In the Supergirl episode “Fallout,” while Alex (Chyler Leigh) takes control at the DEO, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) sets out to capture Mercy Graves. Back at CatCo, Kara decides to write an investigative story on Mercy and asks Lena (Katie McGrath) if she can interview her as Mercy has ties to the Luthors. In the DC Comics world, Mercy is the personal assistant and bodyguard of Lex Luthor. In the 2016 live-action film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice starring Ben Affleck and Amy Adams, Mercy was portrayed by Tao Okamoto. On Supergirl, Mercy Graves is portrayed by Rhona Mitra.
