Things are about to get explosive on The Flash.

The Nov. 11 episode of The CW superhero series introduces the DC Comics villainess Plastique, aka Bette Sans Souci (played by Kelly Frye). Like Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), Bette, a former bomb disposal expert in Iraq, gained a super power as a result of the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator disaster. In her case it's the ability to turn any object she touches into an explosive device.

"On the run from the shadow forces in the U.S. government trying to turn her into a human weapon," says executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, "she finds an ally in fellow meta-human: The Flash."

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
