Now sorry to all you New God fans but Harrison Wells isn't a New God so says most of you that Harrison Wells is the Reverse Flash but which one because I'm not sure if he really is Professor Zoom.

There are 5 Different Reverse-Flashes but only 2 might fit the bill.

Lets take a look at the 2 Reverse-Flashes that fits Harrison Wells, Hunter Zolomon or Professor Zoom? My mind says both so I don't know.


Professor Zoom
Professor Zoom

Although Harrison Wells doesn't really have the characteristics of Professor Zoom but the suit in his secret room does look like Professor Zoom's suit.In the comics it says that Eoboard Thawne is our Professor Zoom but in the CW it's Harrison Wells it says that he was a fan of The Flash 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.He(I don't know what to say either Thawne or Wells) became mentally unstable upon arriving several years after Barry's death the Treadmill having broken down over the centuries- and discovering from [The Flash](series:1068303) 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.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, He(again don't know which one to say) 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.

I know right?


Hunter Zolomon
Hunter Zolomon

Harrison Wells has most of the characteristics of Hunter Zolomon but still just a theory.Hunter Zolomon had a troubled relationship with his parents, who rarely spoke to each other or to him. On the day Hunter was to leave for college, he came home to find the police laying siege to his house. His father was a serial killer who had killed six young girls, and when his mother told the police, his father murdered her, and was subsequently killed by the police after refusing to give himself up.Hunter Zolomon was crippled and paralyzed due to an attack by Gorilla Grodd at Iron Heights.He asked Wally West to use the time-traveling cosmic treadmill in the Flash Museum to prevent this from occurring, but West refused, saying that he could not risk damaging the timestream. Zolomon, feeling that Wally should be prepared to disregard such fears for the sake of their friendship, then broke into the museum and attempted to use the treadmill himself. The resulting explosion destroyed the museum and shifted Hunter's connection to time - described by Jay Garrick as him being 'derailed' from the timeline by the explosion - thus allowing Zolomon to alter the speed at which he could move in time, giving him the effect of superspeed.Zolomon decided that West had refused to help because, unlike the previous Flash Barry Allen, West had never suffered personal tragedy, and thus did not understand how terrible it could be. Zolomon decided that if he became the new Zoom and caused a great tragedy in Wally's life, this would help the Flash become a better hero. After borrowing speed from the other speedsters to even the playing field, briefly allowing him to match Zoom's near-impossible speed, Flash succeeded in defeating Zoom, and prevented his former friend from killing his then-pregnant wife Linda Park, although Zoom's attack caused a miscarriage of their twin children. Thanks to Wally using the slight 'rips' in time that were being created by the use of Zoom's powers, Zolomon was forced into a temporal anomaly - being shoved into the rift essentially tied a 'knot' in his timeline - and ended up in a comatose state, continually watching the death of his father-in-law.

OK so why don't you vote and comment on which Reverse-Flash Harrison Wells is.
