During the Supergirl panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that Peter Facinelli is joining the cast as Maxwell Lord.

As fans will know, Maxwell Lord has quite a storied history in DC Comics continuity. Sometimes a villain, sometimes a hero and sometimes a little of both Lord has been written both with and without super powers. He’s also been involved with the Justice League and played a role in the formation of the Justice League International. On CBS’s new series, Lord is a green tech billionaire who enjoys a friendly rivalry with Cat Grant and a fascination with National City’s newest arrival — Supergirl.
