    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    Impulse was in 3 episodes of Smallville, they always talked about him so it felt like a dozen at least, but the actor Kyle was in three... But in his first one he used the line "I'd come back in time 500 years just to meet you" in reference to the extraordinary Alison Mack, but they went no further explaining his upstream origin.

    I just watched that for the first time last night. Really good, but the on-screen carnage, wow. :eek: (Also Aquaman's design was laughably over-buff.)

    (Also also KADUR'AHM! And Tula! And Garth! But especially Kaldur! :D)

    Didn't that movie kind of present it as just some big thug who broke in?

    Correct.

    An ordinary murder.

    Until Barry went back in time and stopped it.

    FLASHPOINT!

    Zoom because of his connection to the Speedforce was inoculated from the changes tot he timeline, and further used the connection to stop Barry from stopping himself from saving his mum with yet more time travel, because he is an Ass who loved the thought that Barry and his Mommy issues destroyed the world, and NO MULLIGANS!

    Yeah, that's how it looks. It makes me wonder why they're not just calling him Hunter Zolomon, though. Is it just because the Flash in this show will be Barry, and Zolomon was linked to Wally's Flash?

    Not to mention Shrapnel. I had never heard of him before, but once they revealed Scheffer's username from the website, I knew he had to be from the comics. So I looked him up, and the character on Arrow is absolutely nothing like the comic character. I get not wanting to have a guy made entirely out of metal, but the comic character didn't even use explosives.

    And I thought Smallville's Mxyzptlk was a poor interpretation...

    After hearing Barry's description of the murderer I immediately thought "I bet it was Professor Zoom", and I wasn't even aware that he had killed her "before"!

    Not familiar with her -- or at least I don't remember her from the Heroes and Castle episodes IMDb says I've seen her in -- but she looks pretty nice. It seems the producers have a type; she's got some traits that remind me of Katie Cassidy, the narrow face and the shape of the eyes. But they work much better on Patton.

    I don't remember seeing her in anything else either but she's pretty easy on the eyes.

    She's also been on "Harry's Law" for an episode. I planning to rewatch that show, anyway. Can't quite remember her, but she definitely looks nice.

    Vibe??? Well, I guess he's no more obscure than Felicity Smoak...

    The new Vibe was pretty cool in his 52 reboot. I will be interested to see how far they take him.

    Ugh, the only Vibe I am familiar with is from the DC Shorts. Please let it not be anything like him.

    If he is anything like the Nu52 Vibe, it'll be cool.

    It'd nice if like how the original Flash series gave Robert Shayne a reaccuring role, they give a reaccuring part to John Wesley Shipp.
