With The Flash set to debut in a few days on The CW, we asked Executive Producer and acclaimed Flash writer Geoff Johns if he’d mind sharing some thoughts on the Flash’s cast of super-villains, and particularly Captain Cold and the Rogues, the cold gun touting thief and his team of working class baddies who work together to make a dishonest dollar in a city patrolled by the Fastest Man Alive…
A hero is often defined by his or her villains. And few heroes have villains as cool and colorful and flat out weird as the Flash.
The Rogues define the Flash and he defines them: Mirror Master, Heat Wave, Weather Wizard, the Trickster and most especially the two Captains Captain Cold and Captain Boomerang.
In FLASH 7, the spotlight falls on Captain Boomerang. How did Boomererang first fall in with the Rogues? Why has he returned from the dead? And does he still have what it takes to be a Rogue?
