Violett Beane - Jesse Quick

Violett Beane

Yet another DC Comics hero will join The CW’s DCTV Universe, this time in the form of Jesse Quick played by Violett Beane (The Leftovers). Beane’s Jesse Quick will be introduced in the second season of The Flash as an ally to Barry Allen “who gets caught up” in his battle with a new enemy.

Jesse Quick, a speedster like Barry, was first introduced in 1992’s Justice Society of America #1. In the comics she is the daughter of the Golden Age heroes Johnny Quick and Liberty Belle. Since DC’s New 52 relaunch in 2011 the character has rarely been utilized, but has made recent appearances in the DC digital-first series Ame-Comi Girls and Injustice Gods Among Us.

Violett Beane’s Jesse Quick is said to be introduced as a “brilliant, quirky college student”, but whether or not this incarnation of the character will start out a speedster or even have superhero parents is yet to be revealed.

Season two of The Flash is set to premiere Tuesday, October 6 at 8/7c on The CW. What do you think of Violett Beane joining the cast as Jesse Quick? Feel free to let us know your thoughts in the comments and check out the latest promo poster for season two below.
