    Hope not. We had Wells/Thawne as Reverse Flash in Season 1.


    While Cisco's rather humorously expressed opinion of Earth 2 Wells is quite accurate, the fact that Wells 2 is a "prick" does not automatically make him a super villain.

Good. \:\)

    IF he is Zoom, his act so far is quite good, however unless he is schizoid and is Zoom and doesn't know it, he isn't Zoom as his daughter is shown to be Zoom's captive.

That poor daughter.

    Earth 2 Henry Allen, John Wesley Shipp leaving at the start of the season finishes the "must save my Dad" arc and gets him mostly out of the fans minds thus making it a good way for us to NOT think Earth 2 Henry could be Zoom. Shipp has stated he doesn't want to wear the uncomfortable suits again, however money does talk and stunt doubles and CGI can do wonders these days. It could be a stunt double in the running and fight scenes and then Shipp in unmasked closeups. So it IS possible that Earth 2 Henry is Zoom.

For me, it's not even remotely possible Henry is Zoom.

    However Earth 2 is so far home to evil counterparts of Earth 1 characters. Well perhaps not "evil" but some of them definitely aren't that nice. So Earth 2 henry Allen is a maybe, but Earth 2 BARRY Allen seems more plausible to me. It would be interesting to see Barry vs Dark Barry and see what an evil Barry could do. Barry is retrained by his morality, Zoom isn't.

Agreed. \:\)

    Also, I find it puzzling that no one at Star Labs seems to remember the time when Barry in Season 1 had his energy drained and was human again until they found a way to jump start/recharge his powers and he came back stronger then before. Surely such a treatment could recharge JAY GARRICK? Or if Barry summmons up some speed force energy like when he revived Cisco and gives Jay a jolt surely THAT would recharge Jay?

That is odd, but I'm actually kinda glad Jay didn't get his powers back. The show already has one speedster. It doesn't need two of them. Bad enough fake Wally is gonna show up soon.

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?
