And RF never stated he beat Kara's cousin. The exact quote goes like this, "Yeah, your cousin is fast. I'm faster."
While it can be implied RF beat Superman, this isn't solid proof that he did. For all we know, Superman was on the verge of beating RF but Thawne used his superior speed to get away. Superman gives chase but can't catch him because RF is faster.
But we don't know if that happened either because we don't know what exactly happened in their encounter. One thing about implied statements, though, is I don't take them as fact. Plus, RF could have been lying just to intimidate Kara.
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?
