    Why Max and not Jay?

In the comics, Max Mercury was known for, "Zen, master of speed". At least in the days of Wally West anyway. Out of all of the speedsters, aside from Barry himself (well, his COMIC book self), Max seemed to know more about speed than anyone, including Jay Garrick. Besides, the writers want to bring in Wally and that would be two Flashes in the show. So Max would be a good counter-balance to that since he doesn't go by that name and would be a good mentor to a Barry who doesn't know a whole lot about Speed.

Of course, if they did bring in Jay and not Max, I'd be all for that too. Either character would work really.

Would you prefer Jay?

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?
