    What is the Reverse Flash? A blue version of Flash who's a villian and runs backwards? :rolleyes: Someone mentioned on the Justice League Message Board that they would like to see Reverse Flash make an appearance on the JL cartoon... and I have no idea why, since I don't read comic books. I'll say this though... it sounds like a real corny idea!!! :rolleyes:

    Could someone enlighten me here? Thanks. :)

    I think reverse flash is a yellow Flash with a backwards emblem.....and he's an evil version of him...or somthing like that....

    it'd be sorta cool to see him on JL, but I dunno if it'd exactly work....because then there'd have to be Bizarro and reverse Batman.. :p :D

    Professor Zoom the Reverse Flash is a Silver Age Flash villain who is basically an evil twin of the Flash. A criminal from the future, he travelled back in time and was a frequent foe of Barry Allen.

    Here's a picture of him, provided by Justice League Adventures artist Min S. Ku:

    The reverse flash is an enemy of Barry Allen's ( the second flash) from the 25th century. He learned about all the hero's of the 20th century in hisory books and became obsessed with the flash. So much so that he spend his family fortune researching and duplicating the accident that gave Barry his powers. He also had plastic surgury done to make him self look like Barry.

    To make a long story short (and this one does get long), He lost his mind, visited our time several times, killing barry's first bride and attempting to kill his second. Eventually Barry killed him.

    He had all of the powers and speed of Barry, his only weakness was he wasn't as experienced and was insane. His costume was yellow with a red thuderbolt emblem (instead of red with a yellow thunder bolt).

    Here is a really good flash site. you'll see his family has a history with the Flashes that spans centuries.

    I don't think he would work in the JL, he kept a pretty high body count (usually by hitting someone at super speed or by vibrating his hand into someone head scrambling thier brains.

    Also the Flash is not used as a primary hero in JL yet. The way whey are using him, a serious villian version of him would clash and/or be too easy to beat.

    don't forget that Barry Allen(Flash)and Prof.Zoom are the grand fathers of Bart(Impulse)Allen.

    I though reverse-flash was to cover yourself, instead of exposing yourself.
    I guess I can't keep up with all these here funny books.
