This week saw The Flash race to the end of its current run with one of its most shocking episodes ever. The show’s sophomore outing might not have been as widely loved its first season, but it was definitely highly entertaining – which was largely due to the many characters from the comic book mythology that were introduced. We had Jay Garrick, Killer Frost, Zoom, Wally West, Jesse Quick… the list goes on and on.
If season three has any hopes of beating season two, then, it needs to dive even deeper in to the source material and deliver some new characters we’ve yet to see on the show, or evolve other characters into the heroes or villains they usually are in the comics.
The producers certainly have their work cut out for them in finding a new major villain, after burning through both Eobard Thawne and Hunter Zolomon, but while they figure out who the hero’s next major antagonist should be, they should also consider adding some of the following eight characters into the mix next year.
