Quote:Barry's time/dimension travel power has worked with assistance of tachyon boosters or RF or Kid Flash or Supergirl giving him a speed boost to open the rift.
Oh? So, he used tachyon boosters or got a boost in speed when he decided to go back in time to save his Mom, accidentally creating "Flashpoint"? I didn't see any tech assist or boost in that episode.
And when he first discovered time travel, he was also not boosted by tech.
Then he did it again when he saved Central City from a tidal wave.
Then he time travelled again, without assistance, during a crossover with Arrow when they fought Vandal Savage. Again, no tech assist. No Boost.
Granted, all the above situations were "special" circumstances, but not when Barry went back in time to save his Mom. That was all him. Oh, and that time he went back in time to get Captain Cold to do a mission last season. That was all him too.
Now, opening portals to other dimensions? That's something he has to have help with. Even then, it's stil a power he possesses on his own. He just needs to develop it so he can do it without assistance.
Quote:Now he is charged up after being in the SF for 6 months so his powers are likely at their peak. Now he just needs to learn to use them.
It's likely going to be stealing speed from moving objects kind of thing. That would be a new power.
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. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
