So a few weeks ago we saw images from the set of The Flash season 2 (right here ladies and gents) revealing what we all guessed was the series’ new villain. He was a black Speedster with orange lightning around his suit and, while we were a bit put off by another speedster, we did think he looked very cool.
There were a few guesses around FTN HQ about who he might be (Godspeed seeming the favourite) but now we know exactly who he is.
During the Television Critics Association event it was revealed that he is… Savitar.
In the comics Savitar was a test pilot who was struck by lightning on a Cold War mission, granting him speedster abilities – his name comes from the Hindu meaning god of motion. He soon became a supervillain and an began hunting other speedsters such as Wally West and Johnny Quick to steel their speed and build his own army of evil speedsters.
We’ve also (link above) see images of Wally West in the show as Kid Flash and and we’ve seen him looking like he was given a beating, so maybe Savitar is looking to build his army in Season 3… and we’d imagine he’ll tie into the Flashpoint story too.
Thoughts? You know we want to hear them…
