Genuinely interested why this character was chosen for the villain roster. Im only mildly into comics, the only main Flash villain I really know about is Gorilla Grodd. Did Captain Cold have a resurgence in popularity or something? (e.g Whilst Scarecrow has always been considered one of Batmans main rogues, it was his teenie tiny moment in Batman: Arkham Asylum that rapidly reignited his popularity enough to become the main antagonist of the third game and be in this game)
Or is this a random character chosen who has manage to fit remarkably well
Bart-Mangled Banner is the greatest Simpsons episode. It is great for the exact same reason american audiences hate it: because it captures them so accurately.

Even though I don't work for NRS and I'm not Ed Boon, I'm pretty confident that they didn't choose him or any character at random.

He's popular with comics readers and he's getting casual exposure with the CW Flash show. Which still makes me wonder why Killer Frost got cut.

He's a pretty big villain in the flash comics and probably from the Flash and Legends of Tomorrow CE shows. That's probably why. Mr. Freeze iconically is much more popular but the game didn't need another Batman Villian imo

No knowledge of all the evil speedsters (eg. Reverse Flash)?

I know 'of' them, not what their deals are.

My guess is they wanted a cold/freeze guy and felt the roster was already overloaded with Batman characters, so they went to the next logical backup. Since he's basically the same thing as Mr. Freeze gave them an easy option to have a premier skin, rather than try to shoehorn Killer Frost into other characters.

I feel like both he and Firestorm made the roster mostly because of Legends of Tomorrow.

Not surprising for rosters to promote ongoing TV shoes and new movies. Marvel is constantly shoving the GotG and Avengers down everyones throats.

Captain Cold has been Flash's archenemy for a while now (besides Reverse Flash). It's not surprising really.
Live long and prosper.
