According to Collider, Carlos Valdes, who portrays the cienphile Cisco Ramon in the hit CW show, "The Flash," appeared in front of the press at this year's Dragon Con in Atlanta. His character in the DC TV series is close friend and ally to Barry Allen aka The Flash, portrayed by actor, Grant Gustin.
In the series, Cisco helps the "Scarlet Speedster" battle metahuman villains by creating devices with his advanced technical knowledge and skills.

In terms of the upcoming "Flashpoint" storyline in season 3, based from a report by IBTimes, Cisco will experience a significant change. Valdes states that his character will still be Cisco Ramon, but an alternate reality version, and while his IQ is still at genius level, he's now had the gumption to capitalize on his skills and climb up the ranks of society and become the wealthiest man in the US. Valdes also said that S.T.A.R. Labs has been replaced with "Ramon Industries," but would still bear similarities to their base of operations, before Flashpoint.
