In most of the episodes of The Flash
, the villains are given an interesting name by folks on the the Flash's team, mostly Cisco, but also Barry and others. The villains are based on villains that are well known from the world of DC comics.
I don't know, it's a little tricky when these two current TV shows (The Flash
), that are based on DC Comics, have a character appear with the same name as a particular villain of an earlier DC Comics-based TV series (the DC animated series, Batman, The Bold and the Brave: The Mayhem of the Music Meister
). Also, the Music Meister made an appearance in a comic book based on the same animated series. So it's not a surprise that some folks (including some of those who wrote reviews of the episode) who know about the MM character from the earlier DC animated TV series, and from the comic book for that earlier series, may have formed certain expectations.
I'm not a big DC comics fan, so I personally don't really care that much if the character in The Flash
musical episode strays from the Music Meister character of the animated series and its comic book.
However, I did enjoy how colorful the character was in the animated series, and I would have loved if that was even more of an emphasis in this musical crossover episode. Just my own personal preference. (I'm sure others may disagree.) The costume is just one detail. I really did think the musical crossover episode was wonderfully executed, and I enjoyed immensely Darren's portrayal of the character on the show. I think both Darren and the show runners of The Flash
did a fantastic job!
