Very Cool.

Jesse Quick when done well is a neat character, who doesn't want to be defined by love, her powers or her heroism or anything except herself. Shes usually in the background, and DC never gave her that much to do( in some ways shes a tricky character to write in character) but if fhasl can do it that would be cool. Hope they give her more to do then be the super of the weak.

She seems like good casting so far (judging on all we have to go on, looks). I assume they'd not have hired her unless she could do the acting part well.

let's hope they use her a more than a one-shot -- and remember that she has super strength (though she won't be the Jessie Quick from the comics likely, who is the daughter of two heroes.).

I always like her father (and her) -- as they earned their speed. Her father developed a formula (mathematical) that gave him speed and he taught it to her. So likely he learned something that activated his latent meta gene -- but I like the fact that science/thinking/learning, rather than an accident gave him his powers. Mostly the people this is true for have mechanical based powers (Iron Man/Star Man/etc) . The FF/Hulk/Superman/Spider-Man/Green Lantern these are all "accidents" (others are born with them, which is another kind of "accident"), and none of them earned their powers in any way. They may prove "worthy" of them, but they aren't earned.

Someone who LEARNED her powers, she'd be someone who would be more independent. So it makes sense that she didn't drop her life just to be a hero full time because she had powers. I like that. (Though I think she had her super-strength before she had her speed, though my memory is telling me that perhaps this fact changes across time, and it's been true and not true at various re-tellings)

She was also (briefly) the Flash.

I would comment, that not knowing anything, i suspect that this is the time of the show where they introduce "Hey there used to be heroes" plotline. Smallville went to that well. Jesse Quick by herself may be a way of playing with that. Flash Comics have done a lot iwth "Different generations of Flashes characters" which they maybe introducing here.

That said-if its just Jesse her self who creates not a mechanical, but a mathemical way of introducing Super Speed that would be really cool.

Given that it seem that Flash season two would rely heaily on a "other times/other dimensions" kind of deal I wouldn't be surprised if they introduce Jesse as a distaff counterpart from a different universe.

I wouldn't be surprised if they have her coming from an alternate timeline, since from what I've read that will be a major theme this season.

Did not know she has super strength, very pleasant surprise as super speed alone doesn't do much for me :)

What level of strength are we talking here?

I do hope they let her actually use it .

Canadagraphs.com claims, via their Twitter page that they saw actress Violett Beane in costume as Jesse Quick on the set of Flash. Sadly, they have no photos to prove it.

On her Instagram page, Bane herself posted a pic of herself wearing a workout outfit wile wearing a strange looking cap on her head. CGI scan for her Flash costume? Prototype Jesse Quick outfit or training gear?

I know they announce these things way ahead of time but I for one like avoid these posts as not to spoil the episode.
I should have known better and not read this post.

While I agree with spoilers, in defense to AJF, I don't think in this case it's much of a spoiler since its in the official 3.3 show description released by CW:

I was speaking as a general topic.

Wasn't it great to see Ant Man become Giant Man in Civil War?
Just imagine that scene knowing ahead of time that that would happen.

You can just imagine how COOL it would have been if they would have kept the wraps on Spiderman's appearance.

Flash first episode last no was so GOOD!

Those guys really embrace the "Comic Book" in their production.
My favorite show on TV right now.
