There could be fewer metahumans in Central City if Chris Klein gets his villainous ways.
The American Pie star has joined The Flash for Season 5 in a series regular role as DC Supervillain Cicada. It was announced during the series panel at San Diego Comic Con.
Cicada is described as a “grizzled, blue-collar everyman whose family has been torn apart by metahumans.” He views the rise of metas as an epidemic and seeks to exterminate them one by one.
In the comics, Cicada, known as David Hersch, is sick with regret after murdering his wife, sought to end his own life, when he was struck by a bolt of lightning. He discovered that he had gained the ability to absorb the life-force of others, extending his life-span almost a century. He believed the accident was the same as the Flash’s and that they should be linked. The lightning bolt gave him a vision of his own immortality and foretold the resurrection of his wife. Over the subsequent years, he operated as the cult leader Cicada, accumulating many followers planning for the day he would resurrect his wife.
Let us know in the comments below your thoughts on the casting of Chris Klein.
Matching wits with The Thinker, who by season’s end had harnessed the powers of all 12 bus metas he created, stretched Team Flash to its limits, but with the help of some new allies, Barry Allen (a.k.a. The Flash) and company were able to put a stop to the Enlightenment and save Central City once again. However, with the arrival of Barry and Iris’s speedster daughter Nora, who appears from the future admitting to having made a “big mistake,” things are anything but status quo. Will parenthood be the challenge that finally slows the Flash down? From Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, The Flash will return to The CW this fall on Tuesdays at 8/7c.
