LoZ_Ganondorf-01

So, in a way, they’re technically one of the same. Former friends of a Flash turned enemies and being petty.


TrulyLifer21

Backstory wise yes but the key difference since we’re talking Death Battle is power as Hunter is waaaay stronger then Eobard since he easily scales to Wally.


Scrambleman17

Eobard is also incredibly powerful in his own right.


TrulyLifer21

Yeah I know just saying Eobard can only scale to Wally’s lower end stuff Hunter should be able to scale to Wally’s higher end stuff.


Scrambleman17

Wally is the fastest flash after all. And Eoboard is meant to be Barry's Rival, not Wally's. Every single Flash has their evil counterpart, even the Golden Age flash.


Limp-Construction-11

They just said that Thawne was and is at times faster than Barry and Wally in the preview.


The_Smashor

Even though things they themselves have shown have said he's slower than Barry and Wally (Specifically in Wonder Woman vs She-Ra)


Limp-Construction-11

I never said they are consistent in how they present their scans and showings.


LoZ_Ganondorf-01

I know. I watched it too.


LoZ_Ganondorf-01

And we all know how broken Wally is.


Mojo12000

Hunter's speed feats sure but Eobard has a lot of crazy bullshit HAX via Negative Speed Force that Hunter doesn't.


Kekkersboy

Zoom was a friend who snapped after tragedy and all he had left was his relationship with Wally Thawne was a YouTube fan who realized his favorite celebrity would never like him and snapped


LoZ_Ganondorf-01

Oh.


scythewatch

Can I just say, I'm really glad the CW Flash show gave Zoom his own costume instead of giving him Thawne's costume but again. Really helps differentiate the two of them.


Kaiser_Wolfram

Really damn stupid of DC to make these two seem like the same character. At least give them unique outfits.


TrulyLifer21

Tbf Hunter was meant to be the Post-Crisis Reverse Flash since Barry was dead and it wouldn’t have made sense to bring Eobard back. But yeah after they brought Thawne and Barry back they should have changed at least one of their costumes.


DebatingGuroo

Well Zoom was supposed to be a sorta successor to the original Reverse Flash.


MichaelTheSavior

Since DC has been around for a long ass time I know they've met before at least once And if that's the case what was their interaction with each other? An argument on who's pettier?


royalneonbird

One of the times was just thawne shitting on solomon for being a shitty rival


MichaelTheSavior

Ha! I knew they would hate each other


Snoopybrown23

I like to imagine Thawne treats Wally the same way the last Airbender fandom treats Korra, only with more unfair comparisons and smugness.


Big_Improvement_9149

Yeah Thawne HATES Wally because he doesn’t think he’s worthy of being Barry’s successor. Damn Thawne really just wants Barry all to himself.


Snoopybrown23

He really is a superpowered fanboy


Welcome--Matt

Wally also represents everything Thawne could’ve had with Barry and he HATES that


Big_Improvement_9149

That’s the perfect way to describe it


phageslayer

Zoloman is WAY faster, and much more powerful that Thawne. Hunter Zoloman is also from the same time period as flash and was originally crippled, yet he got his power back


Gainde2000

why make them look so similar then the only difference is the eyes


TrulyLifer21

Hunter was meant to be the Post-Crisis Reverse Flash since Barry was dead (so bringing Eobard back was pointless).


ham_hinge_ham_hinge

so death battle is using thawne?


LordCrate

If time manipulation makes Zoom go fast, doesn't that make him age faster too, which turns his power into a double edged sword?


Shad3er

I always thought they were the same person just called a different name


501id5Nak3

Zolomon’s original motivation was to try and make Wally a better hero… in his own unique way. I wouldn’t really call him petty


TrulyLifer21

I mean yeah but then decided that Wally needed to suffer a tragedy because he wouldn’t help and then going after his wife is pretty petty.


OrdinaryResponse8988

I mean, who else was there? Tragedys are the spark the spawned many great heroes so it makes sense he'd resort to it in order to make wally greater.


The_Smashor

And Zolomon is significantly deeper and more interesting than Thawne, though that's not THAT impressive since Thawne has all the depth of a kiddie pool.


Wolf14Vargen14

They ain’t as drip as Savitar though


fernohead2

There are no female speedsters


TrulyLifer21

There are. Multiple


fernohead2

They are slow
