"The Flash" Meets A New Female Super-Villain

Actress Peyton List ("The Tomorrow People") cast as 'Lisa Snart', the sister of super-villain 'Captain Cold' in The CW's comic book TV series "The Flash", eventually becomes a costumed superhero character in her own right:

"...'Lisa' is a wild child, anxious to prove to her older brother she’s got what it takes to be in his criminal gang. She is sly, charming, and even a little sadistic. She's also not afraid to use her sexuality to get what she wants, which will put her on a collision course with 'S.T.A.R. Labs' employee 'Cisco Ramon' (Carlos Valdes)..."

"Will Lisa become the 'Golden Glider' in the first season of the new series...?"

The 'Golden Glider', enemy of "The Flash", first appeared in DC Comics' "Flash" #250 (June 1977). The evil alter ego of Lisa Snart, she is an Olympic level figure skater. Thanks to a pair of experimental skates that create their own ice, she is able to skate on any surface, including mid-air. She acquired a number of jewel-themed gadgets and weapons, including poisoned rings and 'hypnosis jewels', using them with devastating effect against the 'Flash'.
