Season 7 of The Flash apparently created a new hero taking Ralph’s place on the team. Force’s chosen avatar, Alexa Rivera (Sara Garcia), was killed by the human incarnation of the Speed Force in episode 8, but it seems that her story is not yet over.
After reaching a revelation about his connection to the other speed forces, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) resurrected Force. What happened next was not shown, but a promo for episode 10 showed Team Flash training Alexa on how to properly control Force power.
Since the Speed Force still plans to rid the world of the other three forces, Alexa’s life will remain in danger in season 7 of The Flash. For that reason, it makes perfect sense that she has to stay with the Flash team for a while. and she learns to use her new powers.
As with Ralph in The Flash, it could be that after training with Barry, Alexa ends up jumping into action and fighting alongside her against metahuman villains. If that happens, Force could become a new Arrowverse superhero.
After all, in DC Comics he’s a hero too. If he finds out that this is the life he wants, his presence in The Flash team could be long-lasting. That could be good for Barry and the others.
Especially since the super strength that he possesses as a Force would certainly be an important asset for them in battle. The next episode of the seventh installment of The Flash will air on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 on The CW.
