    They showed that. He was still conscious when Barry took off his mask to tend to a dying Plastique. Thereby acknowledging the annoying fact that Barry is a moron, always taking off his mask when he stops moving too fast for people to see him. The mask apparently is there to simply keep his identity from Iris as he tells everyone else after he has known them for five minutes. Attention writers or writers want-to-be, acknowledging a stupid aspect of the story doesn't make it less stupid.

You make valid points about Barry's stupidity (and I fully 100% agree with them) but the scene itself describing to us how Eiling knows Barry is the Flash doesn't work. Eiling was looking at Barry while Barry's back was turned, so the General doesn't even get to look at Barry's face. Thus, there is no way Eiling should know who the Flash is. Thus, he magically knows that Barry and the Flash are one and the same. The man must be a metahuman himself because he's bloody psychic.

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?
