"The Flash" - Enter 'Hazard'

According to VancouverFilm.Net, Season 4 of "The Flash" will showcase the live-action debut of DC Comic's metahuman 'Rebecca Sharpe' aka 'Hazard', played by actress Sugar Lyn Beard:

"...'Rebecca Sharpe' perpetually down-on her luck, is convinced her life is cursed... 

"...until a freak accident changes everything.

"With the universe on her side, she poses a threat to both 'Team Flash' and 'Central City'."

Created by Roy Thomas, debuting in DC Comics' "Infinity Inc." #34, Hazard has 'psionic' powers she uses in conjunction with special dice to influence probability.

She can cause good luck or harmful 'accidents' to befall someone. The origin of her powers, nature of her dice, and the relationship between them are unknown. In addition, she keeps herself in good physical condition.

Other DC characters appearing in "the Flash" Season 4 include 'The Elongated Man' (Hartley Sawyer), 'The Thinker' (Neil Sandilands), 'The Mechanic' (Kim Engelbrecht) and 'Breacher' (Danny Trejo).

'The Elongated Man', aka 'Ralph Dibny' debuted in DC Comics' "The Flash" Vol. 1, #112 (May 12, 1960), created by writer John Broome and penciler Carmine Infantino, as a detective who loves odd mysteries.

As a teenager, Dibny was fascinated by contortionists, discovering that body-benders drank a soda derived from the 'gingo' fruit of the Yucatan. Creating his own drink, he gained elasticity powers, similar to 'Plastic Man' and 'Mr. Fantastic', aka 'Reed Richards' from Marvel's "Fantastic Four".

'The Thinker', aka 'Clifford DeVoe' debuted in DC's "All-Flash" #12, created by Gardner Fox and E.E. Hibbard, as a failed lawyer who bitterly ended his career. Realizing that many of the criminals he had encountered had the skills but not the brains to rule the 'Gotham City' underworld, he started a new career as their leader.

As the Thinker, he sought new scientific devices to use including the 'Thinking Cap', a metal hat that could project mental force.

'The Machanic', aka 'Thomas "Pieface" Kalmaku', created by John Broome and Gil Kane, debuted in "Green Lantern" Vol. 2, #2 (Oct. 1960)... a young 'Inuit' mechanic at 'Ferris Aircraft'.

'Breacher', aka 'Quell Mordeth' was exposed to inter-dimensional energies., forcing him to live within a special suit, with the ability to teleport between dimensions.
