Like father, like son?

The CW's upcoming superhero series “The Flash” has found it's role for John Wesley Shipp, who played the speedy, red-tighted hero in CBS's “The Flash” in the 1990s.

In a move that's perhaps not surprising, Shipp has been cast as Henry Allen, the father of Barry Allen, AKA the Flash, who's being played by “Glee” alum Grant Gustin.

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?
