First up, we have a brand new DC Collectibles 6″ action figure line called DC Icons. Not only will the series be featuring characters and designs from the New 52 but they will also be mining the classics; In the second wave, due out in Late 2015/Early 2016 we can expect to find Barry Allen circa the Crisis on Infinite Earths and featuring a brand new Cosmic Treadmill!
This episode gives us the return of Captain Cold and the first Rogues mini-team-up of the series, as Heat Wave joins Len (in an interesting twist, these two are played by the same actors who played the brothers in “Prison Break”). Captain Cold wants to draw out and eliminate the Flash, knowing that Flash remains the one force who can stop his criminal plans. Meanwhile, Barry continues his training in an effort to get “up to speed” to challenge the Reverse Flash, and Iris prepares to move in with Eddie. All this, and more, in Episode 110 of THE FLASH!

“Cold” is a running theme throughout this show, for reasons that go beyond the appearance of Leonard Snart. More than one relationship needs a serious thaw as The Flash gets ready to fight his first non-meta supervillain (and, in this spirit of full disclosure, my favorite Rogue), Captain Cold!
