The Flash has quickly become one of the most popular shows on television and a flagship series for The CW. Now that we are through with the second season of the show, we have met a great deal of classic members of Flash's rogues gallery, but one villain has remained notably absent is Mirror Master.
We already know that the villain could potentially appear in The Flash Season 3, and that would bring some major drama to the TV show if he were brought on board.
About Mirror Master
For those that aren't familiar with the comics, there are two main identities of Mirror Master — Sam Scudder and Evan McCulloch. I'd like to focus more on Sam Scudder, though. Sam was a convict working at a mirror factory when a chemical was accidentally mixed in to the mirror. He noticed special properties in the mirror, and eventually would begin to develop mirrors that had all kinds of effects. Of course he would go on to call himself mirror master, and also discovered the "Mirror World" while escaping prison.
Could Mirror Master Be the 'Big Bad' of Season 3?
As most people know The Flash Seasons 1 and 2 have both had "big bads" in the form of other speedsters — Reverse Flash and Zoom. But Season 3 could use a nice change of pace courtesy of Mirror Master. He may not be bent on destroying earths like Zoom, but he could still want to destroy Flash, just like Reverse Flash tried to do in Season 1. We could see multiple arcs involving the Mirror Dimension, and perhaps seeing someone (cough cough Wally West cough cough) getting trapped there, with Barry being forced to enter to save him. Obviously he may feel like a downgrade compared to Zoom, but he could bring something completely new to the table, and really give Flash a run for his money.
Again, most comic readers know that Mirror Master is a major part of The Rogues, a group of Flash villains including Captain Cold, Heatwave, Weather Wizard and a few others. Of course this shouldn't just be ignored, and instead of having just a singular big bad for Season 3, The Rogues — this time led by Mirror Master — could be a collective big bad, especially since Captain Cold and Heatwave will still be time traveling for what will probably be the duration of the season.
Do you think Mirror Master and The Rogues would make a good big bad for Season 3? Do you think they should keep him from the screen this season? Let me know in the comments!
