'Flash' episode introduces Elongated Man, Breacher
A major DC character was introduced in last night's episode of "The Flash" -- and an Oklahoman was involved in a major way.
In "Elongated Journey into Night," TV viewers are introduced to Ralph Dibny, who in the comics is the detective and crime-solver known as The Elongated Man, whose body can stretch like a rubber band, only moreso. While Dibny isn't called the Elongated Man in the episode, he does (SPOILER WARNING I SUPPOSE) develop stretching abilities as after he was affected by Barry's return from the speed force.
OU graduate Sterling Gates and Thomas Pound are the writers for the episode. Hartley Sawyer portrays Dibny.
Dibny's not the only new comics character introduced. Danny Trejo plays Breacher, the father of Gypsy (Jessica Camacho). And he doesn't take well to Gypsy's relationship with Vibe/Cisco (Carlos Valdes).
