The Flash producers have made it clear they intend to reset from season three’s darker tone and return the superhero show to its fun adventure roots. Part of the new Flash is bringing in non-speedster villains.
Executive producer Todd Helbing confirmed to CBR that Kilg%re will appear in season four as a major thorn in Barry’s side. He said the character is “a lot of fun, and fans should enjoy getting to know one of the stranger bad guys to take on the Scarlet Speedster in the comics.”
Kilg%re is a “sentient computer virus” that can control any electrical device. In the comics he has attacked the power grid and almost took over the world.
Wally did finally defeat it, but it came back and took control of Maxwell Lord’s brain. This could make for an interesting development since Maxwell Lord was a regular character in the first season of The Flash’s sister show Supergirl.
The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 pm on The CW.
