THE FLASH Will Introduce Gypsy Later This Season

THE FLASH Will Introduce Gypsy Later This Season

The mid-season finale of The Flash left an ominous fate hanging over the head of at least one member of Team Flash. But the good news is that there’s a new heroine coming to the show later this season: Gypsy!

Via Heroic Hollywood, The Flash star Carlos Valdes revealed the upcoming introduction of Gypsy during a new installment of The CW’s Fan Feast. “There’s going to be a new visitor to our world named Gypsy,” said Valdes. DC Comics fans will be familiar with Gypsy. She is going to be coming in our world and Vibe will definitely get to learn some new skills as part of getting to know her. So I’m excited to see how that plays out.”

In DC’s comic book universe, Gypsy is Cindy Reynolds, and she had the power to create illusion and to make herself invisible. She also shared a history with Vibe as a member of the infamous Justice League Detroit from the ’80s. That was DC’s attempt to revamp the Justice League with several original characters, which were not immediately embraced by the fans.

The Arrowverse has already done a lot to rehabilitate Vibe’s image, and it’s even offered up two new versions of Vixen. While Gypsy joined both of her teammates on the Justice League Unlimited animated series, she could certainly use a revamp as well. The following picture is what she looked like in one of her more recent costumes:

In the New 52 continuity, Gypsy is a runaway from another dimension and she was tied even more closely to Vibe, which may be why Valdes indicated that his character, Cisco Ramon, will be interacting with her on the show. While the natural assumption is that Gypsy may be a love interest to Cisco, she could also simply be a good friend or surrogate sister for him as well. Either way, it’s nice to see another superheroine coming to The Flash. The CW hasn’t announced who has been cast in the role, but we will probably find out early in 2017.
