While the Flash’s Rogue Gallery (or villain lineup) in comics has never been as famous as Superman’s or Batman’s, Flash does have his own villain team in The Rogues; assembled and led by Captain Cold, it consisting of Heat Wave, Weather Wizard, the Trickster, Pied Piper, the Top, Captain Boomerang, and Mirror Master. If you’ve been watching The Flash television series, you know that many of these characters have popped up already (Captain Boomerang even getting involved in a minor crossover with Arrow), and now it looks like another ‘rogue’ is entering the fray for the show’s third season.
Mirror Master, one of Flash’s more famous Rogues, was surprisingly left out of the first two seasons; now Comic Book Resources has confirmed the manipulator of mirrors will be finally making an appearance on the show as played by Grey Damon. The actor is most known for his roles as Hastings Shuffle in the TV version of Friday Night Lights, as well as his current gig on Aquarius as detective Brian Shafe.
The official character description from WBTV is as follows:
“One of the Flash’s most infamous Rogues, Sam Scudder — aka Mirror Master — is a smooth criminal with a huge ego. Upon discovering he now has the power to travel through any reflective surface, Scudder embarks on a massive crime spree to prove himself the greatest thief that Central City has ever seen.”
The ‘Sam Scudder’ version of Mirror Master is notable for having died at some point in the comics and then replaced by Evan McCulloch; whether the show will in any way reflect this is unclear. Either way, we’ll have to wait and see what the writers have up their sleeves with the master of mirrors when the show returns to television screens on October 4th on The CW.
