Essentially its the title. I do have a theory that I'm sure won't be overly popular. Probably isn't accurate but I would thoroughly enjoy it.
Lets get started!
We know Hunter Zolomon is the Time Judge that is investigating Eobard Thawne's death. He revealed himself at the end of the Flash Annual.
We also know that Eobard Thawne's new power is a combination of his previous power but it was stated to have been virtually the same as Hunter Zolomon's previous power set.
My theory is that:
Hunter Zolomon gave Thawne some of his power (how he did Inertia, a.k.a Kid Zoom) which explains how his power set changed and he was so much faster/more powerful than Barry. I believe Zolomon may have the ability as a time judge, whose lackeys are the Rogues (Wally Wests rogues), to move through time now. Previously he only had the ability to slow time down relative to himself. There was a WIS arc where he could time travel and phase but they are typically ignored (and should be). I believe this is stating Hunter ended up in the future, got his powers back and some new ones (ability to time travel which will make him one of the most powerful/dangerous villains in DC) as well as an obedient crew made up of Flash's (Wally) old rogues.
He's going to pit the Flash family against each other, and survival of the fittest. The last man standing will be who he torments the most to make him the best version of "the Flash"; which in my opinion should be Wally West. I do also believe that perhaps more likely, Hunter is going to destroy the Flash family and somehow bring back Eobard, whom he deems the perfect Flash. Given Hunter's belief Wally needed to be more like Barry in regards to time traveling and killing, we know Eobard is essentially a mid-tier Flash who is not afraid to go "too far". He may revel in tearing apart the Flash family, then retrieve Eobard and destroy them at their weakest. Continue being Time Judge Zoom and having Eobard be the one true Flash.
I'm psyched but more than a little apprehensive given DC's (Johns and Didio in particular) love affair with Barry. I'd love to hear your opinions on this.
Either way I believe that, moving forward, Barry should be the mentor of N52 Wally West in their own title, let Wally West who's already in Titans (comic) could take over a new Flash (comic) title (as it should be) and Barry can still be primarily in Justice League as Flash. Then everyone wins and they all have at least 2 comics.
Anyway. Here. We. Go.
