    I hope they somehow incorporate Gingold into Ralph’s origin. Like maybe he was drinking it when he somehow got powers and suddenly has the ability to become like liquid (stretch). That would be neat. Or maybe just have him drink it as an any day beverage. I also hope they introduce Sue although that’s not likely.

      That’d be awesome! But I’m guessing his powers will be tied in with the particle accelerator to some extent, particularly because Wellsobard name-dropped Ralph in first season as someone who’d died in the accident. We’ll see, I guess. I do wish the CWverse would embrace some of the weirder stuff in the DCU, but considering I still see people complaining about the “stupidity” of names like Leonard Snart and Abra Kadabra or references to the Philosopher’s Stone, maybe it’s understandable. There are a lot of newcomers to the show who’ve never read the comics at all and seem to have no interest in ever doing so.
