Big question

How does that hat not fly off when he runs?

Ahm, he has this side strap on his hat that goes under his chin that pins his hat in place.

I believe his hat is designed to cut through air friction that is why it can easily slide in while the flash is running.

just a theory about the hat design but the strap do exist, check out his pics at the gallery done by alex ross if i am right.

Because his hat has holes in like a siv, and the feathers make it soar through the wind, without falling off.

The speed force allows him to run without friction. So there would be no force to blow the hat off when he is running.

But I mean, I thought of the speedforce last night, and I realized, even with that, it is not a valid explanation. I mean, if I put a plate on my head, and began running down the street as hard as I could and as fast as a could, the simple motion of me constantly bobbing up and down would cause the thing to fall off. But, Ice Prince said chinstraps, so I'm good, logic wise. Now, if I wanted the truth, I think he staples it on.

why is there no lightning coming off of him when he runs, unlike the other flashes?

If you ran without friction, wouldn't you not be able to move? Or do they will their movement and the moving legs is just to aid in meditation?

What about when he was cut off from the speed force and only relied on his metagene?... :P

I have a Question. I this the same Jay before Flashpoint or a different one ? I ask because I get really confused with the multiverse.
