Another classic villain Zooms onto Flash TV series.
The Flash’s Rogues gallery gets bigger by the day with another classic foe being brought to the live action series, this time his arch-nemesis: Reverse Flash! There have been several versions of Reverse Flash over the years but the most famous and still current version is Professor Zoom. The first appearance of Professor Zoom was in The Flash #139 in September of 1963, he was created by John Broome and artist Carmine Infantino.
Zoom’s real name is Eobard Thawne and there have been many different versions of his origin over the years, including recreating the accident that gave the Flash his powers, in the upcoming tv series however it seems that he is being introduced as Police detective Eddie Thawne, and will be played by actor Rick Cosnett. With all these fantastic DC Supervillains being announced, we cannot wait for the Flash series to begin and with the talk of cross-over episodes with Arrow…the air date of October 7th can’t get here fast enough!
