Reverse-Flash or Professor Zoom (The Flash Villain) - Framed Print - 16"H x 12"W


A 16"H x 12"W" framed print of the Reverse-Flash, one of the Villains that The Flash battled.

Reverse-Flash, a.k.a. Professor Zoom, a.k.a. Eobard Thawne, is an interesting character with an interesting, though slightly confusing backstory,

Born far in the future, where spandex superheroes are only myth, Thawne was obsessed with the legendary Flash and, through studying him, managed to replicate his powers and become the fastest man alive in his time. Thawne is pretty unstable, though, and Barry Allen puts a stop to him; this of course leads to him becoming the villainous Reverse-Flash.

Thawne uses his time travelling abilities to go into the past in attempts to exact revenge on his former idol. His first experiment is to prevent the accident that turned Barry into the Flash in the first place, but this proves to be disastrous for him; with no Flash in the past, he would never become the Reverse-Flash in the future, and would cease to exist Back to the Future style. Realizing this, Thawne takes it upon himself to travel further back and subtly ruin Barry’s childhood, hoping small changes during those years wouldn’t lead to his own non-existence. It seems to work, and the issue ends with him arriving at Barry’s home to kill his mother—something we know he succeeded in doing in the main timeline.

We know there is more of a Story, but we got confused with too many Timelines and alternate realities
