'The Flash' adds to Gallery of Villains

The CW's latest superhero, The Flash (played by GLEE's Grant Gustin) is going to have his hands full in his first season. The show premieres Oct. 7, 2014 and producers have already leaked the names of some of the foes the Scarlet Speedster will face off against in his first season:

TV Line reports that Sgt. Bette Sans Souci (a.k.a. Plastique) will appear on The Flash this season. No casting has been announced yet.

Plastique joins the ranks of a growing list of The Flash's foes to speed from comic book page to the small screen.

"The Flash" arrives from co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, who, along with Geoff Johns, wrote the pilot episode which was helmed by "Arrow" pilot director David Nutter. Grant Gustin will star as the titular hero along with Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Iris's father, Detective West, Michelle Harrison as Barry's mother Nora Allen and many others, including John Wesley Shipp, from the original "The Flash" TV series as Barry's father. The series debuts this fall on The CW.

In THE FLASH, after a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only "meta-human" who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion -- and not everyone is using their new powers for good.

Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won't be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become...The Flash.

THE FLASH, from Warner Bros. Television and based upon characters published by DC Comics, is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and David Nutter (all of Arrow). Nutter is directing from a script by Berlanti & Kreisberg & DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns.
