Wade Eiling is a military general involved with the military's meta-human projects. When forced to commit robberies under Grodd's mind control, Joe West nicknamed Eiling Goldfinger .


Early life

Wade Eiling previously did many inhumane experiments on Grodd with the intent of giving him the power of telepathy, though Harrison Wells shut down the experiment before they could finish.[1]

Experiments on and hunting Bette Sans Souci

After the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator accident which granted Bette Sans Souci the power of turning ordinary objects into explosives, Wade begun experiments on her, hoping to use her as a weapon in war. After Bette caused an explosion in an office building, Wade decided to take over the case. Wade managed to track Bette and shot Bette though Bette was saved and taken to safety by The Streak. Wade later made it to S.T.A.R. Labs after tracking her location by lacing the bullets with a tracker. Wade was too late as they managed to get Bette out before he arrived. He also had a confrontation with Wells, who denied harbouring Bette. Wade left the crippled scientist alone, reminding that they could've changed the world together.

When Bette supposedly surrendered herself, he and his men were attacked by her with her powers. When Bette was caught off guard, Wade shot and killed Bette. Her DNA turned the bullet into a bomb though Barry rushed her to the river to prevent the city from being hit by the impact. Wade later claimed that the military were only testing explosives and that the city shouldn't be alarmed.

Wade later returned to S.T.A.R. Labs to confront Wells about the Streak. Seeing the potential in meta-humans, he suggests that they work together again, to which Wells refused. Wade threatened to bring his soldiers in to take over the building, but Wells countered that he could bring an army of press as well and he could testify against him for his unethical projects. He warns Wade not to threaten him again, or he would end him, and not just his career. Turning to leave, Wade reminds Harrison that he knows his secret and the public will learn it as well.[1]

Hunting Firestorm

Some months later, Eiling detected a nuclear explosion in the badlands outside Central City and ordered his men to retrieve Firestorm.[2] He had an encounter with Barry Allen and the separated Ronnie Raymond at Jtters, and he later abducted Martin Stein. However, following his defeat at the hands of the Flash, he was taken by the Reverse-Flash, who revealed his true identity as Harrison Wells. Wells told him he was a meta-human, and therefore, that he "looked out" for other meta-humans, Wells then proceeded to release Grodd on him.[3]

Puppet to Grodd

Some months later, Eiling attacked the bank under the persuasion of Grodd, but he was defeated and unmasked by The Flash. He was brought to the Pipeline and Team Flash discovered that Eiling was being controlled by Grodd, as his mind was in a near-vegetative state. However, Grodd used Eiling to talk to the team. After the team defeated the telepathic gorilla, Eiling was freed from his mind control and was released from the Pipeline, heading back to his military base and begin to hunt down Grodd.[4]


Wade is shown to be a ruthless and immoral man. He will do anything, including inhumane activities such as experimenting on humans and animals, to strengthen the US military. It could arguably qualify as a monomania, since Eiling dismisses the fact that he knows Barry Allen is the Flash, given that they have a mutual enemy (Wells/Thawne). He does seem to have some respect for Harrison Wells, even calling him the smartest guy that he knows.
