Also in the upcoming Arrow spin-off The Flash, another character from the comics was announced: Plastique.
No casting was announced, but the reveal of the character in the TV show did come with a description:
"The series’ incarnation of the metahuman is a fetching young redhead who was a bomb specialist with the Army before she was injured by an IED in Iraq. Since being exposed to the Central City explosion, she can turn any object into a bomb with just a touch of her hand – not a bad comrade for The Flash to have on his team, eh?"
Plastique from DC Comics
The TV version will be a comrade of The Flash? That might be a bit of a deviation from the comic version. The character of Plastique did appear on televsion before in Smallville, though this appears to be a different take. The Flash will start airing October 7, 2014 on CW.
