Personally I thought the trial of the Flash was the low point in Barry's career. It was not stimulating reading.

And I never understood how the courts could charge Barry with the murder of a time traveler? If Hal Jordan kills Sinestro on earth are they going to charge him with murder even though the victim is an alien?

The courts overstepped IMO. Time traveler murder should be allowed. That's like self defense.




Plus, it's not like Barry had a choice. He only killed Thawne to save Iris, so it's technically not murder in my book.





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?
