Eobard Thawne, also known as Reverse-Flash, is the arch-nemesis of you-know-who. He’s a twisted sociopath with a brilliant mind, as well as super-speed. Coming from the 25th century, Professor Zoom traveled through time to battle his most hated enemy. Zoom is 5’11”, weighs 179 lbs, and could move up to 7,500,000 mph, deliver hundreds of blows a second, and vibrate his molecules to phase through solid matter. Zoom also created his own Negative Speed Force by generating it through kinetic energy, contaminating it. Bartholomew Henry Allen lost his mother while his father was convicted of the crime; the drive to prove him innocent gave Barry a strong belief in justice. In high school, Allen had a reputation for being slow. On his first date, he went to a carnival; his date wanted to put a little motion in his life, so they went on a roller-coaster, causing him to develop a fear of them. Allen loved chemistry&during a night of a storm, a bolt of lightning struck down on him, resulting in Allen gaining extraordinary quickness. Flash is 6 ft, weighs 195 lbs, and obtained powers from the Speed Force (sound barrier), the universe’s ultimate measure of velocity. Allen was one of the fastest Flashes&arguably one of the fastest beings to ever exist. He’s quick enough to break all of the barriers, even enter the Speed Force itself, and was one of few to escape from it. He didn’t go beyond Mach-10 (over 7,000 mph), as speeds above that level were catastrophic to the environment. Speedsters in their prime could even reach the speed of light [with enough willpower].
FLASH, by Stanley Lau.
Eobard, you monster.
That time when you were greeting Green Lantern and accidentally said Green Arrow.
(( That time you stepped on the mayors dog? MEEEEEEE ))
That time you tripped while you were running at Mach 10?
That time you accidentally rewrote the entire universe in a way to get back your mother, whom I took from you?
Well, actually, that was you. The resulting complete reboot of everything as you know it was you, too.
But remember the time the ice cream man was all out of orange ice pops when you were really craving one?
That time you ordered a package from ebay that arrived containing a polecat
That time you drank orange juice right after brushing your teeth? ME.
That time you accidentally ran through a Leggo factory barefoot? MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Good lord someone should make a meme
The funniest thing about this, to me, is that I read that as ‘Do you remember the electrical fire that burned down your house in Farmville?’ and I didn’t even question it.
That time when you drank expired milk!?
That time you woke up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, stumbled around in the dark and promptly stubbed your pinky toe on the corner of the bed and it was so painful you thought it was broken?
Earlier today I saw a post by Ginchiest where someone asked him what he thought Barry Allen’s personality is like and I was happy to see that he said basically what Mark Waid wrote in that Green Lantern/Flash Brave and the Bold book because that’s pretty much what I thought. Well that and the little you saw of him in Final Crisis.
Anyways, I wanted to draw The Flash and try to convey what I thought his personality should be if you just modernized the Silver Age interpretation.
This is just awesome. So freaking awesome. I would love to see this animated are as a comic book.
The only thing that bothers me: I HATE BARRY ALLEN AS FLASH!
He is history, a younger Jay Garrick. Wally West, Impulse & Co were meant to be the new generation. They were better, had more character and Berry died for a (good) reason. His timeline ended. But nobody is letting him rest in peace. Fuck these guys at DC Comics.
