Quote:Yeah, I think it would have been better if they hadn't shown him yet. All we should know is that there is someone VERY smart manipulating events in ways that no one should be able to manipulate events.
Quote:The fact that we've seen him, just sort of ruins it. Because he doesn't seem intimidating in person at all.
Quote:Maybe that's a good thing. Even in the comics, I've never found the Thinker very intimidating. Here, he's confined to a floating chair and doesn't look very intimidating and I believe that is a good thing. Why? Because maybe Barry will end up thinking the same thing we do and that will lead to Barry underestimating the Thinker. In turn, that gives the Thinker an advantage "because" his appearance is not intimidating. He can actually use that against Barry, or any of his enemies. The Thinker's real power is in his head, his smarts, his capacity for strategy. He's not supposed to be intimidating on the outside because a lot of brainy people aren't (at least in real life). The Thinker's real asset is his brain.
Certainly the Thinker wasn't ever physically intimidating and it was his brain that was his asset.
But I was speaking like writing wise. I'm one of those people that think SUSPENSE type Horror movies are the best because it's more scary when you DON'T see things.
Thinker would be WAY scarier to me if they only things I knew about him so far are that he is really smart, and he is 10 steps ahead of Barry.
That's all I was saying.
