Critic Consensus: "Magenta" cuts back on timeline devices and leans into The Flash's core strength - revealing the complicated depths of villains and heroes as humans.
Critic reviews for Magenta
Women are loved, on this show, but they're rarely given equal freedom or power. Wells letting go, and letting Jesse shine, was a long time coming.
But dont worry Flash fans, were not actually going to tackle mental illnesses or anything... I mean, I understand its a superhero show geared towards a younger audience, but you gotta come correct CW.
It's rare to see villains with real depth and pathos. But Magneta had pathos to spare, as she was less a real villain and more a confused, battered teenager led astray by a creepy dude in a bad Halloween costume.
The Metahuman of the Week story was also a nice twist from the usual beat-em-up.
