Subj: Zoom Update

Here is the "Fury of Firestorm VFX Featurette"
In it, we see a very primitive CGI rendering of Zoom. Look at his face, it's very skeletal.
This only adds confirmation, for me at least, that Zoom is in fact the Black Flash but given the name Zoom instead.
In the new 52, Barry actually becomes the Black Flash (very reluctantly, though). I don't know any more details than that since I don't follow the Flash comics.
So, those of you who think Earth-2 Barry Allen could be Zoom, you very well could be right.
But, I'll stick to my original theory that Zoom has no identity, that he is more of a force of nature. He is the "Black Flash" of the the Flash TV Universe. He wants every Speedster dead, possibly even to absorb their speed into himself too.
But, because of the comics, Earth-2 Barry Allen is #2 on my list on who Zoom could be.
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?
