As the season moves closer, we keep getting more and more news. As you see in the trailer, many people are going to spill through from Earth 2 or other Earths. We know Jay Garrick is from Earth 2 and one of the first to come through. In the trailer we also see Atom Smasher, normally a good guy, who for a brief moment turned bad. It seems we will see the villain in him. He will be played by former WWE Superstar Adam "Edge" Copeland.
Next to the cast we will be seeing Jesse Quick, a member of the quick family who knows the mathematical equation to the Speed Force. She is the daughter of Liberty Bell and John Quick. She learns the formula from her father. Seems like a lot of this is coming from the Wally West age of Flash and less from the Barry Alan age. But as discussed in my previous article, they are pulling from the New 52.
The next person coming into the show is Zoom. Now some comic fans have been confused on all this. Technically Wells was Professor Zoom, not the reverse Flash in the comics. So who is Zoom? Well Zoom was Hunter Zolomon, who will be voiced by Tony Todd. Which I think will be awesome but we have yet to see who will be playing Zoom. Who is Hunter though? Well he was Wally's friend who got injured and asked Wally to go back in time and fix it. Wally said he could not so Hunter tried getting powers and he then spent his life trying to make Wally a better Flash by terrorizing him. In the picture below, he goes to kill Wally's wife to make Wally concentrate on being a better Flash and ends up killing their unborn baby. It was a horrible experience that touched Flash readers everywhere.
They also have Harrison Wells returning and for a while we were wondering how? Well look no further! A statement was made that;
"Harrison Wells will be back, but he's going to be a very different Harrison Wells than we've seen before," Stanton tells TV Line. "We've got other worlds. We've got other timelines. All I'm going to say is he's from one of those places.”
Which means we may have a good Harrison who is genuinely out to help Barry or we have another Reverse Flash. Either way, it looks for great TV.
Now what is with all the blue streak that is running? Is that Zoom? Jay? Quick? Who? Can't wait to find out.
