The CW’s new hit series The Flash, based on the DC Comics’ character of the same name had its first season finale this past Tuesday; ending with some unexpected and surprising outcomes. The Reverse-Flash, Eobard Thawne was thwarted thanks Eddie’s sacrifice/suicide, but Flash was still left to save Central City and the rest of the world from a growing black hole! We have no doubt he will wipe the black hole out of existence, but what does the Season 2 hold for The Fastest Man Alive? According to the show’s creators, Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti, there will be more Speedsters and Super Villains to see and contend with.
Speedsters are any characters, heroic or villainous, whose primary power is the ability to run at super speed. The Flash is the most well known and fastest of these characters, but others like Jay Garrick the Original Flash, Wally West, Jesse Quick, Max Mercury, Bart Allen, and Jesse Chambers all have their own amazing speed powers. Next season most likely we will see Jay Garrick, as it was his helmet that fell out of the singularity during the season finale prompting the Reverse-Flash to leave and maybe even Wally West, the nephew of Iris West. There has been no mention of Joe West having another child, but as of DC Comic’s New 52 story lines Wally West does exist and he is African-American just like Joe and Iris’s counterparts on the CW series. Still with all this talk of time travel maybe we will see Max Mercury, a speedster who routinely gets lost in the time stream and Bart Allen, Barry and Iris’s grandson from the future. Mind boggling right?
As far as villains go Reverse-Flash hinted that Caitlin Snow and Cisco had both been affected by the particle accelerator. We even caught a glimpse of Caitlin as her imminent, villainess persona, Killer Frost. How and when it will happen remains to be seen. Captain Cold and The Rogues are sure to return and then there is the issue of Gorilla Grodd…still Flash has some of the most iconic super villains in his rogues gallery. We have yet to see many of them like Murmur, Zoom, Magenta, Mirror Master, Cobalt Blue, Black Flash, or The Top! Needless to say Season 2 is going to be exciting, but like everyone else you will have to catch it this fall only on The CW! Check out the Season 2 trailer below!
