COMICS: Gatefold Cover for THE FLASH #19 Reveals the First Look at a Returning Villain

Newsarama has recently revealed the "surprise" gatefold cover for The Flash #19, which gives us our first full look at The New 52's version of a returning classic villain. Is it who you think it is? Well, there will surely be a spoiler, but you can check it out after the jump...

Yes, it's none other than the Reverse-Flash! It may not exactly be a surprise after all, as the villain has been a subject of much discussion due to his absence in The New 52 following the events of Flashpoint, but the creative team responsible for the title's run has ever since promised that the character will be making his long awaited debut in the upcoming issues of The Flash. As you can see in the image below, the new look of the villain remains faithful to Francis Manapul's concept art which was released a few weeks ago, although it still doesn't provide us with any hint of the character's presumably revised background in this new incarnation. Nonetheless, check out the Reverse-Flash's new look in the gatefold cover right below...
