The Flash is putting a twist on the Bug-Eyed Bandit. The Walking Dead alum Emily Kinney has been tapped to play the typically male DC Comics villain, EW has confirmed.

Kinney will portray Brie Larvan, known in the comics as Bertram Larvan, a.k.a. the Bug-Eyed Bandit, a foe of The Atom (Brandon Routh). The character, a narcissistic tech wizard wreaking havoc in Central City, will appear in the same episode that Arrow’s Ray Palmer and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) visit S.T.A.R. Labs to get help with Ray’s suit. Felicity recognizes Brie as her nemesis, and the two women engage in a hacker battle for The Flash’s life.  

Kinney, who was killed off The Walking Dead this season, also recently signed on for a guest spot on ABC’s Forever.

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
