Legends Of Tomorrow: Doom Patrol’s Valentina Vostok Is On the Way


When DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs later this season, it will get some help from the hottest show from Summer 2015. By that I mean USA’s Mr. Robot, whose Stephanie Corneliussen has been cast as a character longtime DC Comics readers should remember.

TVLine broke the news that Corneliussen will play Valentina Vostok, otherwise known as Negative Woman from the second version of the Doom Patrol. In the comics, Vostok was a Soviet military officer who crashed while trying to defect to the U.S. She did so at the exact same location where the original Doom Patrol vanished (because comics) and ended up inheriting the powers of the supposedly dead Negative Man, becoming the Negative Woman. Though she’d later lose her radiation-based powers, Vostok remained a part of the DC Universe in multiple comics as recent as Blackest Night.

On Legends of Tomorrow, the team will encounter Vostok during one of its jaunts into the past, and she’ll be a scientist who might be a lot more loyal to her home country. Here’s a description of how the Legends will interact with her from TVLine:

"When the Legends encounter her at the height of the Cold War, they suspect her of working with Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) on a secret weapon. Ray/The Atom (Brandon Routh) and Leonard/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) must vie for Valentina’s affection in an attempt to thaw her cold heart, and find out where her allegiance truly lies -— before she completes her project and potentially turns the tide of the Cold War."

No mention of whether we’ll see her sporting any super powers, though in the Arrow-verse, it’s always possible. Look for Corneliussen as Vostok sometime in 2016.
