Reply Subj: An interesting theory on Zoom's identity
Posted: Thu Nov 05, 2015 at 11:01:22 pm GMT (Viewed 606 times)

    It's quite long, about 16 minutes. I'd start at the 6:25 mark to get to this guy's long explanation on who he thinks Zoom is.

    It's rather compelling and he makes excellent points. That causes me to revise my list and add in a name. So, my list on who Zoom is as follows.

    1. Zoom has no identity. This one is my own personal theory. He's the Grim Reaper of Speedsters, wanting to steal their speed. He has been been referred to as the "Speed Demon" and his look is black, which takes after the Black Flash. He wants to be the only one with Superspeed, which only feeds into my theory. Zoom also has a monsterous looking face, much like Black Flash does in the comics. I also posted a primitive CGI fight a while back with Jay chasing after Zoom and Zoom had a very skeletal face. This also feeds into my theory that Zoom has no identity and is based off of the Black Flash. He is more of a force of nature than an actual person. Thus, he is Zoom and no one else.

I always hate when a mystery ends that way. I guess the only way these work is if the villain is a nobody (or is nobody) then there has to still be something there that makes them interesting. Like somehow at the end of the mystery your time hasn't been wasted.

    2. The guy's theory above is compelling and he makes some very good points. It's for this reason that I will now put Earth-2 Wally West as someone who could be Zoom. After all, Earth Prime Wells created the Flash and Earth-2 Wells created Zoom. What if Zoom was created in a similar way as the Flash was? So, because of that, Earth-2 Wally West sits at #2 as someone who could be Zoom.

eh...that one sounds awful. But so does my Earth-2 Henry Allen theory so I'll behave.

    3. Eddie Thawne. Yes, he killed himself, but his body was sucked into the portal. Plus, that singularity is essentially a black hole. Who's to say Eddie's body didn't end up being thrown back in time and altered to the point he got powers before being revived? I still think that he could have been revived and gained the power to alter time relative to himself so it only looks like he's a speedster but he's not. So, what if he wants to steal the speed of every speedster so he can use that energy to go back in time and prevent himself from turning into Zoom? I say it's entirely possible. Plus, Eddie Thawne shares a lot in common with another character who called himself Zoom and that is Hunter Zolomon. It's because of this that Eddie Thawne sits at #3.

Well his character appears to have just got written off Quantico in the recent an actor's gotta eat.

I have a bad feeling when this season was being developed:

Writer 1: "let's create a mystery villain speedster"

Writer 2: "Ok but who is he under the mask"

Writer 3: "who cares we'll figure that out later"

    4. Zoom is Earth-2 Barry Allen. I don't necessarily agree with this one but he sits at #4 simply because it's actually a possibility.

Gunn from Angel (Gunn's a Flash fan ironically) had the perfect response to meeting his double in the white room which has now and forever more ruined the trope for me:

"So, I'm looking at me because, what? We gonna play a mirror game? Get our mime on?"

    What are your thoughts about Earth-2 Wally West possibly being Zoom?

I don't like the idea of a character who hasn't even been introduced yet's evil doppelganger turning out to be the big bad. They kind of did that with Harrison. The fake was shown first, then the real one then the Earth-2 one. Granted it's not exactly the same.

I'm going to take a page out of Dwight Schrute's handbook.
On the Office there was an episode where they played a murder mystery and he deduced that Phyllis was the killer because she was the one he most medium suspected.

Dwight Schrute “It’s never the person who you most suspect. It’s also never the person you least suspect since anyone with half a brain would suspect them the most. Therefore, I know the killer to be Phyllis… The person who I most medium suspect.” "

So in that vein the person I most medium suspect is Captain Singh. I have no reason to suspect him nor do I have reason not to suspect him so he must be the killer.
