Honestly, I don't see how "realistic" (or rather using today's equivalent to lightning and science goo, as far as not being well understood by the public) is mutually exclusive from "interesting".

After all, it's not really the method itself that is ever the most intriguing component to a hero's origins, but rather the circumstances around it and the storylines that unlock from it that are. Yes, Spider-Man got his powers after getting bitten by a radioactive spider. But it's only through Uncle Ben's death that a hero was born.

I've seen some pics floating around of Bex Taylor-Klaus (Bullet from The Killing) running around with Colton Haynes on the set of Arrow. Anyone know who she'll be playing!?!?

http://vancityfilming.com/arrow-colt...-taylor-klaus/

Nevermind, the homepage now has the news: Looks like she is playing Sin!

They could easily have the lightning bolt work. What if Barry has like a side project where he's seeing the effects electricity has on certain chemicals. Maybe he needs more juice and uses a lightning rod, it goes wrong and ZOOM.

Also lets not forget the lightning bolt is symbolic, its the reason he wears it on his chest.

Barry trying to use a lightning bolt to power his experiment would make him an idiot. However, maybe if he was conducting some kind of experiment to create a new source of electrical power (green project), that could make for an interesting origin.

How would it? An experiment is just that an experiment, one times you have to try crazy wacky things to get results.

As I said above if its not lightning then what's the point of the symbol.

Actually, lightning is one of the more plausible explanations (if there is such a thing) they can use for superspeed.

When lightning strikes, it excites the molecules in the atmosphere so much that it breaks apart these atoms where they then collide and form new combinations, such as Ozone.

I can see lightning [or some other VERY powerful electrical discharge] reacting with some other experiment Barry is conducting where it places his molecules in a permanent [but controllable] state of excitement. Might also explain his ability to vibrate through other molecules if they give him that powerset on the show.

I rather Barry be working on something involving the speed force being the reason he becomes the Flash.

Except many, many people have been struck by lightning or zapped by electricity, and even more are familiar with its consequences. Generally, it's just death or pain.

This is one of the worst arguments I've ever read.

How many people have been bitten by spiders? Or exposed to radiation? Or had their parents murdered? Hell, even genetic manipulation, which you are such a big fan of, is a real thing and we still don't have any superheroes. There's always something extra in the mix.

Stop trying to rationalize how somebody gets super powers. By their very definition, they aren't realistic. Even within the context of Arrow, it wouldn't make sense. That's what makes it fun.

It will be interesting to see what her connection to Roy and Laurel is. It would be cool if this meant that we'll see Lady Shiva some time in the future.

Well the two could easily be connected. Just have his investigations leading too him needing something like lightning to power his experiments.

I would hope so, but, considering the relationship the network had with the studio over said character, I am not going to give into the excitement that the title evokes...yet.

I doubt they'd actually have him appear onscreen, but I could definitely see them alluding to his presence.

Can you imagine the kind of crazy that would happen if Neeson were cast?
