The CW's DC Universe grows a little bigger today with the announcement that actor Greg Finley has joined "The Flash" as Girder, one of the Scarlet Speedster's more recent rogues gallery additions.

Finley, a CW veteran who was last seen as a regular on the sci-fi series "Star-Crossed," will bring the villain to life in episodes 6 and 7 according to EW.com. His character, Tony Woodward, will receive the ability to transform his skin into 'living metal' thanks to an explosion at S.T.A.R. Labs. And there exists a bond between the show's hero and villain beyond the obvious super-powered similarities as, according to EW, "The Flash tries to stop Tony when he goes on a crime spree, but this is not the first time Barry Allen has faced Tony -- Tony was the bully who used to torment him as a child."

"The Flash" premieres on The CW Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 8PM.
