Come on Mattel! We have seen all these waves of DCUC come and go, with only a crumb or two tossed our way with (undersized) Captain Cold and Grodd...where are our beloved Flash Rogues??

Okay, it seems that every time I open the pages of a DC comic lately, I keep coming up with more characters that I really think need to be added to the DC Universe Classics line. For everyone's consideration, may I recommend the following:

JAY GARRICK -- Look at the rest of the Golden Age JSA we've already gotten! Wildcat, Doctor Fate, Spectre, with Hourman, Starman, and Alan Scott forthcoming. Where the heck is Garrick!? He's certainly one of the most prominent players on that team even now!

MIRROR MASTER, WEATHER WIZARD, and CAPTAIN BOOMERANG - Come on, really, where's some more of the Flash's Rogue's Gallery? So far we've had Captain Cold and a Collect-and-Connect of Gorilla Grodd. These three, one way or another, have already made it into DC Infinite Heroes and the Justice League Unlimited line. They deserve their shot at the big time! Although I would recommend putting Boomer in his modern uniform. His original one always looked like a bad pajama top to me... ;)

I'm sure I'll think of more later...

Absolutely, bring him on. I'd definitely want him as a single, but as some others have suggested, he would do well in a 5-pack assortment with a Barry Allen Flash, Professor Zoom (or Reverse Flash if you prefer) and...

I want to see all of these at some point. My only concern is how well they'll sell. Not that they're not all great characters, because they are. My trepidation is based on how poorly Captain Cold sold, who is debatably Flash's most recognizable villain. I'd buy them all as singles, but I think they'd be better suited in a 5-pack with the aforementioned Jay Garrick.

Jay Garrick and Flash's Rogues are a must in the DCUC line! I agree! :D

So far I'm limiting myself to just Flash characters in the DC Universe Classics line. Currently available/announced are:

The Flash (Barry Allen)
Kid Flash (Wally West)
Blue Lantern Flash

Gorilla Grodd (build a figure)
Captain Cold
Captain Boomerang (Brightest Day era)

Jay Garrick Flash seems to be frequently requested, but what else would people like to see?

I'd love to see Impulse (Bart Allen), either version of the Trickster, Weather Wizard (modern costume) and Mirror Master.

I'm a little surprised there's been no hint of a twin pack or something with Professor Zoom, considering what an easy repaint it would be. And if they ever released an Impulse it could easily be repainted as Inertia.

As far as DC comics go, Flash's rogues gallery is second only to Batman's.

Along with all of the Carmine Infantino era villains above, there are also the newer guys like Murmur, Tar Pit, Double Down, Magenta, Girder, Fallout, Blacksmith, Cicada, The Suit, Cobalt Blue, Brother Grimm, Folded Man etc.

Thanks for the pics Ryan. That actually helped me realize why we haven't gotten more Flash rogues :lol:. They are a real motley crew. I still would like see the 4H give some of them the treatment.

I'll be honest, I'm not even sure how well Double Down would work as a toy! Cool character though. And if they go with Abra Kadabra they just have to use that classic design. =D

Yeah, the newer, shirtless, Sigfried and Roy-ian version just would be wrong.

And he wore his classic costume in Flash Rebirth anyway, so I think it's the one even new readers would be most familiar with.

The newer version was used in Young Justice, so they can always make a figure in that line.

If Mattel ever makes a Professor Zoom, then they should definitely include his lightning rod staff from Flash Rebirth as an accessory.
