The Rogues of The Flash have added another member, in the form of Aquarius star Grey Damon, who will play Mirror Master next season, it has been announced.
Damon, who is probably best know for Friday Night Lights, Star-Crossed and Aquarius, is to play Sam Scudder aka Mirror Master, a villain who has the ability to manipulate reflective surfaces. He can travel through mirrors like portals, giving him a great way to rob banks, and to evade Flash’s super-speed. He can also trap people inside them or shatter them, which makes a pretty effective weapon!
Mirror Master first appeared in 1959 as a Flash villain, and has long been a member of the ‘Rogues’, a group of super-villains which has included at various points Captain Cold, Pied Piper, Weather Wizard, Trickster, Captain Boomerang, Double Down, Heat Wave and Golden Glider.
This isn’t the first time on screen for Mirror Master, having been portrayed by David Cassidy in the 90’s tv Flash, and on the Justice League Unlimited cartoon, and Justice League: Doom voiced by Buffy/Angel alumni Alexis Denisof.
The official character description for this version of the character reads:
One of the Flash’s most infamous Rogues, Sam Scudder (aka Mirror Master) is a smooth criminal with a huge ego. Upon discovering he now has the power to travel through any reflective surface, Scudder embarks on a massive crime spree to prove himself the greatest thief that Central City has ever seen…
The Flash returns in the US on the 4th October 2016, and is due in the UK soon afterwards on Sky 1.
