With the new season of The Flash nearly upon us (or at least a slightly less unbearable distance away) we're beginning to get a much better idea of what season two of the wildly popular CW show will bring.

it seems we can expect to see more romance, more bromance, more pulse-pounding action and (hopefully) more super-intelligent gorillas. More than anything else, though, it seems that the season will be dominated by the arrival of a whole bunch of new speedsters - some good, and some far less so.

The latest news on that front?

Jesse Quick is Set to Arrive in Season Two

That's right - Jesse Chambers, aka the superhero Jesse Quick, is reportedly set to appear in The Flash's second season, played by actress Violett Beane:

Which, seeing as Jesse has a long history of involvement with The Flash over in the comics, makes a whole lot of sense. After all, while she's only been around since 1992, she's served not only had a fair few adventures with the scarlet speedster, but also served in the Teen Titans, JSA and JLA. What's more, both of her parents, Johnny Quick and Liberty Belle, were heroes back in the Golden Age - and having inherited both her father's super-speed and her mother's super-strength, Jesse's very much a (speed) force to be reckoned with.

How Will That Translate to the Show, Though?

Well, from the sounds of it...not exactly as it was in the comics. Y'see, TV Line is reporting that the new on-screen Jesse Quick will be:

"a brilliant but quirky college student who gets caught up in the battle between The Flash and Season 2 Big Bad (the not-yet-cast) Zoom."

Which, on the face of it, isn't too dissimilar to the comic-book version of the hero - except, of course, that the on-page Jesse was given her speed-powers by her father (it involves reciting a specific formula), whereas from the sounds of that character description, there's a good chance we'll see the "brilliant" CW Jesse develop her super-speed herself.

Which might just suggest we're set to see her join The Flash's science gang...

Or, y'know, turn out to be yet another love-interest:

Barry does have a thing for "brilliant but quirky" women, after all...

What do you reckon, though?
