Flash Facts – “Magenta”
It’s not Magenta; it’s light-ish red!
Magenta is a showcase for a lesser known Rogue (one of Wally’s Rogues at that) but also gives the villain-of-the-week a rather unique quirk that, unfortunately, goes absolutely nowhere.
Also Wells and Jesse are back! And Jesse’s quick now! Geddit? Oh boy, you know what that means! Talking. Lots and lots of ineffectual and un-fun talking. Sure there’s jokes but Wells is dad-ing too hard and we know she’s going to suit up so why delay it?
But let’s get to the meat of the episode with our villain; Magenta. Frankie Kane is an interesting character and Joey King’s performance isreally engaging but she isn’t given nearly enough time to flesh out and fully develop the character.
Flash Fact: This is Joey King’s second role in a live-action DC production; having previously played a younger Talia al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises.
If there’s one thing I have to say negatively about Frankie, it’s that she is basically my ex-girlfriend in all but name and accent. It’s uncanny and a little uncomfortable to say the least but, regardless, Joey gives a fantastic performance for a sadly limited character.
