As we approach the Fall Premiere Season, we are hearing casting news and plot line ideas flying around. With that being said, here is what we know:
Now as we have found out the above, we can only speculate on what is next. With that being said, here is a list of 10 DC Comics villains that would fit into the Flarrowverse!
1. Killer Frost (Louise Lincoln)
As we have already seen a version of the character, it would go without saying that we can see the character but in more than one way. As I am partial to Caitlin Snow being her perky and team Flash life-saving self, why not see a new version!
I feel that Louise Lincoln would fit in nicely with the Rogues on The Flash and would be a good addition to a future version of The Legion of Doom against Firestorm on DC's Legends of Tomorrow!
She would also be a great addition to the Suicide Squad (if they ever bring it back into play on Arrow!)
2. Abra Kadabra
This one is interesting. If you look at the original roster of Flash rogues, we have already seen Captain Cold, Heat Wave, Golden Glider, Gorilla Grodd, The Pied Piper, Weather Wizard, The Trickster and Captain Boomerang. We have already seen castings for Mirror Master and the Top. By simple process of elimination, we have all the rogues but one: Abra Kadabra.
For those who don't know, Abra Kadabra is from the 64th century. In his time, magic is obsolete because science has progressed so far. As Abra gets exiled back in time, he decides to become Abra and use his knowledge to accomplish the impossible. While there is more to his background (such as the fact that he sold his soul to the demon Neron in exchange for true magical powers), he would be a cool villain on The Flash! At the same time, he can be introduced via DC's Legends of Tomorrow!
As some may know from Justice League or Justice League: Unlimited, the Shade was portrayed as a villain. In the early days, he may of been viewed as such. In his first story, he kidnaps retired Starman (Ted Knight) on the orders of the Mist.
Now as we know from the 22nd episode of Season 1, Mist owes a favor to Leonard Snart which could be used to up the ante between Captain Cold and Mirror Master.
With that being said, I'm sure we can all agree that a villain turned hero would be a solid win for team Flash! Naturally, this villain would fit in well into a story on The Flash!
4. Kryptonite Man
We have seen three new Flash villain ideas, what about DC's Legends of Tomorrow or Supergirl? How about Kryptonite Man!
A scientist by the name of K. Russell Abernathy was experimenting on Kryptonite to develop a new energy source. When the experiment exploded, Abernathy's body was infused with kryptonite radiation. Abernathy then tried to prove his energy theories. to do so, he goes on a misguided violent rampage. He is eventually subdued and imprisoned at Stryker's Island.
With Arrow going back to basics, what better villain than a martial arts master and highly skilled assassin! Natas (Satan backwards) has an ongoing vendetta with Oliver as well as his team. While some may think that Deathstroke was enough, we need to see more of those types of characters to bring Arrow back to it's fighting roots. What do you think? Comment Below!
6. Hyena (Summer Day)
Summer Day, known as the first Hyena, joined the Peace Corps as a result of some issues with her father. While working for the Peace Corps in Africa, she was infected when she went to help a wounded tribal warrior outside her tent. The warrior bit her then turned into a were-hyena. Before she knew it, she was infected with the virus and she returned to America.
Firestorm had multiple encounters with Hyena before figuring out her true identity. While she is primarily a Firestorm villain, he story could fit in with The Flash as well! Alternatively, it would be nice to see her on DC's Legends of Tomorrow!
7. Rex Hunter
Originally named Jason Goldstein, Jason tracked down Rip Hunter and wished to join the Time Master. Jason then adopted the name Rex Hunter!
Before he could join, Rip kicked him to the curb as Rex had taken a more proactive approach instead of protecting the timeline. By proactive, he took many actions to better the timeline, one of which involved pushing a 10-year-old Lex Luthor in front of a train. Naturally, Rip stopped him. Out of revenge, Rex now tries to get back at Rip by way of his friends. As an example, he traveled back in time and killed Bonnie Baxter (another Time Master).
As we know from the end of the first season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, the Time Masters no longer exist. However, we know that Rip was a Time Master for a period of time prior to the first season. In that time, his original interactions with Rex may have occurred.
There is an infinite number of possibilities around what villains we might see in the Arrow or the Flarrowverse.
In this article, I tried to identify villains that would best fit into the current multiverse that has been established.
