Nicole Maines, who played Nia Nal, aka Dreamer, on Supergirl, is writing a new ongoing Suicide Squad comic series for DC, and her character from the CW show will be part of the latest Task Force X roster.

Suicide Squad: Dream Team will pick up in the aftermath of the current Beast World crossover, with Amanda Waller attempting to consolidate power by spearheading a new version of the mercenary team that hinges on Dreamer's precognitive abilities. Harley Quinn, Black Alice, Bizarro, Clock King and Deadeye round out the squad.

The creative team also includes Freedom Fighters artist Eddy Barrows and inker Eber Ferreira.

"I'm really excited to be working with Eddy and Eber to bring Dreamer into this pivotal time in the DC Universe,” said Maines in DC's press release. “This is a very different space from what she’s used to, and where we’re used to seeing her; dealing with Amanda Waller and this new Suicide Squad is going to force her to decide what kind of hero she wants to be, and what she is willing to sacrifice to save the future.”

Check out some cover art at the link below.

"To Amanda Waller, metahumans are the greatest threat to world safety, and she isn't above ruthlessly using them to solve that problem. Waller sees Dreamer, DC's precog/dream-walking Super Hero, as a key piece in eliminating that threat, recruiting her for this latest version of the Suicide Squad, complete with some of the most dangerous Super-Villains the DC Universe has to offer: Harley Quinn, Bizarro, Clock King, Black Alice, and Deadeye."

Suicide Squad: Dream Team #1 will be released in print and digitally on March 12, 2024. The issue features a main cover by series artists Barrows and Ferreira (also available as a foil variant cover), with additional variant covers by Riccardo Federici, Sweeney Boo, and Gleb Melnikov.

This is pretty cool, i love when actors write for their characters for me it shows a genuine interest and love of the lore and medium.

When she was first introduced she was a bit annoying, but she got better over the course of season 4.

dont really remember her doing anything note worthy in season 5 and 6 but that might have to do with the show just becoming straight up bland.

Give her a new costume. Translating a tv show costume to comics straight up just looks bland. need to either simplify things or do a complete new look

Live action domino masks are terrible. Exception was the Comedian.

That's cool, though the Suicide Squad has been in major need of a real shake-up for ages now. There's some interesting choice here like Deadeye and Clock King (who I'm guessing will be their guy in a chair) but given Harley's continuous exploits outside its pages it makes increasingly less sense that she's still part of the line up with a bomb on her neck. It's the Suicide Squad, get some more C-D listers in there.
What are Black Alice and Bizarro doing there? It's a small-scale team, giving it some heavies like them never works.

I think every chick on CW should write a comic.

Usually these "actors writing comics" things are awful. Heck, even a good chunk (not all) TV and film writers make really bad and /or boring comicbooks. Nothing against her as a person, if its actually good I might look at it, even if i generally avoid DCs main continuity.
