Who is That?


Everyone knows the big guys in the Comics and shows but these shows also have a lot of lesser known characters. The Point of this thread is to give a little write up about a character that may not be too well known by fans of the Shows.

Re: Who is That?


Starling/ Evelyn Crawford - Many fans feel Evelyn Sharp is the show's version of Starling and there are even reports that her full name is listed as Evelyn Crawford Sharp. Evelyn Crawford is an old friend of Black Canary in the comics and is a Superhero that goes by the name Starling. The Two worked undercover together at Penguin's Iceberg Lounge and she would go on to join Canary as the first member of the Birds of Prey. She is proficient in Firearms and her left arm is covered in Tattoos.

She is a newer character making her debut in Birds of Prey vol. 2 in 2013.

Thanagarian

Name dropped on Legends of Tomorrow, the Thanagarians are a race of Hawk people much like Hawkman and Hawkwoman who come from the planet Thanagar, home of the gravity-defying Nth metal. In the often confusing backstory of Hawkman and Hawkwoman, their alien backstory has them from Thanagar who come to Earth and reincarnate through history.

In the Comics, they are often at war with Rann, the adopted home planet of Adam Strange.

Re: Who is That?


I don't know much about the character on "The Flash" known as "Girder"...however, last night I was watching the episode "Runaway Dinosaur" and Girder made an appearance as a zombie (apparently it's the 3rd episode that he has been in so far)...

my wife recognized him as a zombie from "iZombie", and apparently when I checked out the guy's imdb page, he does also play a zombie on iZombie...

I didn't realize that iZombie was a comic book related to DC [sign in to see URL] there any iZombie connection to the Flash, or just a coincidence that the same guy played a zombie on 2 different CW shows?

I'd say it was likely a coincidence, given the writers they likely made Girder the Zombie because the actor appeared on iZombie. It's something that often happens on the CW as a whole, Stephen Amell appeared on The Vampire Diaries before appearing on Arrow for example. If the CW likes an actor they will attempt to keep them around.

iZombie is a part of the DC Comics Family, under the Vertigo print which is also where Lucifer and the upcoming Preacher series come from. Other notable works include V for Vendetta, Sandman, Constantine, Swamp Thing, Y: The Last Man and 100 Bullets.

But all of this doesn't mean iZombie will never crossover with the Flash as they could say iZombie is another Earth.

Rex Tyler - If you watched Legends of Tomorrow's season finale you saw the introduction of Patrick J. Adams' mystery character. The subject of lots of rumors and speculation we learned in the finale that he is none other than Rex Tyler.

Rex Tyler is better known as Hourman, a member of the Justice Society of America. A scientist he developed the Miraclo Pill which gives him Super Strength, Speed and other powers for an hour, hence the name Hourman. He first appeared in Adventure Comics #48 from March 1940. At one point during his run, the writers explored the addictive nature of both the drug and crime fighting.

Rex was the first Hourman, he would be followed by his Son Rick Tyler who took the mantle during the Crisis on Infinite Earths and he to would become addicted to the pills and eventually he would marry Jesse Chambers who Flash fans will know as Jesse Chambers Wells aka Jesse Quick.

Re: Who is That?


Yeah, Wally is closer to his Comic version who would become the Flash after Barry Allen's "Death" during the Crisis of Infinite Earths, Barry much like he did this season he appeared to be vaporized and became part of the Speed Force, but unlike the show it was after running as fast as he could to prevent the destruction of the universe. Much as it is in the show Wally was related to Iris West, originally he was her nephew and after an accident while visiting Berry he gained the same powers as The Flash becoming Kid Flash, a role he will take in the upcoming DC Rebirth. They've kind of hinted at him becoming a speedster but nothing yet.

Jesse Wells is based on Jesse Chambers aka Jesse Quick, the daughter of Johnny Quick and Liberty Belle. She would gain her superspeed from her father who had taught her the formula and eventually she'd team with the JSA as well as Wally West.

The show seems to be setting up the Wally and Jesse team for when they do start displaying powers

Re: Who is That?


one superhero (or villianess, however you want to view her) that I would have liked to see get expanded was the "Huntress"...she was on Arrow a couple times, but they didn't follow thru with her character development (never really got passed her being pissed at her daddy issues)
