Annie Sturphausen Peacemaker character explored

Crystal Mudry plays the role of Annie Sturphausen in Peacemaker. She is a Butterfly who poses a dangerous threat to the world. In Episode 1, after Harcourt rejects Peacemaker’s, the superhero meets Sturphausen. They become affiliated right away and begin to celebrate his release from prison. It seems as though it is love at first sight until Peacemaker is so rudely interrupted. 

It was all going so well, he had put on one of her records and Peacemaker proceeded to dance around. However, Annie then charges toward him with a knife attempting to kill him. She successfully stabs him a few times until he realises that she is a metahuman.

After diving out of the window Chris wears his helmet which projects a deadly powerful light, meaning that Sturphausen ultimately doesn’t survive the fight.

Crystal Murdy is working alongside some mega-stars. With a recurring cast riddled with stars such as John Cena as Christopher Smith (Peacemaker), Robert Patrick as Auggie Smith (aka White Dragon), Freddie Stroma as Adrian Chase (Vigilante), Jennifer Holland as Emilia Harcourt, Chukwudi Iwuji as Clemson Murn, Danielle Brooks as Leota Adebayo, and Steve Agee as John Economos.
