WTF are with all the powers.

Flash is super fast. End of story. Since when do his powers include:

  • Power Suit
  • Intellect
  • Danger Sense
  • Healing
  • Energy Shield
  • Energy Enhanced Strike
  • Energy Manipulation
  • Energy Based Constructs

Either Flash has gotten super powerful since the last time I read one of his comics, or people want more points and are too lazy to add pictures/trivia/etc.

He was able to create a suit by affecting the molecules. So I guess that fall under EbC or Power suit. He does have healing, his energy shield is a an aura that protects him from wind friction and bugs in the facae and more. And intellect is probably there because he has super thinking. So he thinks a lot faster then everyone and learns quicker. I don't think he has a danger sense.

So basically most of them are crap, and the rest are just byproducts, and should be included in, his super speed.

Alright, then I guess the question is why does it cover all of them, yet they have their own pages as well. It seems that this Flash page should be a concept rather than a hero if it is covering such a large number of people who have their own pages as "heroes".

we have a few pages like that, as well as the supergirl one and a few others :D

well it is managed like the supergirl and robin page so I don't think there should be a problem
