The Rogues Return in THE FLASH #7

How will the 'New 52' change Flash's villains?

With DC's 'The New 52,' most of the focus has been on the heroes and the changes they've gone through. I've always been more curious to see what changes would happen with the villains. We're about to find out with the Rogues as DC has announced their deadly return to comics in THE FLASH #7.

We've already caught a glimpse of Captain Cold. I have a feeling he won't be messing around when he makes his full debut. We'll find out in March.

Cold is a wrestler now.Still looks cool.

That makes it look like his power comes from within instead of a gun

ReVamp approves.

@ReVamp: heh His visor still looks like the Mole Man and his people. :p

that's what i was thinking, and i hope so, i'm tired of them being beaten by someone disarming their weapons, i hope they ALL get superpowers...i was hoping Captain Boomerang would keep his Brightest day explosive boomerang constructs

YAS, he is finally cool looking :P

I believe all the Rogues are becoming metas (don't know about Trickster yet). Weather Wizard was already on his way before reboot. The wand was a crutch.

 This also might stop the comparisons to Mr Freeze. 

It showed that Captain Boomerang lost them in the last issue of Red Robin but I to hope he has something like that in the new 52 .

I cannot wait!!! Flash is one of the best damn books of the relaunch!

looks good

Posted by joshmightbe

Anyone else getting a Sub-Zero vibe here?

Posted by jsphsmth

@The Stegman: Yes. Manapul and/or Buccellato gave an interview stating as much. They wanted to get away from the villian with a cold gun idea.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

I already miss the cold gun

Yeah. That was the first thing i noticed.
Posted by NightFang

That COOL, I wonder if they'll make the Trickster more like the Joker and make the Thinker a mix of the Mad Thinker and Mento?

i hope his powers come from within instead of the gun

Posted by wowylied

Look nice i am not a fan of the naked arms but i wait to see it in action. The evolution to a meta state is not something i like very much, they look a little charm but i give them a chance they will maybe surprise me.

Posted by Gambit1024

Huh.

Ya know, I never thought I'd ever say it, but Captain Cold looks badass.

Posted by Or35ti

DC is giving us so much to look forward too! March can't come any sooner!

Posted by BlackArmor

AWWWWWWWWWW YEAH! I can't wait

I mean most of Flashs villains all having weapon based arsenals may have been cute in the golden age but now it is just silly, they attempted to rectify this with the "new rogues"...but no one really cared about them LOL

But it opens the door for Icicle II comparisons.

He won't be confused with Killer Frost, unless there is a sex change as part of the reboot.

I still find his Mole Man visor to be weird...

Posted by webofthornns

Definitely looking forward to the Rogues debut

Posted by fury714

Cool design. Looking forward to it. :D

Posted by The Stegman
@Mr. Kamikaze: but technically, since Cold came out before Mole Man, wouldn't Mole Man really have "Captain Cold Visors"?

Well Icicle will most likely go over to Earth 2 with the JSA.

@inferiorego: ugh me too

Posted by sj_esposito

This is so cool. Francis Manapul has done some of the best redesigns of the whole relaunch--which is, apparently, hard to do, since most of them suck.

Posted by Omega Ray Jay

Interesting stuff

Posted by ChaosAgentLoki

Hopefully their role lives up to the rest of what we've been getting with The Flash so far. It is my favorite series from the New 52.

Posted by cagedleo730

@Dernman: And Icicle II has the full-body ice thing like Iceman. Just like you won't confuse Ice (JLI) and Killer Frost

Posted by Sky_Jokiel

Yay finally he has actual power and not a stupid gun :D

Posted by Mumbles

sweet! cold looks good. rouges are the bestest

Posted by Aeroman

he looks badass

Posted by CODYSF

Dam he looks badass

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

I liked his old costume, but i can see why they wanted to make him different from Mr. Freeze who also uses a freeze gun.

Posted by Mbecks14

At first i was like "Wha-??" then i looked again and was like "WOW!"

Posted by Sharkey

That's a really sweet redesign, I love the incorporation of the hood into the uniform and the apparent change to becoming a metahuman. 
 
I'll admit I was a bit "should I?" with continuing with the current Flash series, but this has made me want to carry on collecting! :)

Posted by Azrael66

Captain Cold actually looks badass now.

Posted by 218Comics

Seriously? Captain Cold is sleeveless now? I know it's supposed to be a more "edgey" version, but anyone who lives in northern states knows you don't go sleeveless in the snow. Also, he now has ice powers? When did that start?

Posted by garrison12795

hoods look kind of douchey without sleeves.

also, i liked his cold guns. they were so stylized...oh well. the costume's okay, just needs sleeves.

Stone Cold Steve Austin. :P

Posted by Gordo789

Is that a hooded vest? where do you even get a thing like that? who makes supervillain outfits anyway? do they have a union seamstress or something? One picture, so many questions.

Posted by fodigg

BOOO the new captain cold. I like the cold gun better.

Edited by The_Tree

He's in desperate need of sleeves. I also hope that these newfound ice powers are actually explained, rather than just randomly appearing with them.

Otherwise, cool.
