Lisa Snart aka Golden Glider is a DC Comics character. She is a criminal and member of The Rogues. Her brother Leonard Snart is Captain Cold, leader of the Rogues.



Lisa was a figure skater, but after the death of her lover, Roscoe Dillon aka The Top, she becomes Golden Glider to avenge his death.

In the New 52 comics, Lisa has astral projection metahuman abilities. She is the new leader of the Rogues.


Peyton List portrays Lisa Snart in The Flash TV series. Lisa is a recurring guest character. She can be manipulative; seducing Cisco and kidnapping him to help her brother learn the Flash's identity. She is capable of violence, using her gold gun to attack a local casino run by the mob. Despite this she has a genuine attraction to Cisco and often flirts with him.

Although she's been mentioned since her last appearance on Flash and on Legends of Tomorrow, Lisa has not been seen since Season 2 episode "Family of Rogues". Its currently unknown if actress Peyton List will be back on the show since she went on to play another DC Comics villain, Poison Ivy, in the 4th Season of Gotham.


Often pairings including Lisa appear as side pairings, in DC Comics and Arrowverse fanworks.


Lisa is most commonly paired with her canonical love interest Roscoe Dillon.


Lisa Snart is most commonly paired with Cisco Ramon. This is often a side pairing in Coldflash fics. Rare pairings include Lisa Snart/Caitlin Snow, Lisa Snart/Iris West, Lisa Snart/Laurel Lance, Lisa Snart/Leonard Snart. Lisa can also be paired with Roscoe Dillon her lover from the comics, despite that character not appearing on the show. On the Flash, Roscoe has been gender bent and is now a female villain, Rosa Dillon. The pairing of Rosa Dillon/Lisa Snart is not popular.

Much of her comics backstory is used to inform Lisa's representation in this fandom. Many works mention her passion for figure skating before beginning her life of crime.

In Earth-2, it was suggested that a Snart family member was Mayor of Central City - although it was eventually confirmed to be Lisa's brother Leonard, others still headcanon that it is Lisa instead[1].

Lisa learning or dealing with her brother's canon death on Legends of Tomorrow also appears in fanworks since it has not been confirmed that she knows the truth.
