The Source has posted the first complete look at Captain Cold, as he appears in the New 52.
Of the redesigned Rogue, the Flash creative team of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato had this to say in a recent interview with IGN:
IGN: What plans do you have for Captain Cold and the rest of the Rogues?
Manapul:Captain Cold and the rest of the Rogues are currently broken up. In fact, they hate each other. In our second arc we catch up with Captain Cold and learn more about this dysfunctional family called The Rogues. Thematically, they take a similar journey as the Flash, and it will all come to a head in that arc.
Buccellato: They are going to TRY and kick The Flash’s butt all over Central City.
Manapul also had this to say, in an interview with CBR, about the new take on Cold and the Rogues:
Manapul: I love Captain Cold. To me, he is a real badass! And I think you’re going to see that, once we start our second arc. I also like characters like the Pied Piper, but our take on him is going to be different, he’s — well, I don’t want to reveal anything! But it’s going to be fun, because what you are going to see is, rather than a reintroduction of the Rogues, you’re going to see an evolution of them.
The “evolution” has been revealed to be an internalization of their powers, which is evident as well in the new image.
