Now some of you have watched [The Flash](series:1068303) CW The Man In The Yellow Suit promo and most of you are wondering who is the Reverse-Flash now I've been researching and I found an article on Wikipedia and guess what I found out Eabord(Eddie) Thawne is our Reverse-Flash now most of you think it's Harrison Wells but it's not it was Eddie from the future turns out that Eddie was a big fan of The Flash here's the article.

The "Return of Barry Allen" storyline in The Flash (vol. 2) #74-79 reveals that Thawne started out as a fan of The Flash living in the 25th century and became desperate to meet him. After gaining super-speed by replicating the electrochemical bath that gave Barry Allen his powers, losing years of his life in the process - even undergoing surgery to make himself look like Barry - he traveled backward in time using the Cosmic Treadmill to meet his hero. Thawne became mentally unstable upon arriving several years after Barry's death- the Treadmill having broken down over the centuries- and discovering from the Flash Museum that he is destined to become Reverse Flash and die at the hands of his idol, resulting in his mind - already disoriented by the stress of time travel- seeking escape by convincing himself that he is Barry Allen. However, his true identity is eventually revealed due to his more violent nature, "Barry" attacking Central City in revenge for "forgetting him," until he is ultimately defeated by the Flash family and sent back to the future, his memory wiped of the incident due to the trauma of the time-travel and the beating he had received at the hands of Wally West.

A right but there's more.

The Flash facing of Reverse Flash behind the scenes.

He later became a criminal known as "The Professor," who found a time capsule containing the Silver Age Flash's costume. He was able to use a machine to amplify the suit's speed energy, giving himself the abilities of the Flash as long as he wore it. In the process, Thawne reversed the colors of the costume, the suit becoming yellow, the boots and lightning bolt highlights red, and the chest symbol's white circle becoming black. Taking the new name "Professor Zoom", Thawne used his speed powers to commit crimes, but was stopped by the Flash, who had travelled forward in time to witness the time capsule being opened because it also contained an atomic clock which threatened to explode like an atomic bomb due to the process with which it had been sent into the Future. The Flash, assuming his counterpart might know where the clock was, pursued Professor Zoom. After a destructive battle, the villain was finally defeated when he boasted how he used a chemical coating to protect himself from air friction. Betting that the invisible aura around his body would be superior protection, the Flash seized Thawne and began to push him forward so fast that the intense air friction overwhelmed the coating and the resulting burns forced him to surrender. It proved a waste of time, as Thawne knew nothing about the clock and the Flash was just barely able to find and remove it to an isolated area before it exploded. He also destroyed the costume to prevent such use again.

But do you think The Flash can beat the Reverse-Flash? I mean have you seen the Reverse Flash's abilities?

  • Superhuman speed
  • Time travel and manipulation
  • Temporal annihilation
  • Absorption of intelligence through physical contact
  • Age alteration

But still we still don't who the Reverse Flash is in the next episode of The Flash because it seems that Eddie Thawne hates The Flash and thinks he's a criminal like Arrow so we don't know what changed his mind to become The Flash's fan It's just a theory if we see future Eddie become Reverse Flash then OK.
