Well, with the accidental airing of the episode, "Targets," as well as its screening at San Diego Comic Con 2011, I suppose it's okay to post the design for Lex Luthor's bodyguard, Mercy Graves. I got a kick out Ms. Graves, as originally designed for Bruce Timm's animated Batman series. For me, she shined best in the SUPERMAN/BATMAN movie, where she went toe-to-toe with The Joker's moll, Harley Quinn. Apparently, this new version of the character has more to her than meets the eye, showcasing a mechanical arm, equipped with deadly weaponry. I designed her to be beautiful, and sexy, but with a decided edge. Here, with my own color selections, I gave her jacket dark lapels to distinguish the outfit from an ordinary (albeit risqué) business suit, and suggest her service also as Luthor's chauffeur.
Thanks for viewing!

Well, better design and performance than the Joker that's for sure.
I still don't know about Mercy though. In some ways I wonder why they just didn't turn her to a cyborg to begin with or something if she was ever made to essentially hold her on against some superhero. Well in any case, I won't lose a day's sleep over it unlike other changes I've seen of late.
One comic version of Mercy has superstrength derived from empowerment by the Greek gods.
As for Mercy, so far, all that has been revealed is that she has a weaponized cybernetic arm. This makes her a cyborg, not a robot.
Please keep in mind that the stories in YOUNG JUSTICE take place on an alternate Earth, so, much of what happens is not bound by the familiar continuity of the comic books.
