Morgan Kohan's 'Batwoman' character, Stephanie Brown, is from the comic books.

Morgan is joining Batwoman in the Season 2 episode, "I'll Give You a Clue." Those who read the DC Comics will recognize Morgan's character, Stephanie Brown aka Spoiler, as the daughter of the Arthur Brown/Cluemaster (who is played by Rick Miller on the show).

The Cluemaster is a villainous character who leaves, you guessed it, clues at every one of his crime scenes. Stephanie does not share her father's nefarious intentions, and she attempted to "spoil" his plans before he has the chance to execute them.

According to Entertainment Weekly, on the May 9 episode, Ryan, Sophie (Meagan Tandy), and Mary (Nicole Kang) are attempting to have a girls night out when they learn that the Cluemaster has been released from prison.

He begins to bother Sophie by leaving her dangerous clues, one of which involves his his daughter. Though Stephanie doesn't end up donning her Spoiler suit during the episode, the door is left open for her to return to the show in the future.  

After all, she quickly forms a romantic connection to Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson). She's linked to a different character, Tim Drake, in the comics, but he hasn't appeared on Batwoman (yet).

"We try to anchor the characters in what we know of them from the comics, but make them personal to our heroes — specifically Sophie and Luke," showrunner Caroline Dries said about bringing Stephanie and the Cluemaster back for Season 3.

Morgan's role on Batwoman is quite different from anything else she's starred in before. 

The actress is best known for playing Lillian Walsh on 'When Hope Calls.'

Before she was playing a superhero, Morgan starred as Lillian Walsh on the Hallmark show, When Hope Calls. The 2019 period piece drama centered around orphaned sisters Grace Bennett (Jocelyn Hudon) and Lillian, who reunite as adults after spending their childhoods apart.

Once the two are together again, they decide to open their own orphanage. 

The show was a spin-off of the popular Hallmark series, When Calls the Heart. It was axed after one season in 2019.

As for her notable TV roles, Morgan appeared on an episode of Murdoch Mysteries in 2017 and in three episodes of Ransom in 2018.
