Dominic Purcell to bring Heat Wave to The Flash

September 3rd, 2014 by Saxon Comments

According to The Hollywood Reporter, former Prison Break star Dominic Purcell is set to portray the villainous Heat Wave in season one of The Flash.  

Purcell is set to star in episode 10, where he will be reunited with his former co-star Wentworth Miller, in which he takes on the role of Mick Rory (better known as bad guy Heat Wave) who will be teaming up with Miller’s Captain Cold.

Heat Wave originally appeared in the comics in 1963 as an ordinary man sporting a flame thrower weapon.  His character evolved over the decades and now has pyrokinetic powers.  No word yet on which version of the character will appear, but after the explosion at STAR Labs which gave Barry Allen his super speedy powers, we’re willing to guess the pyrokinetic Heat Wave will be the version that is used.

“The Flash” premieres October 7 on The CW.
