If you’ve read any of my previous DC Super Hero Girls book reviews (and if not, you can find links to both of them at the bottom of this post), then you know I’m all in on this book series and the very concept of this line to begin with. The books hit as a real breath of fresh air after some of the series drama that is going on in the main line of comic books.
On paper, you can break down the difference between heroes and rogues in black and white words. But is it really so simple as a checklist? It's not like a determined number of actions cancel out evil deeds. There's not an official table that says one person rescued makes up for committing a robbery and wrecking property. People have to decide whether others have changed by going with their guts and their hearts. It's something I considered as I read the first pages of THE FLASH VOL.
In tonight’s episode of The Flash we meet two titular characters—“The New Rogues”! Sam Scudder (a.k.a. Mirror Master), along with his girlfriend Rosalind Dillon (a.k.a. Top), are the latest metahumans on the block and they have more evil-leaning ulterior motives than any of the S.T.A.R. Labs gang. Sam Scudder is the first of three men to take up the mantle of Mirror Master (fun fact: the third one was Scottish!) and—in the context of the comic books—the Top is a man!
