Tonight's episode of The Flash introduces us to another rogue, Girder. Played by Greg Finley (Star-Crossed), Girder, aka Tony Woodward, has the ability to transform some or all of his body into metal (in the comics it's living iron, but the synopsis below says steel). He was created by Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver in The Flash: Iron Heights.

GREG FINLEY GUEST STARS AS DC COMICS' VILLAIN GIRDER — The Flash (Grant Gustin) faces a new meta-human named Tony (guest star Greg Finley, "Star-Crossed," "Secret Life of the American Teenager"), who can turn himself into girded steel at will. While Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) are concerned about Barry's safety, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) comes up with a plan to take Tony down. Meanwhile, Iris's (Candice Patton) blog on The Flash gets her into trouble, and Eddie (Rick Cosnett) witnesses Tony's abilities firsthand and begins to ask questions that Joe (Jesse L.
