There's going to be a hefty dose of good old fashioned slapstick comedy in next week’s episode of The Flash, which is set to introduce DC villain Hazard to the speedy superhero series. The lucky meta-human will wreak havoc in Central City by putting our heroes through the ringer, which in turn will lead to much hilarity (at least for us), as seen in the latest trailer.
In “Luck Be a Lady,” Barry (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash will face off against Rebecca Sharpe, aka Hazard, played by Sugar-Lyn Beard (Sausage Party), and suffer through a string of bad luck. Like the classic slipping on beads shtick. See, Hazard’s superpower is that she can give others bad luck while enjoying the benefits this creates for herself. The more bad luck someone has, the more good luck she has.
Created by Roy Thomas for the pages of DC Comics’ Infinity, Inc. #34, Hazard was a member of a group of supervillains called the Injustice Society. Which is really interesting because we know from the show's latest episode that Clifford DeVoe/The Thinker (Neil Sandilands) is looking to assemble a mysterious group of meta-humans. Does this mean the Injustice Society will make its debut in the Arrowverse this season?
But, that’s not all. “Luck Be a Lady” will feature the welcome return of Tom Cavanagh in the role of Earth-2's Harry Wells, who will swing by Earth-1 to deliver a message from his speedster daughter Jesse (Violett Beane) to Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale). Uh-oh. Is there trouble in paradise? As Iris (Candice Patton) says, “maybe we should burn some sage”?
Check out the trailer, and let us know what you think. The Flash airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. on The CW.
