Scorcher is a villain in the second season of Supergirl.
Scorcher is an Infernian extremist who wants to assassinate the president of the United States for intending to sign an act allowing for aliens to live on Earth. Scorcher sees this as way to regulate and registrate aliens.
She was portrayed by Nadine Crocker.
When she learns that the President intends to sign the alien embassy act, allowing aliens to live side by side with humans, Scorcher sees it as a hidden attempt of registration. Because of that, she tries to kill the president multiple times when she comes to National City, once during her arrival at the airport and again during the actual signing of the legislation. Both times, her assassination attempts are foiled by Supergirl. However, during the second attempt, Supergirl can actually identify her. Scorcher eventually flees with the human Maggie Sawyer.
She brings Maggie to her hideout where she mocks Maggie for helping the alien community in National City. While she does so, Supergirl and Alex arrive. While Supergirl distracts Scorcher, Alex frees Maggie. Although Supergirl manages to freeze Scorcher with her breath, Scorcher ignites herself and breaks free of the ice. She continues attacking Kara with her fire powers but eventually, Kara flies around Scorcher so fast that the wind extinguishes her. The weakened Scorcher falls to the ground and is knocked out by Maggie with a metal pipe.
