    I can see this, your theory is growing on me. Zoom definitely has strong similarities to Clarris' The Rival, and while my instinct is that the writers wouldn't use someone so obscure from the comics they have just revived the equally obscure menace of The Turtle.
    The fact is, with last seasons twists with Harrison Wells/Eobard Thawne, Thawne's unexpected return this season, time-travel, dimension hopping... In this show anything goes. No theory is too far fetched and unlikely.
    So you are right. actually makes perfect sense given this began as Jay Garrick's story, on Earth-2, and both had an obsessive fixation on speed and The Flash.

"Your theory"? More like Dave of Man Faces Theory since I posted a similar theory a little further down, then mine, then Iron Man Unit's. *Winks and smiles*

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?
