AceShowbiz - "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" is adding a new major character for the upcoming third season. %cTala Ashe% ("American Odyssey") is announced to join the show as a series regular in the role of Zari Adrianna Tomaz. She's codenamed Isis, who was once Black Adam's wife, in the comics, but her televised version will be very different.
According to Deadline, Tomaz is a Muslim-American female from the year 2030. She lives a double life as a "grey hat hacktivist" to fight "humanity's fear, prejudice, and mistreatment of the planet" and doesn't realize she has superpowers derived from an ancient, mystical source. "So excited to join @TheCW_Legends!!" the actress gushed on Twitter.

"We're drawing on an established character who is not from the comics," showrunner Marc Guggenheim said back in March. "Let me be very clear: not original to the show but not from the comics and not from any of the other DC Arrowverse shows."
Season 3 will premiere this fall on The CW.
