In addition to the Oct. 4 premiere’s villain (who for lack of a specific moniker is the Weather Wizard) and the casting of Prison Break‘s Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, TVLine has learned that Episode 6 of the freshman action-drama will introduce the recurring character of Tony Woodward aka Girder.

Per DC Comics lore, Woodward was a bratty steelworker who upon being dunked in a vat of molten metal that had been tainted by S.T.A.R. Labs waste emerged as a mass of iron, impervious to most anything (save for rust. No, really).
The CW series’ casting call for the recurring role describes the character as someone who used to bully young Barry in the schoolyard. Now, as a result of a twist of fate, Woodward is “a grinning lunkhead who loves destruction,” an “unstoppable force… who can transmute any part of his body into solid steel.”
