The Flash Teases Elongated Man, Atom Smasher, Damage, Amazing Man & Fire



Tonight saw a batch of new DC Comics characters referenced on The Flash with mention of the alternate personas of Elongated Man, Atom Smasher, Damage, Amazing Man and Fire.

"Blackout" was attacking Dr. Wells, when Backlout remarked that Wells didn't even know the people's names that he had hurt in the particle accelerator accident.

Wells then proceeded to name two of Blackout's friends that died followed by the names of the following DC Comics characters.

Ralph Dibny - aka the Elongated Man; first appeared in The Flash #112; member of the Justice League. In the comics his powers were activated by drinking a mixture made with a fictional fruit that activated his latent super powers through a metagene. Per the name, Elongated Man can stretch his limbs leading to increased length, size and durability. Elongated Man can also withstand certain elements and can even disguise his face by changing it shape.

Al Rostein - aka Nuklon, aka Atom Smasher; member of the Justice League; In the comics, Atom Smasher acquired his powers from his supe villain grandfather, which gave him super strength and density as well as the ability to increase his height.

Grant Emerson - aka Damage; member of the Justice Society Of America. Damage has superhuman strength, durability, speed, and reflexes due to being able to generate a power charge.

Will Everett - aka Amazing Man; member of Justice League. Amazing Man has been able to transform himself into any material he touches, and at different times has been able to magnetically control objects with his hands, as well as control and absorb various energies.

Beatriz Da Costa - aka Fire; member of the Justice League; In the comics, Fire acquired her powers as a result of a pyroplasmic explosion (and early on from Brazilian mysticism). Her powers include transforming into green-colored plasma capable of throwing plasma blasts, and at one time had flame breath powers.

The episode also saw Wells mention Ronnie Raymond as one of the victims. With it known Robbie Amell will be playing Firestorm in The Flash TV series, perhaps the other characters cited above are not quite dead and may make an appearance in the future.

"The Flash" airs Tuesdays at 8pm ET on the CW.
