"We're all reflections. Faster, stronger than our human counterparts whose faces we share."
"Iris West-Allen" to Ramsey Rosso[src]

Mirror duplicates, also known as reflections,[1] were mirror copies created by Eva McCulloch as replacements for their Earth-Prime counterparts.

History

Eva McCulloch of McCulloch Technologies was blasted with energy after the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator exploded and she crashed into a mirror there. She was killed, but a mirror duplicate of her was created and thought that it was the original.[2]

At some point, Eva created a duplicate of Sam Scudder. This being was her first experience at creating mirror duplicates.[2]

After Iris West-Allen was trapped in the Mirrorverse, "Iris West-Allen" was created as a replacement, identical to Iris but with better abilities. [3]

Later when Kamilla Hwang discovered the true form of "Iris" with the prismatic filter in her camera, "Iris" shot her with the mirror gun and Eva created a reflection to replace the real Kamilla, whom she sent with "Iris" to find the prismatic refractor.[4]

Sometime after the Crisis, David Singh was captured and replaced. His first mission was to get Joe West to go into witness protection so that he would not get in the way of Eva's plans for Joseph Carver.[5]

Mirror duplicates

Since Eva only viewed the mirror duplicates as "reflections" of herself, she used them as however she pleased. "Kamilla" was ordered to kill herself to get the blood sample that Eva needed from Ramsey Rosso,[1] and later, Eva used the true form of "David" as a wormhole to teleport into McCulloch Technologies and surprise the Flash.[6] However, any act of rebellion where the duplicate thought for itself was quickly thwarted; Eva's first act in Earth-Prime was the destruction of "Iris" for wanting independence.[1]

Mirror David's body cracks apart.

With the invention of Eva McCulloch's protective suit, Eva no longer needed mirror duplicates to do her bidding outside the Mirrorverse; though Eva still takes people into the Mirrorverse, she does not make any more mirror duplicatess.[6]

As part of her effort to dismantle Black Hole, Eva destroyed the Sam Scudder duplicate. Afterwards, Eva researched files of Joseph Carver and learned that she was a duplicate herself.[2]

When Eva was publicly exposed as a mirror duplicate, she decided to replace all the inhabitants of the earth with her mirrored versions.[7] Her duplicates were attacking Central City citizens until she was convinced by Iris to give up. She then destroyed all the duplicates, returning the real people to the Earth. Then she went back to Mirrorverse.[8]

Powers and abilities

Powers

"This is my creation. She is me and I am her; what she feels, I feel, and we cannot lose."
Eva McCulloch on "Iris West-Allen"[src]
  • Connection to Eva McCulloch: As the mirror duplicates are created by Eva McCulloch, they have some sort of physiological connection to her, as they get hurt and scratch themselves when Eva does the same.[9][4] The Reflections also consider Eva to be their mother.[1]
    • Shapeshifting: The mirror duplicates can shapeshift to a certain extent, as "Iris West-Allen" could transform her arms into spears with a mirror-like surface and even use them through mirrors.[1]

Weaknesses

Caught on camera

"Do they feel what you feel for Carver?"
—Iris West-Allen to Eva McCulloch[src]
  • Connection to Eva McCulloch: Since the mirror duplicates are connected to Eva, any of her weaknesses or flaws is transferred to them. For example, if Eva is provoked emotionally, her mirror duplicatess become unstable and disoriented, leaving them open for attack.[1]
