Quote:2. There will be a new half to Firestorm coming with a new actor which I suspect will also be in part pandering to the cries for more ethnic heroes and villains. hate to sound too cynical but.....
Yeah, I really wish DC would just create brand new heroes and villains with ethnic diversity instead of changing the ones we know and love without needing to.
Quote:3. Atom Smasher and ZOOM are from Earth 2. ZOOM is supposed to be a blue costumed alternative version to Reverse Flash but be advised he is NOT the Eobard Thawne we had from Season 1 this is someone ELSE.
Uhh, no, Zoom is Hunter Zolomon AKA Zoom who can alter time relative to himself, making him appear as if he has Superspeed. And he wears a yellow suit. He is Wally West's "Reverse Flash". There is no blue suit.
Quote:4. The Time Storm was stopped in the here and now, however that does NOT mean that repercussions are NOT occurring in the future, remember that is where/When Reverse Flash comes from. the Paradox affect may well still be occurring in the future which MIGHT be what prompts Rip Hunter to arrive to start up the Legends of Tomorrow.
Definitely food for thought.
Quote:7. Reality has been breached and foes from Earth 2 have arrived starting with Atom Smasher and of course ZOOM. I suspect that Zoom can easily traverse the dimensions, Jay and Barry will need the cosmic treadmill/particle accelerator, at least at first. My memories of Barry's powers from the comics of old indicate that he could travel freely in time and dimensions with out the treadmill.
Zoom probably could since he can manipulate time itself. But who knows.
Quote:8. Cisco can see through reality again, AND Caitlin blaming herself for the loss of Ronnie may be another step to Killer Frost
Yep, I think Killer Frost is going to show up this season for sure.
Quote:9. The Time Storm was halted and the past remains the past and so does the present. Nora Allen is dead. Eddie Thawne is DEAD and thus Eobard Thawne, the Reverse Flash is erased. We are told that there would still be a Harrison Wells on the show, likely from Earth 2 and migrating to Earth 1. However it IS possible that despite the time storm being shut down that Harrison Wells of OUR Earth is back....but I don't think that is the case. It is more likely he will be from Earth 2. We shall see.
I think he'll be from the same Earth as Barry because without Reverse Flash, Dr. Wells wouldn't have died. But if he still lives, or will come from an alternate reality, there is that taped confession that "Reverse Flash" made in his persona of Harrison Wells. So, that means, either way, Dr. Wells will end up having to lay low and never show himself in public. Ouch.
Now HERE is some of my speculation/theory about how things MAY go. Remember I stated above that while the Time Storm was stopped that it may still be having ramifications IN THE FUTURE WHERE EOBARD THAWNE HAILS FROM. Thus my theory is that in order to fix things and help seal the dimensional breach between Earth 1 and 2, Rip Hunter may show up and use his powers to PREVENT Eddie from shooting himself and erasing the Reverse Flash. Barry of course will NOT approve of this.....
This should have happened in this episode. But who knows, maybe it will happen later. But considering the fact the writers want to open up the multiverse, I doubt this will happen at all.
Quote:However remember the other paradox: Flash exists because of the Reverse Flash who exists because of the Flash. Right now that temporal circle/moebius strip is BROKEN.....thus Barry himself is a paradox that should not exist. Thus I still think Rip Hunter may have something to say about that. It is quite possible that to avoid a major temporal catastrophe that reverse Flash must be restored.
Everything I have read so far indicates that ZOOM is wearing blue in season 2 unless there has been a last minute change. Frankly blue would be a nice change and set him apart from Eobard Thawne/Professor Zoom/reverse Flash
Yes the writers want the multiverse opened and that is fine, however when a stone is thrown in the water the ripples occur and spread forth. Changes to time have been depicted as a ripple effect that spreads through the years after the initial change is made and the ripples alter things to compensate. For all we know the ripples are spreading into the future despite the time storm being stopped here in the present. So the present isn't really changed but what of the future?
At some point in the future Eobard is supposed to become RF, go nuts about Barry and start the enmity that would traverse time and space, now that cannot happen.....and the affects on the time stream should still be manifesting, requiring something to be done such as stopping Eddie's death which restores Reverse Flash.
Killer Frost, I'd rather she didn't appear.
Yes if a Harrison occurs on another Earth and comes over he will need a face/name change.
as to ethnicity, I am all for it, but I agree that changing classic characters is an error, such as Falcon as Capt America, SHe/Fake THOR and so on.
Just make new characters.
Of course the actor that played Ronnie may not be available too.
