Hmmm....that actually makes a lot of sense. I have a hard time seeing Eddie actually becoming the psychopath that Reverse Flash seems to be, but being an ancestor, and therefore untouchable for that reason, makes a fair amount of sense (assuming one ignores the fact that anybody screwing around with events in the past runs a risk of themself never being born even if they leave their ancestors of the time alive. It wouldn't take much change to make that ancestor not have the exact same descendants all along the line that produced you. But time travel stories often DO ignore that sort of thing.)

So, the beating he took would be part of an elaborate ruse. What would be gained by that, though? To keep everyone else guessing?

Am I the only one that keeps screaming, "Put your mask back on!"? Barry's mask is off more than it's on, and he continually takes it off for no reason. In today's camera/smart phone world, someone in a nearby window would have caputured his image by now and blasted it all over the internet.

Yo.

dammit, BDD beat me to it but he's right & heres why; the RF apparently KNOWS wat Barry is & where to find him, so if this was future Eddie on some revenge trip cuz Allen ends up pulling off a cockblock -coup then why would he go all the way back in to to kill Nora *after* she's given birth to Barry? and when the YS paid Joe that visit, it was after he'd announced his intention help Barry figure who/wat he is......and IIRC that was something he'd said @ STAR Labs w/o Eddie being present. also, for somebody who was beaten bloody like Wells was (almost as if he owed him $$$), he seemed pretty fine not long after (almost as if he HEALS QUICKLY.....)

combine that with Wells constantly trying to teach/show Barry how to be faster AND killing ppl who could be a threat to him behind the scenes, I dont see any plausible way to make Eddie the RF..........altho he *could* still end up being this guy:

Sure looks like it. Don't know if the interior art depicted that or it was just shown that way on the cover to make what was going on obvious.

That never happened, it was just the cover. What actually happened was RF was after Iris, and Barry caught up to him, accidentally broke his neck while trying to stop him and killed him. Shortly thereafter, the Justice League put Barry on trial for his actions and threatened to vote him out of the league, but Superman broke the tie to keep Flash in the league.

I hope I remembered all of this correctly. I was 11 when I read it.

id really like to see vixen the question zatana red tornado in some way i mean hey we just got firestorm and grodd is coming eventually.


what i really like about the flash is they seem to manage to make the emotional side of the story better every week same with arrow for that matter.

I'd love to see somebody like Animal Man come into the two series, as well as the obvious guy everyone wants to see show up in both: Hal. Zatanna would make for a good female powered hero since everyone else is powerless [Canary and Huntress].

Actually, they teased Blue Devil in Arrow, he's cool enough to bring into the fold!

I'd argue the guy playing Eddie looks a helluva lot more like Barry than the guy who's actually playing Barry. Which is a damn shame. It's not that hard to dye somebody's hair or cast a blond actor.

Well, that might happen, given that Caitlin's name is apparently the same as Killer Frost's alter ego. (I had to have that one pointed out to me, unlike Cisco being Vibe's name.)

If they bring in Vixen I'd rather her be part of the Suicide Squad like in the comics, they need somebody with some real powers. Killer Frost being a villain will put her at odds with Firestorm eventually.

With Animal Man they could bring in the actor known as Buddy Baker under the pretense he'll be playing a movie version of the Starling City vigilante. After crossing paths with the Arrow it could be shown he's more than just some pretty faced actor and he could reveal his powers to Ollie... Also, it needs to be made clear not all metahumans were born from Well's particle accelerator. That bugs the shit out of me thinking one guy is responsible for all of the super powered heroes and villains introduced thus far. Another branch of STAR Labs should me shown or mentioned too so folks don't think Wells is the owner of the company or something.

Who else has been mentioned on the two series on CW? Blue Devil was on a theater sign, Kord Industries had a fund raiser, but was there anyone I'm not remembering?

So, is it just my old fashioned values that make me feel this way, or was Eddie's gift to Iris supremely tacky? I literally laughed out loud and said, "You've GOT to be kidding me! That is so TACKY!" when I saw that.

Is that really what passes for a romantic gift these days, the key to your place in a ring box? Or is Eddie as lame as I thought he was when I saw that?

almost 100% on-target, only thing wrong was it was Barrys soon-2-be 2nd wife Fiona Webb that Zoom was killed trying to eliminate.

yep, and in both cases, the final vote came down to Supes.

agreed. only reason he aint is cuz WB needs/wants to play up the "Spiderman" -angle with somebody younger looking for their targeted demographic (read: young women), natch.

remeber the era yur living in; for Eddie to offer up his key to Iris means he's atleast willing to let her come in, stick around & become more of a permanent fixture in his life. some would consider that a HUGE step in a relationship (for a dude, anyways.)

.....of course, if U look @ Iris when she opened the box, a key was NOT wat she was hoping/expecting to find inside.

Okay, yes! Now, I remember! Thanks for clarifying.

Doesn't it always? It was the same thing in Starcrossed in the animated Justice League series. Bits and pieces of the same stories always seem to be recycled to a point.

Could be. It's not like they haven't butchered the comic book versions already.
