Again, not seeing any problems here.
Why does the character becomes less viable/entertaining in live action?
The reverse (no pun intended) is actually more likely, as the medium wont allow for the FX that can easily be brought to the printed page. His powers will be more grounded, less out of this world.
I don't know about that. again going off of the trailer....there is
Faster then sight movement
fast healing - a radial fracture can take 6-8 weeks to heal and even as long as 3 months to get your arm back to proper working order. He was completely healed in hours.
Time Travel - as I mentioned before unless zoom is that much faster then the flash.
when catching that bicyclist everything is completely frozen in place.
and that would all be shown in season 1 while hes getting the hang of his powers. I think he will be massively powerful. maybe not comic counter part powerful but still powerful enough im sure there will be times when people question how could anyone beat him.
just before she was killed, kid-barry saw yellow AND red 'bolts' colliding around his mother. obviously the yellow bolts were zoom, which means the red bolts were himself/flash. so yeah, i think it's obvious that zoom travels back in time to try and kill barry when he was still a child so flash never existed, but barry also figures out how to time travel(introduction of the cosmic treadmill, perhaps..?), and is able to battle zoom long enough to save his younger self...but at the cost of his mother's life(he can't save them both.)
pilot was outstanding, btw.

Thats a pretty good speculation. Ive been reading that some people think that a particular person is actually Barry from the future. Idk if it will be Barry himself but it is someone from the future that much is clear. Also I wonder if Mark Mardon will be in the show at a later date...seems like a possible set up and the scene with the cage after Barry wakes up....I squealed a little lol
That was awesome. In one episode we meet Reverse-Flash, Killer Frost, and Weather Wizard (well, his brother), set up for Gorilla Grodd, got to see Green Arrow, got the Flash's origin out of the way, and have him in his suit. The little Wayne Enterprises nod was awesome too, so we know for sure Batman exists somewhere. Ferris Airways was also a nod to Carol Ferris (Star Sapphire, Green Lanterns love interest, and super villain). I cant wait until they start to introduce other heroes like Superman, Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern or Wonder Woman. Great pilot!
I'm calling it now. A few seasons from now, Barry is gonna die and Wally will take up the mantle as the main character.
Well whatever you decide its worth it. It is a good start. Im probably gonna watch it a bunch more lol Still plan on watching it when it airs on October 7th....actually I will have to wait for hulu since I don't get that channel where I live lol
[SPOILER - highlight to read]: the future headline shown at the end of the pilot is already setting the stage for flash to die in a COIE-type event: "FLASH MISSING, VANISHES IN CRISIS", and just below that article is another headline which reads: "RED SKIES VANISH". during COIE, the sky turning red is what heralded the destruction of the multiverse. COIE is also the event in which barry allen originally gave his own life to save the last remaining universes.
so yeah, i have no doubt that barry will die at some point, and the flash mantle will be passed to someone else. my only real question is when the show's producers plan on doing this..? i suppose it really all depends on how well the show does. /shrug
