I think making her powers sufficiently sucky would do that job perfectly. Imagine being perpetually cold, unable to generate your own heat, and only able to survive by stealing the molecular movement of others to such a degree they die and freeze solid. The throw in how your new powers make you not just a threat to pretty much every person ever, but also a weapon against your loved one.

Killer Frost doesn't neccesarily need to be initially malevolent and full of malice. Just have her power gain lead to tragedy, and you're ready to go.

Just wanted to pop in and say that I think Panabaker's acting has gotten a lot better recently.

How I want the inevitable Killer Frost arc to go.

Snow becomes meta-human > Snow gets scared because she can't control her powers (collateral damage, unintended casualties) > villain arc vs team Flash > Firestorm's power cancels out her frost/vampiric tendencies > reconciliation with Ronnie and team Flash > Killer Frost and Firestorm become OTP heroic battle couple.

Fin.

I would be more than a little leery of the "heat vampire" concept being played straight. Bluntly, there is no good reason why she should *only* be able to drain heat from people, and not from, say. . . a fire. Or a heater. Or any other source of heat. Which would still be a legitimate disability ( needing to step into a furnace every couple hours to keep from getting hypothermia is at minimum inconvenient ), it would just avoid the "I must magically kill people and become a villain, for reasons that make no sense."

Who wants to see Panabaker dress up as Elsa if she turns into Killer Frost?

Unfortunately, wrong company. Frozen I'd with Disney who is firmly in Team Marvel.

Yeah, I think between whatever happens when her abilities first manifest, what happens when the heater goes out and what happens when she has to get away from heat to save someone's life or something, I think she could get 'evil' in a certain way... perhaps only killing bad people or something.

That may be a bit much, legally. Still, some nod seems necessary.

Killer Frost: "Snart! Get away from me!"
Captain Cold: "Why? Don't you want to build a snowman?"

Since Heatwave seems to be he more "goofy" of the, it might be better if he did it:

Killer Frost: "Why would I EVER join you two and your little gang of psychopaths?"
Heatwave: "Come on kid, you're a walking blizzard and people are scared of you. Why not cut loose and have a little fun for once? You just to let it go."

Maybe only an act of true love can save Caitlin.

If she got with Oliver, she could be Snow Queen.

Well Oliver is such a manwhore that I can see actually see that happening.

Oliver: "Well she's attractive, in a scary sort of way."
Diggle: "Oliver, she's literally a vampire who lives off of heat. You go anywhere near her and it'll kill you."
Oliver: "Hmm good point, but I can maybe make it work. Have you seen some of my other ex's?"
Felicity: "Yeah, you have a thing for broken or crazy women."
Diggle: "Damn straight. It's really not healthy dude."

I feel like that aspect of Oliver has disappeared. Even in Flashbacks...

Then the only way to get Snow Queen is for Caitlin to get with Thea!

Well she's already a better love interest for her than the DJ.

If Caitlin bails on her and goes back to Ronnie, Thea can call her a Snow flake.

Thank you DC for making your ice-based character's last name "Snow." It makes the jokes so much easier

Until Candice gets a better chance to display her talents better in the role of "Iris", I still feel unto this day that Danielle would have made a better choice for the role of Iris.

They probably should've waited to introduce Iris. These shows should always wait now to introduce the main love interest, because having them there from the beginning doesn't seem to work out in most cases on the CW and feels forced, and the chemistry is never there.

I don't know if Danielle had played Iris from the start whether she would've suffered from the same problem.

Perhaps and you're right about how they've mishandled the character so far (in some ways).

I just can't understand on why shows like Gotham, Arrow, and Flash have to introduce the canon love interests in such a overly dramatic way, where the obstacles that they place in front of the show's leads do more harm than good when it comes to gaining fan support for those pairings.

It was bad enough that Iris was introduced as Barry's Foster Sister, but to have him crazy about her right off the bat was the bigger mistake.

I think when it comes to introducing and handling canon "endgame" love interests, "Smallville" did it best regarding how they handled the development of Clark's relationship with Lois.

Ironically enough, the only reason why they held off in making Lois and Clark into a romantic pair was because of restrictions that they were given from the film division.lol

Honestly, if they have Iris go after Barry and just dump Eddie on the side, with his potential turn to villainy or distaste for Barry/Flash being as a result of that, then they make both Iris and Barry look bad as a result.

Think Panabaker has proven in the last few episodes I have watched that she can act. I never had an issue with her acting anyway but she has had some good dramatic moments lately and played as drunk very well.

I knew Danielle from her work on "Shark" before when she was younger, so I knew she could act. She had to hold her own against James Woods.

The Barry/Iris romance subplot is definitely my least favorite thing in the show. If they didn't want their relationship to happen anytime soon, they should have not written her in so soon.
