Katee Sackhoff joins The Flash as Blacksmith!

“Starbuck” herself Katee Sackhoff is set to join The Flash as Amunet Black, aka Blacksmith.

Created by Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver, Blacksmith first appeared in Flash: Iron Heights in August 2001. In the comic Blacksmith runs “the Network,” an underground black market in Central and Keystone City, for super-villains to buy, sell, or move contraband.

At one point she was married to Goldface but they divorced soon after and she stole the elixir that gave Goldface his powers and changed it to gain the ability to merge metal with flesh and shape it to her will. She was able to keep the Network hidden from the authorities and if any villain reformed or quit crime, she made sure the memories of the Network were erased from their minds. She was also married to Hunter Zoloman aka Zoom at one point!
