Been saying since forever that Team Flash had too many damn people. Works for arrow since they're basically human and have no powers except for the Canary duo, but you can't have a team of 6 super powered people mixed in with detectives, scientists and tech people and still take a whole season to take down Cicada. And this is before you even consider how OP some of them are.
Its funny that in a foot chase he never ever catches up with anyone. Thawne hadn't run in years, split himself into two and Barry & Nora still couldn't catch him.
I dont think he ages slower. Doesn't he have the ability to change his age or something through speedforce means?This Thawne is from much later in the timeline than Crisis on Earth-X Thawne, at least 15 years. He might be rusty but he could've trained for decades after Earth-X.
Also I guess this episode confirms that he ages slower, when the dagger came off he reverted back to his normal Tom Cavanagh look.
Speedsters age slower/stay younger longer in the comic through speed force healing.
That ain’t true for Arrow at all
Ugh, I hated when that bunch of vigilantes were introduced as main cast members and Oliver became a mentor.
You're right, Season 2 was peak Arrow. Season 7 was bad writing all around. I feel bad for the actors, cause some of them are pretty good.
It is kinda funny that Cisco bails right before the crossover his powers would be most beneficial in dealing with.
That's what I'm saying. It's too good to be true
Lol, it'd be more that the cure is absolutely real, but if they ever feel like backtracking on that due to Cisco's actor, they'll have no issue retconning it
The thought certainly did occur to me as well. Especially since apparently Carlos isn't leaving the show (yet?), from what I've heard.
Comic Wally was capped at Mach-1 for much of his early career because he subconsciously wanted to protect Barry's legacy by not being a better Flash, so it's not without precedent.
Yeah, I know about speedsters in general, but I'm talking about Thawne specifically.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eobard_ThawneEobard Thawne already possessed genius-level intellect by the standards of the 25th Century even prior to gaining his metahuman abilities, making him possibly one of the smartest individuals when in the 21st century. The Flash: Rebirth revealed that duplicating the accident behind Barry Allen's powers created a negative Speed Force by corrupting the positive version. The Reverse-Flash is therefore able to travel at superhuman speeds faster than the speed of light, deliver blows of extreme force by hitting the victim hundreds of times a second, run on water, generate vacuums, create after-images ("speed mirages") of himself, and vibrate his molecules to pass through solid objects. Unlike original Speed Force users, Thawne has the ability to travel through and manipulate time, being able to drastically alter history and completely erase people from existence (other speedsters cannot change the past without dramatic consequences). Thawne developed numerous new powers in the events leading up to Flashpoint, including the ability to cross over to other dimensions, create shockwaves across time and space at the snap of his fingers, absorb another's memories via physical contact, and alter the age of anyone or anything. Thawne has also displayed superhuman strength, as well as electrokinetic abilities. The presence of his lightning is able to disrupt and fry nearby electronics, in addition to allowing him to manipulate magnetism. During the New 52 reboot, Eobard gained the ability to slow down time similar to Hunter Zolomon. He retained his pre-New 52 counterpart's age altering abilities. In the DC Rebirth relaunch, however, Eobard regained his negative Speed Force connection and therefore all of his original powers.
Joke post? Taking his girl on dates to Jitters.. obviously. Didn't you see the huge slow motion smile on his face? He'll shrug and ask her what they're going to do tomorrow..
I said the same thing.
I liked him better when he wasn't drooling over Kara every five seconds.
The bizarre part is that Batwoman still seems to do some shooting in Chicago, from the looks of the trailer. I would’ve thought they’d just completely settle it in Vancouver but I guess they need that Gotham look.
The budget for that won't last past the first season, it might just be for the pilot. Let's just enjoy the change of scenery while it lasts.
I think the recent Legends appearance of Hell is what we're going to get for Gotham, minus the CGI backdrop.
I'm guessing it's just the pilot, then they'll just use Chicago aerial/scenery shots like Supergirl does since it moved to Vancouver.
Oh, there are tons more places to shoot left in Vancouver. They haven't even done the Britannia Mine Museum or Queen of Sidney yet!
I wonder how often Batgirl is going to end up wandering around in a forest. She'd better watch out for invisible dinosaurs.
It's not just that its too much filler and all the important stuff squeezed into the last episode so time travel is the easiest way to get out of it
We've been saying this but Ralph is the best member on Team Flash. He deserves a better team.
My hope for next season is that we get a nice arc with Ralph and Sue meeting and falling in love. No love triangle garbage, no Cisco-esque garbage, just a sweet story about Ralph finally finding a woman he clicks with.
Add him to the list of people/things faster than the fastest man alive.
