Did You Know?


Eobard Thawne is a comic book character known as the Reverse-Flash (aka Professor Zoom) who made his comic debut in Flash #139 (Sept. 1963). Thawne was from the future and idolized The Flash. After recovering one of his suits in a time capsule, Thawne gained Barry's powers. He went back in time to meet him but learned that he himself would become a villain, thereby losing his mind and actually becoming a villain. See more »


During his long high speed chase with Reverse-Flash, Barry's civilian clothes do not catch fire (nor his shoes smoke) by air friction, as is common. See more »


Reverse-Flash: Oh, I'm not like the Flash at all. Some would say I'm the reverse.

There might be hope after all..

During the holidays, the Flash confronts the Reverse-Flash, the man who killed his mother. Caitlin gets surprising news about her fiancé, Ronnie. I truly loved and was very much suprised by 'The Man in the Yellow Suit' i mean showcasing that there's a 2nd Reverse Flash but also the entire arc of Barry going against him? Was brilliant and the effects looked very amazing to say the least. Plus the whole thing with Ronnie? was also very interesting and i wanna see where this is gonna go as well to be honest. Overall another suprisingly well made episode of 'The Flash'.
