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.

    I hope that the people that was mention by Dr. Harrison Wells will appear in future episode of The Flash. I hope that the writer will tell the secret origin of Dr. Harrison Wells and what his deal with Barry Allen.
