Eobard Thawne has decided to build his own “family”. With the help of this new “Legion of Zoom”, Thawne hopes to beat the Flash once and for all. Last issue, we saw Thawne putting the band together. This issue they unleash…complete chaos! This promises to be an exceptional arc – wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!
The Speed Force isn’t dead…but it IS out of control. Barry, Wallace and Avery have found a surprising ally in Lisa Snart, but can she help a Flash team that is afraid to use their speed? Things are looking bleak in the Cold Kingdom, but even if the Flashes win the world is still set to end soon. What could possibly give them any hope? Wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!
How much worse could it get? Lex Luthor’s plan is in full effect and “the end of the world(s) as we know it” (with apologies to R.E.M.) is just a few days away. Len Snart is now “King” Cold and in charge of Central City. His former partners now have their own chunks of real estate to rule over, but that doesn’t seem to bother the King. The Speed Force is…dead? Wallace and Avery can’t access it right now, and Barry has a dampening collar on so…
Oh, forgot. Flash is now the prisoner of King Cold at the newly renamed Ice Heights. He’s chained to the wall so that Snart can constantly torture him with the fact that he’s won. Is there any hope left? Wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!
The Flash has faced his Rogues Gallery countless times over the years, since the early Silver Age to today, and there have always been two things you could count on. First, the Rogues have a code…and second, the Flash always wins even if they team up against him. It’s always worked…for the Flash. But, now the Rogues appear to have wised up, and this group of blue-collar bad guys may finally have the upper hand. Last issue, the Flash was tricked into going miles away while the Rogues struck in Central City. Now, what can our Scarlet Speedster do in the aftermath? That’s where we pick up with issue #16 of THE FLASH! Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
Via THR: Michael Ironside will appear as Lewis Snart, the “estranged, abusive father” of Leonard and Lisa Snart, a.k.a. Captain Cold and Golden Glider.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, as Lewis is described as cold-blooded, ruthless career criminal. Recently released from prison, he returns to Central City with a plan that will endanger both of his children.
Ironside will appear in the third episode of The Flash season two, “Family of Rogues,” along with Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Glider (Peyton List).
Now I’m trying to remember if the Snarts’ father had a canonical first name in the comics. All I remember is a few Flashbacks and the horribly miscalculated hostage-taking attempt in Final Crisis: Rogues Revenge.
