Raijin, the self proclaimed "God of Lightning" is a mysterious armored individual who was seemingly behind the Speed Force storm that rained down upon Central City.
The man who would become Raijin was a scientist at S.T.A.R. Labs who was obsessed with the Speed Force. Grodd corrupted him, however, and either provided him with or created him to create the lightning wand. The wand purportedly allows its user to control and study the Speed Force.
He later recruits Multiplex and Gorilla Grodd in his campaign against the Flash just as he reveals himself to Barry as the leader of the Black Hole.
- Electrokinesis: Raijin can generate large amounts of electrical energy that he may draw from the Speed Force. He can also seemingly travel through bolts of lightning.
