I hardly bothered playing the guessing game this season. After 2 seasons, I'm tired of these mysteries.
Quote:1. The showrunners didn't stay true to the origin of the comics version of the character. It would have been way better had they done so. Now that we know it's an (alternate) future Barry, this raises a number of questions and problems. Why would he kill Iris, the woman he loves? Why would he hate his past self? Why would he inflict so much pain on those he once called friend? Nothing adds up and this reveal makes absolutely no sense. And this right here is a perfect example as to why the shorunners SHOULD have stuck with the origin story for Savitar in the comics. This would have erased all the problems future Barry presents us with.
Quote:They should have cast an Indian actor to play Savitar.
Is that what he was in the comics? I don't recall his ethnic background, but I know he wasn't Barry either. He was a pilot if I recall who became obsessed with speed after he gained it.
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?
