Thanks to TVLINE, we have a pretty big clue as to who will be the supervillain antagonist of the second episode of The CW's Flash.

Q:What can you tell me about Stephen Amell’s cameo in the pilot for The Flash?
TVLINE: I can tell you that it’s a nice enough, if obvious, moment, where Barry seeks out the nudge he needs to be the hero he now can be. Now, if I can interest you in some Episode 2 scoop, I am hearing that the second metahuman The Flash will face off against might make us all feel a bit… well, Mist-y.


The most obvious choice, is that the second episode of the Flash series will feature a metahuman villain named the Mist. And true enough, there's is a DC Comics villain that goes by that moniker. The Mist is an obscure villain from the 1990's Starman series. Johnathon Smythe, was a scientist and war hero who invented a "device that turned his body into a gaseous form" and subsequently went on a crimewave in Opal City. Over the years, the character has also passed down the mantle of Mist to his children, who went by the alter-egos of Kyle Nimbus and Nash Nimbus. Of course, this is just my own guess based on the clue from TVLINE. There's also Mist Master, Dr. Mist, and a couple more possibilities and characters in play as well. Feel free to make your own guesses in the comment section below.

Johnathon Smythe as The Mist


Nash Nimbus as The Mist

He has man boobs.

Titty Man?

That comic panel looks like the Mist is about to touch Starman in a sacred place.
MarkJulian - 7/11/2014, 6:56 AM
Well, the second one is a woman.
Lozzy - 7/11/2014, 6:58 AM
@MarkJulian

Yes, because Nash is such a feminine name.
Jollem - 7/11/2014, 7:01 AM

Jollem - 7/11/2014, 7:02 AM
@Lozzy - well, boobs are pretty feminine

A villain with fog and wind in episode1。A villain with mist in episode2。A villain with ice in episodeX。

NOBODY SNEEZE!

What if it is a play on the phrase "Gorillas in the Mist" and he's talking about Grodd? We've already got the tease of him with the broken cage...
PsychoJester70 - 7/11/2014, 7:34 AM
Actually...he does say metahuman, but maybe it is a metasimian...

I was really hoping that they would stay away from the whole "Freak of The Week" type of television.

The Mist, sounds great.

Looking forward to the villain. Not looking forward to Arrow's cameo.

@Pasto The Mist was a villain who fought Starman. The original Mist fought the first Ted Knight the first Starman and the second Mist whose name was Nash fought Jack Knight who was the seventh Starman.

@kingpin, is that the dude from Fat Albert? Mushmouth?

I'm gonna be mad if Barry isn't putting his string cheese into Iris' Choco-Taco by the end of the season.

ASrrow Cameo Was Ok, Although A Little "Out Of Character".
If you dont know the mist, go read the 90's starman, infact read it anyways, its excellent and made for tv, they should adapt it!
DCGuy - 7/11/2014, 10:13 AM
I like that they are giving smaller bad guys a chance
Bread - 7/11/2014, 10:16 AM
I have a pal who's got a girlfriend named Sierra and we call her The Mist...just felt like sharing that.
Marxman12 - 7/11/2014, 11:52 AM
Mister Mzyltplk!
Super12 - 7/11/2014, 12:16 PM
Uhoh...this is starting to sound alot like the beginning of Smallville. Random 1 episode villains with supernatural powers...hope thats not the case.
Dunejedi - 7/11/2014, 12:34 PM
I hope we get Grodd in the first season. I'd eat the peanuts in McGee's sh!t.
GeekyCheekyChic - 7/11/2014, 1:38 PM
So the second villain after a pilot episode where the main bad guy kept "fogging" up the place we are getting a villain that "mists" up a place ? That seems boring and repetitive.
Mothchild - 7/11/2014, 2:50 PM
Mist Master Mike?
jimdotbeep - 7/11/2014, 3:15 PM
@Dunejedi These are the same people that changed Count vertigo to a run of the
Mill Drug Dealer because a European feudal lord was too far fetched. They even had to take away Whether wizards' costume, apparently a stylized shirt and a high collared Trench coat were too far fetched. So far the CW hasn't gotten any character right. Point being you shouldn't hold your breath for Grodd or for any high profile Flash Villain to be portrayed properly. which is a shame The Scarlet Speedster deserves a lot better than this.
