Friday Night Fights: Baddest Of The Bad – The Lightning Round!

Tonight’s Friday Night Fights is our special round , Baddest Of The Bad, where all previous round winners are pitted against each other in a winner-take-all grudgematch to determine the ultimate villain, with this DVD as the prize for the victor.

So what say we pick up the tempo?

In that vein, my final Victorious Villain is 25th Century resident Eobard Thawne, better known as the Flash nemesis who’s so not nice they named him twice -- Professor Zoom, the Reverse Flash.

Tonight’s round comes from the "Return of Barry Allen" story arc in Flash#79 which chronicles Barry Allen’s apparent return to the living and its effect on reigning Flash Wally West and his friends. Since Barry has only returned from the dead recently and this story is set way back in 1993, it’s not a big spoiler to reveal that our returnee here is not really Barry, but rather Zoom surgically altered to look like Barry.

But wait, you say, wasn’t Zoom also resurrected only recently after being killed by Barry before Barry died? So how is he back facing Barry’s successor Wally? Well, it turns out that the Zoom in this arc is from a point in his life before he fought Barry but has arrived in the present years after Barry died. Still with me? Furthermore, it turns out he thinks he is Barry Allen due to suffering a temporary psychotic break upon learning that his hero Barry killed Zoom’s future self.

(Head…splitting! F***ing time travel!!!)

Anyway, after Zoom gets his memories back he attempts to draw Wally into a confrontation the best way he knows…. by threatening West’s future wife Linda Park on national TV.

Needless to say, it works.

Let me point out something here: Zoom's speed is at the same level as Barry's was before he died. However, this arc took place before Wally discovered and learned how to manipulate the Speed Force. In fact, at this point Wally's speed is significantly less than Barry's, due to Wally's deap-seated fear of replacing Barry by becoming his equal. Spoiler: He gets over it...

.... but not in time to help him here.

And down goes Wally!
