Joey King Debuts as DC’s Metal-Controlling Magenta in The Flash
With as many villains as there are in the DC Universe, there is a wide array of potential scoundrels for The CW's DC-based shows. While the upcoming seasons of The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow will all have that "one unifying threat," they are also likely to have some of their own individual villains thrown into the mix.
The Flash Season 3 will be no exception. It has already been announced that the season 3 will feature Mirror Master, Doctor Alchemy, and The Top, but now one additional villain can be checked off the list: color-coordinated metal-controlling Magenta.
Comic Book reports that Independence Day: Resurgence's Joey King has been cast in the role of Magenta a.k.a. Frances "Frankie" Kane. King has also previously appeared in The Conjuring and season 1 of Fargo. She will be making her purplish-red debut in the third episode of The Flash's Season 3. Whether or not her character will recur for the rest of the season is still unclear - but with Magenta having been a member of the Rogues in the comics, it is a possibility.
In the CW series, Comic Book further states, Magenta is a teenage metahuman with a troubled past. Just like the popular "X-Men" scoundrel Magneto, Frankie has the ability to control metal. Her power, however, comes with a dangerous side-effect, causing her villainous alter-ego to emerge.
Check out the synopsis for the episode below:
"Barry and Team Flash are thrilled to reunite with Earth-2 Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Jesse (Violett Beane). Wells confides to Barry and Caitlin that Jesse has all the powers of a speedster and has been saving people on his Earth. He is concerned about her safety and wants them to talk her out of using her powers. Meanwhile, Magenta, a new meta who can control metal, terrorizes the city."
