First Look at The New Villain Godspeed in DC's THE FLASH
There’s a new villain being introduced to The CW’s DC series The Flash. His name is Godspeed and we have our first look at him to share with you.
The character is going to make his big debut on the series tonight and this is sure to be a game-changing villain in the series! Why? Because he has the power to separate the other speedsters from their connection to the speed force, which can kill them in the process. This is a powerful ability to have. Oh yeah, he’s also supposed to be even faster than Barry Allen’s Flash!
Godspeed is a fairly new character to the world of Flash. He was created by Joshua Williamson and Carmine Di Giandomenico and he made his first appearance in The Flash: Rebirth #1. The character’s real name is August Heart and like a lot of villains, he initially started out as a friend of Barry Allen. He was a fellow detective who ended up murdering his brother’s killer. As you might image he has a twisted sense of morality.
I’m not sure how the character will be handled in the series, but I’ll be looking forward to learning how his story arc plays out. Here’s the synopsis for tonight’s episode which is called “Godspeed”:
After discovering that Nora (Jessica Parker Kennedy) is working with Thawne (Tom Cavanagh), Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) disagree about how to handle their daughter in the wake of this shocking news. Team Flash isn’t sure they can trust Nora, so they go through her journal to find out exactly how she came to work alongside their greatest nemesis. Danielle Panabaker directed the episode written by Judalina Neira & Kelly Wheeler.
The upcoming episode was directed by The Flash veteran Danielle Panabaker. What do you think of Godspeed’s character design for the series?
