‘The Flash’ to Unite DC Comics ‘Rogues’ Supervillains

Last month, we revealed that actor Doug Jones has signed on to play the villainous Deathbolt in CW's Arrow in an upcoming episode entitled "Broken Arrow". Today, the actor took to his Twitter page to reveal that his character will also appear in an episode of The Flash entitled "Rogue Air,"which will be the 22nd episode of Season 1. No details were given on how the character will cross over from Arrow's Starling City to The Flash's Central City, but it seems that The Flash keeps adding more members of the superhero group the Rogues, and who may be fully assembled by the season finale.

Jake Simmons, a.k.a. Deathbolt, was created in 1983 by Roy Thomas and Jerry Ordway. first appearing in All-Star Squadron #21. This powerful villain has the ability to manipulate electricity, and was also given the nickname "The Human Battery" in the comics. His appearance in Arrow will be the the first time a "metahuman" will appear in the series, so it makes sense that he will also cross over to The Flash, where several metahumans have appeared.

Jake Simmons, a.k.a. Deathbolt, was created in 1983 by Roy Thomas and Jerry Ordway. first appearing in All-Star Squadron #21. This powerful villain has the ability to manipulate electricity, and was also given the nickname "The Human Battery" in the comics. His addition to Arrow is rather important, since he will be the first "metahuman" to appear in Starling City, aside from The Flash crossover episode. It isn't known if Simmons got his powers during the S.T.A.R. Labs explosion in Central City that gave Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and several others their powers on The Flash, or if another cause for his powers will be given.
