In comic book lore, Wildcat belongs to the Justice Society of America and trains various crime fighters… including Black Canary.

This leads to speculation that he'll help Laurel became the new Canary.

In addition to his stint as Dr. Aquino on the aforementioned CW drama, Ramirez’s TV resume also include Starz’s Power, House of Payne and Hacienda Heights.
