Harrison Wells Dropped A Lot Of DC Comics Names Tonight

Nuklon, Fire, Damage, Elongated Man, Amazing-Man? Just another day at the office for the Flash writers.

Published

There was a scene in tonight’s episode of The Flash, titled “Power Outage,” where Harrison Wells mentioned the names of several people who died as a result of the particle accelerator explosion.

One of those names, Ronnie Raymond, was Caitlin’s fiancee seen in the third episode, and we know that’s the alter ego of Firestorm from DC Comics. We also know that the actor playing Ronnie, Robbie Amell, will be back soon, so we know that person lived, at least.

But who were the other names Wells mentioned?

TeaserJake Davenport and Daria Kim are, of course, the friends of Farooq’s. Beyond that, we had these people:

Ralph Dibny – In the comics, Ralph Dibny is a detective with stretching abilities, the result of drinking a concoction called “Gingold.” Ralph in the comics was a long-time member of the Justice League of America as the Elongated Man.

Will Everett – Retroactively one of the first Black super-heroes in All-Star Squadron, Will Everett’s alter ego was as the “Amazing Man.” His powers were mostly energy-based. A grandson of the original Amazing Man, Will Everett III, appeared in DC’s Extreme Justice comic book.

(The character “Will Everett” was named after Bill Everett, creator of many comics including Marvel Comics’ Sub-Mariner. He also created a different character named Amazing-Man in the 1940s.)

9539Al Rothstein – Al Rothstein was best known by two different code-names – Nuklon and, in Geoff Johns’ run on JSA, Atom-Smasher. His powers included growth, increased strength, stamina, speed and durability. He was the godson of the original Atom, Al Pratt, and his grandfather was a “reluctant supervillain” named Cyclotron.

Bea Da Costa – Beatriz Da Costa is best known for her time in the Keith Giffen era Justice League International as “Fire.” Her powers involved having a green flame. The character also appeared in the notoriously bad 1997 CBS Justice League TV pilot.

Damage_Vol_1_12Grant Emerson – This character is one of the more contemporary characters from the DC roster, having first appeared around the time of Zero Hour in 1994. As Damage, Grant’s powers included enhanced strength, durability, speed, reflexes, power discharge, and explosions. Wikipedia notes he is the son of the previously mentioned Al Pratt, but we remember the parentage storyline being a bit more complicated than that.

…and of course we know who Ronnie Raymond is.

Will we see any of these people on Flash? We can hope so! In the meantime, these Easter eggs were fun hints from the Flash writing team, and are greatly appreciated.

Flash Season 7: First Five Episode Titles Revealed

Published

The titles for the first five episodes of The Flash Season 7 have made their way on to the Internet, and while they’re always subject to change prior to an official press release from The CW, these titles could be hints as to what is coming in our future.

The seventh season of The Flash is currently scheduled to premiere February 23, 2021 on The CW; most of the first episode of the season, “All’s Well That Ends Wells,” was shot prior to this year’s COVID-19 pandemic. It has been speculated by some like Pagey that the third episode back, “Mother,” is the conclusion of the Mirror Master storyline.

Here’s the current schedule, as always subject to change:

Episode #7.1: “All’s Well That Ends Wells” (2/23/21)
Episode #7.2: “The Speed of Thought” (3/2/21)
Episode #7.3: “Mother” (3/9/21)
Episode #7.4: “Central City Strong” (3/16/21)
Episode #7.5: “Fear Me” (3/23/21)

Report: The Flash Temporarily Pauses Production

Deadline is reporting that The Flash has temporarily paused production due to a positive COVID-19 test.

Deadline is reporting that The Flash production in Vancouver has temporarily paused after someone working on the series has tested positive for COVID-19. Here’s what they had to say about what has happened:

“The asymptomatic diagnosis was confirmed through the rigorous testing protocols implemented by The Flash studio Warner Bros. TV for all of its production employees. Out of an abundance of caution, production on The Flash has been temporarily suspended and contact tracing has been initiated. According to sources, the studio is currently evaluating adjustments to the production schedule in order to resume filming without the affected employee and potential close contacts, who are self-isolating.”

The Deadline piece also noted that The Flash isn’t the only show to shut down production for this reason. Each series that has returned to production has implemented strong safety protocols which involve their casts and crews frequently testing. It is our hope that this team member remains asymptomatic and that everyone stays safe and healthy on The Flash and every other production that has resumed.

The Flash Season 7 is scheduled to premiere February 23 on The CW.

Flash Season 7 Premiere Date Revealed

The CW has revealed a premiere date for The Flash Season 7.

Published

on

We finally have a date for the return of The Flash as The CW has announced a February 23 return for the Scarlet Speedster!

This may seem a bit late, but look at it this way: We’ll have fewer repeats and the show will be paired with the series premiere of Superman & Lois starring Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch as that other superhero/journalist wife team!

As The Flash Season 7 begins, the show will wrap up the Season 6 storylines that were so rudely interrupted by COVID before taking the Scarlet Speedster (Grant Gustin) on to new journeys.

You can find the full list of CW premiere dates here.

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super- speed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash.

After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton). With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)… Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.

Based on the characters from DC, THE FLASH is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “Supergirl,” “Riverdale”), Eric Wallace (“Teen Wolf,” “Eureka”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “Supergirl,” “Riverdale”).
