The origin of Super Villians: Girder

Girder is a DC Comics supervillain and a new Rogue to the Flash (Wally West). He first appeared in Flash: Iron Heights (2001) and was created by Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver.[1]

Girder made his live-action debut on the first season of The Flash, portrayed by Greg Finley.

Fictional character biography
Steelworker Tony Woodward caused a riot at a steel plant after he assaulted a female employee. Angry coworkers threw Tony into a vat of molten steel. The liquid steel included recycled scraps from experiments performed by S.T.A.R. Labs. These scraps somehow turned Tony's body into living metal, which has incredible resistance from harm and grants him superhuman strength.[1] The major drawback was that the steel body began to rust when exposed to oxygen. He was eventually arrested for robbery and sent to Iron Heights.[1]

After escaping Iron Heights, he joined up with Blacksmith and her Rogues to take over Keystone City and Central City. While a member of her Rogues, Magenta used her powers to keep Girder from rusting and Girder, having an "attraction", made unwanted advances towards her. After making another crude pass, Magenta ripped Girder in half. His body was welded back together and Girder was taken back to Iron Heights.

During the Infinite Crisis, Girder was part of the Secret Society of Super Villains led by Alexander Luthor, Jr. (who was posing as Lex Luthor).[2]

One Year Later, Girder was seen fighting the Teen Titans, but was defeated. He was later seen in Salvation Run.[1]

In the DC Special: Cyborg mini-series, Girder has joined The Cyborg Revenge Squad.

Girder was among the villains in the ambush of the Justice Society of America led by Tapeworm.[3]

While Girder is in custody at Iron Heights Penitentiary, he is broken out by Captain Boomerang to distract the guards so Captain Boomerang can sneak in to meet with Professor Zoom.[4]
