THE FLORONIC MAN - Jason Woodrue went through a few transformations before his stint in Swamp Thing turned him into something more than a simple villain. Will we see him again? It's possible he might return to Swamp Thing, but I don't think it'll happen before the end of the year.
FORAGER - another Kirby creation but one which, I think, we'll be unlikely to see again.
FOREVER PEOPLE - as I said in the entry for Beautiful Dreamer (and please excuse me quoting myself) "the Forever People, are great examples of how embedding characters' looks, behaviour and speech patters in a particular time frame utterly date them. I can't see any of them coming back any time soon."
THE FORGOTTEN HEROES - obviously these characters get dealt with in their own entries so I'm not going to list them all here. Safe to say, though, that grouping together as a team called the Forgotten Heroes isn't going to happen.
THE FORGOTTEN VILLAINS - and the same applies here. Don't bet on seeing these folks banding together.
FUNKY FLASHMAN - unless we get Mr Miracle back, I think it's a safe bet to say that the Stan Lee parody won't be seeing the light of day.
FURY - with so little revealed about when Earth-2 will be set (at least at the time of writing in mid-Feb) it's hard to guess whether Fury or any of her team-mates in Infinity Inc will appear. However, I'm going to take a punt and say Fury's a possible.
THE GAMBLER - can't see this old time villain turning up either.
THE GANG - the colour coded team of Supergirl villains that nobody remembers.
GARGUAX - an old Doom Patrol villain. Even if we get the team back (and I'd like that) I really can't see them facing off against an alien with "highly advanced weaponry" any time soon.
So in summary, one already in place (E-1 Flash), one definite prediction (E-2 Flash) and one possible (Fury)
