‘The Flash’ Synopsis Teases The Introduction Of An Iconic DC Comics Villain

DC villain Icicle is coming to The CW’s Arrowverse series The Flash according to a recently-released plot synopsis.

The CW is great about adapting iconic DC characters, as well as lesser known characters, into their Arrowverse series. DC has been around for nearly 85 years, which means that there is a long list of foes that have fallen to the wayside. Luckily, The CW isn’t letting some of those characters be forgotten, including another cold-centric villain for the Scarlet Speedster himself to go up against. Earlier this season there was some investigation done into the past of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), a.k.a. Killer Frost, and during the investigation, it turned out that Caitlin’s father’s death certificate may have actually been faked.

The discovery came when it turned out that the doctor who signed the death certificate did not exist and his name may seem familiar to DC fans, as it’s Cameron Mahkent. No, it’s not the alter ego of Superman’s mom, but actually the name used by the villain Icicle in DC Comics. According to the plot synopsis of the upcoming episode The Icicle Cometh, Icicle could be appearing in live-action for the first time since Smallville. 

“‘The Icicle Cometh’–(8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-PG LV) (HDTV)

CAITLIN LEARNS SOMETHING NEW ABOUT HER FATHER–Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), Barry (Grant Gustin) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) learn something new about Caitlin’s father (guest star Kyle Secor). Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) and Sherloque (Tom Cavanagh) follow a clue about Cicada (Chris Klein).”

Cameron Mahkent is actually the son of the original Icicle. The original incarnation of the villain, Joar Mahkent, simply had a cold gun as his weapon. His son, however, had actual superpowers much closer to that of Killer Frost on The Flash. There’s no telling how long the character will be around i the Arrowverse but fans will have to wait for the episode to air on November 20th to find out just how important of a role he’ll play.

Matching wits with The Thinker, who by season’s end had harnessed the powers of all twelve bus metas he created, stretched Team Flash to their limits, but with the help of some new allies, Barry Allen (aka The Flash) and company were able to put a stop to the Enlightenment and save Central City once again. However, with the arrival of Barry and Iris’ speedster daughter, Nora, who arrived from the future admitting to having made a “big mistake,” things are anything but status quo. Will parenthood be the challenge that finally slows The Flash down?

The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon/Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West and Jessica Parker Kennedy as Nora West-Allen.
