The Flash Gives Major Shout-Out to DC Writer Gail Simone

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for "Gone Rogue," the latest episode of The Flash.

The Flash just gave DC writer Gail Simone her due. In "Gone Rogue," the latest episode, Nora West-Allen stole blueprints from a company named after her.

In the very opening of the episode, Nora headed straight for G. Simone & Associates: Architecture, Planning, Interiors. There, she took the blueprints for McCulloch Technologies off the server, then fried it with her Speed Force lightning. She used these blueprints to break into McCulloch Tech in order to steal a very specific piece of meta tech, with which she hopes to destroy Cicada's dagger.

Simone, of course, can be credited with bringing Rag Doll into the spotlight. In her cult classic run on The Secret Six with Dale Eaglesham, Rag Doll was an integral member of the team; the character quickly became a DC fan favorite after her run. Since Rag Doll was featured heavily in "Gone Rogue," it makes sense for Simone to get such a major shout-out.

Her major credits include Birds of Prey, Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Red Sonja, Batgirl, Deadpool, Leaving Megalopolis and Clean Room. She recently wrote Domino for Marvel Comics and now serves as chief architect for Lion Forge's superhero line, which makes her Flash namedrop all the more fitting.
