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!
The Flash TV show returns tonight, and it’s double trouble for the Flash with Captain Cold and Heat Wave!
DC adds three more Silver Age issues from 1962 to their digital backlist (ComiXology and other platforms) on Wednesday: The Flash #131, 132 and #133. Stories include a team-up with Green Lantern and the infamous Abra Kadabra story, “Plight of the Puppet-Flash”
Captain Cold debuts in episode four, and is played by Wenworth Miller. Amusingly, the two actors last worked together on the show Prison Break, where they played brothers…appropriate given the almost sibling rivalry that Heat Wave and Captain Cold tend to display. (via Flash TV News)
So a couple days ago Wizkids announced via ICV2 their very first exclusively Flash-themed HeroClix set. The Flash is scheduled for release in the Fall and Wizkids is going all out for this set. Not only will we be getting a standard 68 piece set, we can also look forward to a 24 piece Primer Gravity Feed set featuring rare and unique sculpts (kind of a sneak peek/sampler) and a 6 piece Fast Forces set spotlighting the Rogues to kick things off. Take a look after the jump.
Newsarama has posted a second part to their recent “Going West” interview with Flash team of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato. This time around, the duo discuss their plans for Gorilla Warfare and beyond, including what is in store for the Rogues and the tragic nature of the new Grodd.
Follow the jump for more on each of the Rogues, what drives them and the story behind some of the changes to Flash’s gallery of super-villains.
