In this week’s Ask Ausiello column at TVLine.com, Michael Ausiello revealed that the DC Comics character Plastique is on the way to The Flash.
From this week’s report:
I’ve got some explosive scoop on this one (you’ll see what I did there in a minute): Sgt. Bette Sans Souci – AKA Plastique – will make her way to The Flash this season. The series’ incarnation of the metahuman is a fetching young redhead who was a bomb specialist with the Army before she was injured by an IED in Iraq. Since being exposed to the Central City explosion, she can turn any object into a bomb with just a touch of her hand – not a bad comrade for The Flash to have on his team, eh?”

Fans of Smallville may remember Plastique as appearing in a few episodes, where she was played by The Secret Circle’s Jessica Parker Kennedy.
Interesting trivia: Plastique was often a foe of Firestorm, who of course is showing up on The Flash in the form of Robbie Amell.
