Season 2 of Gotham is about to get more menacing as they include another villain to fight the already outmatched Detective James Gordon. Bridgit Pike, a.k.a. Firefly, will join the ranks of Oswald Cobblepot and other villains as they wreak havoc in the grimy city of Gotham.

Gotham Season 2 Cast: Michelle Veintimilla
Another addition to the cast of Gotham has been made as actress Michelle Veintimilla joins as the vengeful Bridgit Pike, known to the supervillain world as Firefly, according to TVLine. Veintimilla has performed shows in Broadway such as the younger version of Chita Rivera?s character in ?The Visit? and was previously on Lifetime?s show ?Those Who Kill,? a serial killer-hunting tv series, shared by TVLine.
Gotham adds yet another unusual twist as they create Firefly?s character as a female criminal, according to TVLine. Through the years, Firefly has cycled through some male changes in the DC Universe such as Garfield Lynns, who was a special effects expert introduced in 1952, and Ted Carson, an heir who turns to crime when he gambles away his fortune, posted by Blastr. So Firefly changing into a female will be a new step for the DC universe.
Gotham?s season 2 adding a female villain may be of no surprise because of the recent of Fish Mooney, played by Jada Pinkett-Smith, shared by Blastr. So adding some female feistiness to the show should definitely give Gotham the edge it needs. But unfortunately, Firefly will only appear in two episodes.
Here?s a look at the story of Firefly, from IGN.com:
?Enslaved by her brothers, a notorious gang of arsonists, Bridgit Pike is forced into the family business. When she catches the eye of Selina Kyle, the young Cat Woman and the soon-to-be Firefly team up to put Bridgit?s firestarting skills to good use. But after a deadly encounter with the Pike Brothers, the meek Cinderella is transformed into a vengeful supervillain, hell bent on destroying those who have wronged her.?
