“The Flash” Casts Its First Female Speedster
Soap star Allison Paige has been cast as Eliza Harmon, a.k.s. “Trajectory,” and will make her debut in an episode later this year.
Trajectory was the name of a short-lived heroine introduced during the “52” crossover event a few years ago. A lifelong fan of the Flash, Harmon volunteered for Lex Luthor’s “Everyman” project and received the gift of super-speed with the hope of one day becoming the new Kid Flash. Her story was cut tragically short when Luthor intentionally removed her powers during a battle with the supervillain Blockbuster.
The television version of Trajectory will give the Flash plenty of difficulty when she arrives in Central City and creates super-powered chaos — chaos that is blamed on the Flash.
Paige’s version of Trajectory will make her television debut on the CW in Episode 16 of season 2 of The Flash.
