Biography

Original timeline

Freddy in the original timeline.

In 1989, Freddy was invited to prom by Tiffany Harper, unbeknownst to him in order to prank him. He was ultimately humiliated by a jock named Brad, with trash dumped over his head. With his invitation to the prom, Freddy's mother believed him to be popular, and thus he was being "taken away" from her. Due to this, she killed all of his classmates except Tiffany, with Freddy taking the fall for it.[1]

Freddy was sentenced to prison in Iron Heights Penitentiary, and on June 4, 2004, he was executed by the electric chair. Kathy died of a heart attack afterwards, before being given a second chance by Astra Logue.

Current timeline

In 1989, Freddy was invited to prom by Tiffany Harper, unbeknownst to him in order to prank and humiliate him. Ray Palmer and Nate Heywood attempted to prevent him from going to prom to prevent an untimely future (wrongly believing him to be the Encore) while posing as new teachers, but they failed.

While getting ready for the dance at home, Freddy was surprised by Nora Darhk, who revealed herself to be his Fairy Godmother, and gave him three wishes: Freddy wished for a new suit and a "pony" (a metaphor for a nice car), resulting in him showing up to the dance in style and wowing Tiffany. As Freddy danced with Tiffany, his dance moves and natural charm won her over, making Tiffany forgo the plan and enjoy the prom with him.

Brad was angered by this, revealing the entire plan to Freddy, who ran off in anger. Nora told Freddy not to give into his demons; revealing that she once did, but it was only when she allowed others in that she was able to show her true self. Encouraged to use his last wish to show his true self, Freddy wished to perform Supersonic onstage with Nora DJing. Brad attempted to the prank, but Nora turned the trash into harmless things. Everyone in the auditorium was charmed by it and joined in. Because of this, he gained some popularity.

They eventually all left the prom and ended up in the same limo as Zari Tarazi. Before their limo could leave, they were attacked by Freddy's mother in a mask. Kathy managed to wound one of the girls before being knocked down by Behrad Tarazi's wind attack. Unlike the original timeline, Freddy's newfound romance with Tiffany gave him the strength to leave his mother to face her crimes; he admitted she needed help.

In 2004, Freddy and Tiffany attended their reunion showing they were now married. Catching sight of Nora after all these years, Freddy smiled gratefully at her, while Tiffany showed off her wedding ring.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • Freddy Meyers's name is an amalgamation of iconic horror villains Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers.
    • Meyers being subjected to public humiliation during prom night is a reference to Carrie, while his toxic relationship with his murderous mother refers to that between Jason and Pamela Voorhees from Friday the 13th.
      • His mother's use of a "creepy mask" is also a reference to Jason Voorhees & Michael Myers. His mother Kathy Meyers is like Norma Bates in Psycho.
