It seems that Barry Allen will be getting a new villain coming to Central City this season. The villain Pyro will be making an appearance, to hinder The Flash in his fight for justice!
Pyro will be played by former Glee actor, Max Adler. Adler confirmed the news via his official Twitter account today.
According to DC Comics history, Pyro was granted extraordinary, superhuman abilities by a 45,000 year-old sorcerer named The Weaver, and became one of Power Girl’s villains. Pyro’s powers are pyrokinesis.
While not an “official” Flash villain, it is nice to see The CW filling out their DC Comics shows with little known characters from there never ending stable of characters.
You can check out Pyro’s costume from a DC Comics comic book over to the side. He looks about like any other C-tiered villain from the silver age of DC Comics. He sports a short cape, a hood, classic hangover boots, and has a white and purple color scheme. Most likely he will look nothing like this when we see him in his episode of The Flash.
