    Barry didn't stop the singularity. Firestorm did. All Barry did was to stabilise it a little by running around it. You're right that light can't escape a black hole, but that light needs to have crossed the event horizon, to be inside the black hole where the curvature of spacetime is infinite. Barry was quite a distance outside the event horizon, and wouldn't have needed to go anywhere near the speed of light.


They both stopped it. And did you see the episode? Barry was literally inside of it.

Couldn't agree more, especially the time travel bit.





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?
