That doesn't come as a great surprise. His character came from nowhere but was heavy handedly designed as a reasonably challenging antagonist for Barry Allen to struggle with. Instantly unlikable that was his function. Yet he seemed to becomes a swift victim to heavy rewriting as the producers changed directions constantly and for all the world appeared to be making the show up as they went along. As such the character was something that just appeared in Barry's crime-lab one day, made his life difficult briefly, and by even mid-season stopped making much sense.

Little surprise the man has departed for fresher fields. \(fear\)

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong.
