Although there is no confirmation from Warners, new speculation surrounds the appearance of DC Comics' character 'Mercy Graves' in director Zack Snyder's developing "Man Of Steel" sequel, with the working title "Batman/Superman' .
So who is Mercy Graves and what is her relationship with 'Lex Luthor' ?
'Mercedes "Mercy" Graves' debuted in 1996 on "Superman: The Animated Series" as the bodyguard/personal assistant of Superman's archenemy, Lex Luthor.
Originally the leader of a gang of female thieves, Luthor was impressed by her mixture of ruthlessness and street savvy, offering her a job, taking her in, cleaning her up and making her his 'right-hand', entrusting her with his personal security and dirty work.
An excellent hand-to-hand combatant, Mercy uses a rough, street-form of kickboxing as her preferred form of attack. She is also an expert with most forms of handheld weapons. Her habitual dress is a chauffeur's uniform with a very short skirt, a chauffeur's cap, nylons and high heeled boots.
