A new DC Comics hero will appear in The Flash season 3 episode 14 titled Attack on Central City. The character reportedly comes from Earth-19. Hence, his outdated costume and curious name.
Spoilers teased about his introduction back in December. However, it was uncertain when it would actually take place. Moreover, if it would happen at all.
The guessing game is over as recent stills shared by The CW revealed who he is. Hence, fans get to meet another DC Comics hero in particular one whom many might not be quite familiar with.
Accelerated Man Appears in The Flash Season 3 Episode 14
According to Comic Book, Accelerated Man is a character from Earth-19. Apparently, this Earth of the DC Comics multiverse is where superheroes from the Industrial Revolution of the Edwardian era existed.
At this time, King Edward is the ruler and electricity is still new to many. Incidentally, the location is also the setting for the popular Gotham by Gaslight graphic novel.
This might explain his red pilot suit and the cap with matching goggles. Add to it, his yellow boots, gloves, a white belt, and mouth mask. Sean Poague plays Accelerated Man in The Flash season 3 episode 14.
The actor previously appeared in The Man in the High Castle and Sandra Brown’s White Hot. Interestingly, Bleeding Cool pointed out the character has no backstory.
Hence, it would be interesting to see how The Flash will incorporate his character into the plot. Could it have something to do with Grodd’s plans to take the battle to Earth 1? Plus, would the character end up being a regular cast member?
