The Mist on the Flash TV Series

If I wanted to I believe I could dedicate an entire blog to the ever expanding Flash TV universe. So many characters have been introduced in this first season that it is taking me some time just to keep up. Case in point, The Mist who appeared earlier this season on the episode "Things You Can't Outrun." You can view all the other characters in ourFlash Character Guide.

Created by Gardner Fox and James Robinson, the Mist made his first apperance in Adventure Comics #67 where he battled Starman in the story "The menace of the invisible raiders." This issue which is rare sells for around $3500.

About the Mist
The orinal Mist's name was Kyle Nimbus. He was a Canadian Army Captain who fought in World War 1. Nimbus was also a scientist. He created a device that turned his body into a gaseous form. He became a supervillain, a fought both the Golden Age Sandman and the Golden Age Starman. He also battled the modern day Starman. The Mist had two children, Nash and Kyle.

On the Flash TV Show
Portrayed by Anthony Carrigan, Kyle Nimbus/The Mist was a mob hit-man, who was charged with murder and placed on death row.  As he was being executed via the gas chamber the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator exploded, giving him his elemental abilities. He then goes on a killing spree to exact revenge on those that put him in prison,  the last attempt was on Joe West, his arresting officer. The Flash defeats The Mist after keeping him in his gas state for an overextended amount of time, weakening him to the point of unconsciousness. The Mist is then locked away in thr metahuman prison.

It is really noise to see the writers of the Flash using both old and new villians in the series. Hopefully we will see the Golden Age Flash at some point.
So if you are continuing to build your Flash first appearance collection this one is both difficult to find and costly so good luck.

Good Luck on Your Hunt!
