The Flash: 1st Movie, Part 3
We have Captain Cold's character and motivation covered, but why are the other Rogues here and what are they like?
Golden Glider wants to stay close with her brother, and wants to prove to herself that she is strong, capable, and dangerous. I would include her and Cold's backstory of overcoming their abusive father together. It should be briefly covered, with full details coming in a sequel movie.
Heat Wave would stay the fire-loving, challenger of authority we all know. However, instead of him purposefully burning his childhood home and family, I would have have it be an accident. A young pyro-maniac who could not control a fire he started, and is then haunted as the only survivor. Growing up in the system, in and out of juvenile hall, he is constantly reminded of his mistake. Gradually, he turned more and more to the only thing that made him feel alive; fire.
Weather Wizard will be based on his current comic version. He will be a 1st generation American born to a low-income working class Hispanic family, having been raised in a impoverished urban neighborhood. WW was dissatisfied with the economic struggle his parents endured, and the lack of social acceptance his family faced due to their illegal immigrant origins. He rebels against a society he deems unfair, and joins a local gang to seek financial gain. Over the years, he has become a hardened criminal, dedicated to taking his due from Central City.
Turbine is a bit different. He was a Tuskegee Airman (African-American pilot group in WW2) who was sucked into the Speed Force while on a mission. After a number of years, he was randomly dropped into present day, finding his body altered. All he wants is to go back to his time, when his loved ones were alive. This group of empowered people have gathered, maybe with their help he can go home, and he is willing to do just about anything to go home.
