On one end of the CW DC Universe you have the mopey, shadow-filled world of Oliver Queen and Arrow. On the other end of the spectrum you have the anything-goes goofy party that is Legends of Tomorrow. And smack in the middle you have The Flash, which isn’t afraid to be silly yet puts its characters in some threatening situations.
In an upcoming episode revealed this week, Barry’s team will be up against a Metahuman who has the ability to switch people’s DNA around. How useful is that?

Watch for Speed Queen in “Run Iris Run,” the episode of The Flash airing March 13.
