We already know that more speedsters will be showing up in Central City when The Flash returns for its second season, and now the identity of one such hero has been revealed. According to DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, Jay Garrick will be speeding his way onto television when The Flash returns this fall.
In the comics, Garrick is the original Golden Age Flash, having made his debut in Flash Comics #1 in 1940. After the recent New 52 relaunch, Garrick was made the Flash of Earth 2, one of DC’s several alternate universes. It’s also been revealed that the DC Multiverse will play a part in The Flash‘s sophomore season, and judging by the way Garrick’s iconic winged helmet appeared out of one of the time travel wormholes created by Reverse Flash, that seems the most logical way to introduce the character next year.

We still don’t know who will play the role of Garrick in season two; fans speculated for quite some time that former Flash actor John Wesley Shipp would play the character, but he was cast in the role of Barry Allen’s imprisoned father instead. With more reveals yet to come as San Diego Comic-Con continues, hopefully that mystery won’t remain unsolved for long.

The Flash will return for its second season on Tuesday, October 6th, 2015 on the CW.
