Background information[]

  • Lumbly was born in Minnesota to Jamaican immigrants. He attended and graduated from Macalester College with a degree in English. After a couple of jobs in journalism, he moved to San Francisco to continue his work for the Associated Press. He moved into acting shortly after playing in productions of Athol Fugard's "Sizwe Bansi is Dead" and "The Island."
  • His acting career continued in Los Angeles where he was able to get work in television, specifically as Detective Marcus Petrie on Cagney and Lacey (1981). His work continued with many Danny Glover-produced projects for television.
  • He is probably best known for his regular role as Marcus Dixon on Alias, which led to Andrea Romano attempting to get Alias costar Victor Garber to appear on Justice League as it would be interesting to have them work together. Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts prevented this from happening and Garber did not get his voice acting debut until Green Lantern: First Flight. Carl's other television work includes appearing in the biopic of Little Richard (2000), Battlestar Galactica (2004), and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2021). Lumbly has earned several awards and nominations for his work.
  • Lumbly has also played members of J'onn's family in other DC properties such as M'yrnn J'onzz in Supergirl (2015 series) and M’aatt M’orzz in Young Justice: Phantoms (2021).
