FLASH NEWS: Synopsis for S01E11 "The Sound and the Fury"
Name: Hartley Rathaway
Codename: Pied Piper
-Prior to crime he was a deaf musical prodigy
-Initially was part of the Rogues
-Eventually reformed and became a vigilante
-One of the first openly homosexual characters in DC Comics, something I defiantly think, and hope the CW does with their character, it would show a huge step in how diversification in comics can really make the jump to the real world
Flute - Rathaway has crafted his own sophisticated flute capable of hypnotizing anyone within range of its sound. He can make anyone do what ever he wants of them, and can even make himself 'invisible' to other's perception. Initially this technique only worked on humans, but during his incarceration in Iron Heights, he has perfected it to work on rats as well, adding another similarity to his legendary namesake. Later, he learned to manipulate technology.
Sonic Devices - Rathaway also employs a number of devices that can generate or amplify sound for destructive purposes.
Sonic Tuning Fork - capable of sending out a sound the causes paralysis in those who hear it.
