FLASH NEWS: The A.T.O.M is Coming to Town...And A New Villain?!?
That's right folks! Producer Andrew Kreisberg has said the following on the matter:
storyline. It’s fine because… Ray Palmer is all about technology and STAR Labs is all about technology. We get to see Ray so happy to be in STAR Labs… With Cisco [Carlos Valdes] and Ray, they’re new best friends. The STAR Labs team is going to help Ray further his ATOM project."
This was confirmed to be in the 18th episode of the show, we then heard the following from him about the same episode:
"Episode 18 will unleash on Central City a bee-a-utiful tech wizard who rocks oversized shades and red lipstick… and has devised a clever-slash-amoral-slash-wildly unstable scheme to weaponize bee-sized ‘bots."
Who do you think it could be? I for one think it could be the Atom villain known as the "Bug-Eyed Bandit", but seeing as the character is quite unknown, they may have taken the liberty to change the character's gender to female, that would explain the red lipstick.
