Silver/Bronze Age Flash Rogue's Gallery - Favo(u)rites?

Post by MajorHoy on Wed Aug 13, 2014 12:53 am

Just because I think polls are fun, who were your favorite / favourite members of the classic Rogues Gallery from Silver / Bronze Age Flash? (Barry's first "run" as Flash.)

Of those in the poll, Mirror Master, Cold, Boomerang and the Glider. But I'd have voted for the Ringmaster and the Rainbow Raider if they'd been in there.

But those two weren't regularly part of the "Rogues' Gallery" of The Flash.

Rainbow Raider was, towards the end of the pre-COIE run.

I was never that keen on pre-Crisis Flash, but I liked some of the Rogues' later appearances, such as Pied Piper in Bill Loebs' Wally West run, Captain Boomerang in John Ostrander's Suicice Squad, and Grant Morrison's incarnation of Mirror Master in Animal Man.

Likewise. The only pre-Crisis Flash I really liked was Jay Garrick. Some of the villains were interesting, but they mostly got much more developed personalities in the late eighties. Boomerang in Suicide Squad in particular-he was one of the highlights of an already great book.

I personally enjoyed most of Cary Bates run as the writer on Flash in the 1970s into the early 1980s.

There were a few stories that stood out for me-the murder of Iris and the trial of the Flash being the obvious ones. But a lot of the time, Barry always seemed to me a rather bland character. Like the Silver Age Superman, he was too perfect to be interesting.

No clear favorites on this old poll.
Each of these rogues received two votes each:
* Captain Boomerang
* Captain Cold
* Golden Glider
* Mirror Master
And all the others listed each got a single vote.

Lucy and I have been binge watching the Flash TV show lately, and I have to say, Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell's portrayals of Captain Cold and Heat Wave in that show and Legends of Tomorrow have given me a greater appreciation of those characters.

The show's version of Mirror Master was crap, though.

Which one did they go with: Sam Scudder, the later Evan McCulloch, or some other version?

Rather interestingly, they went with Sam Scudder, but guest star Jay Garrick mentioned that his Earth already had a Mirror Master named Evan McCulloch.

Should have had his other identity as "David Cassidy". Cool

Oh, I did, too.

I just thought that naming him "David Cassidy" would be a nice wink-and-a-nod to that show.
(Besides, naming him "Keith Partridge" might be a little too obscure an acknowledgement for slightly younger viewers to get.)

Either way would be fine. Who'd know who David Cassidy was and also NOT know he was Keith Partridge?

It may just be an American thing.

Having looked it up, apparently it was quite popular over here, but I'm drawing a complete blank.

I may have blanked out quite a lot after being traumatised by public information films on the BBC. Google "the Spirit of Dark and Lonely Water" and you'll see what I mean...

You are not missing much. I love the Brady Bunch, but the Partridge Family just leaves me cold.

But the "Partridge Family" did put out some better music than the Brady Bunch.
(And then again, Dick and Tim did reference the Brady Bunch way back when Dick was Batman in an issue of Red Robin.)
