Actor Adam Stafford has been cast in the role of Adam Fells, also known as the DC Comics villain Geomancer, in the forthcoming thirteenth and fourteenth episodes of The Flash's second season, ComicBook.com has confirmed exclusively with the studio.
In the comics, Geomancer is foe of the Justice Society's, co-created by DC Chief Creative Officer and The Flash executive producer Geoff Johns. Adam Fells was a big fish in a small pond until he joined up with the Injustice Society and bad things started to befall him, building to his death. A successor came along, taking up the name and costume, but didn't make many appearances before the New 52 reboot.
In the TV series, Geomancer is described as "a dangerous meta-human with the unique ability to create earthquakes. Intent on destroying the Flash, Geomancer uses his powers to unleash a string of targeted earthquakes, optimistic that he'll draw out the Flash for a mano-a-mano fight to see who's the most powerful metahuman in Central City."
The Flash returns on January 19 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. Geomancer's episodes will show up a few weeks later.
