“Who doesn’t want to be a superhero?”
Those are the words of brunette siren Elise Gatien who played Mia Dearden on ‘Smallville’.
Though comic-book character Speedy is not the only time she’s flexed her caped-crusader muscles, Gatien admits she’s drawn to the world of spandex and paranormal mystery.
