as the mercurial trickster in the fifth season of the CW’s Supergirl.

Mxyzptlk, aka “Mxy,” is the impish, reality-bending trickster from the 5th Dimension, who previously visited National City to woo Kara Danvers, aka Supergirl, but created chaos in the process. British actor Peter Gadiot portrayed Mxyzptlk for that two-part Season 2 adventure, but the transition to Lennon is smoothed by the character’s handy reputation as a shape-shifter with an unpredictable nature.

Mxyzptlk (it’s pronounced “miks-yez-pit-əl-ik”) has a history of mischief dating back to 1944 in the pages of DC Comics, where the most familiar version of the character is as an eccentric, levitating imp with a purple-and-orange ensemble and matching bowler. Often portrayed as an exasperating pest to Superman, Mxyzptlk is daft but also dangerous given the Kryptonian vulnerability to magic.
