    Interesting. But hmm, what rival company could that be? Kord Industries or perhaps Palmer Technologies?

  2. L says:

    I really need to rewatch my dvd of the original series before this one starts… It was cool for its time. Hope she gets a scene with Shipp.

  3. Dare I say it, Wayne Enterprises?

  4. Mo says:

    This makes me happy.

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Cool two of stars of 90s The Flash show will be on new one.

  6. Ken says:

    LOVED her in Max Headroom!

  7. Briggs says:

    They *did* say Arrow couldn’t use Ted Kord because there were ‘other plans’ for him. Perhaps this is what they meant? There have been plenty of Easter Eggs for him, and he’s noted for being a science guy, moreso than other, more popular heroes (or villains). He was one of the guys in monitor duty while the JLA went out and kicked butt. I think he should get some airtime, too. I’m excited for the world they’re building between The Flash and Arrow. It makes for some big team-ups (or smaller ones) later on. I’m on board with this plan.

    Want to bet there will be a seen where Shipp meets her and one of them will say ‘Have we met before?”?

  9. I like what you guys tend to be up too. This kind
    of clever work and coverage! Keep up the excellent works guys I’ve included you
