Am I right or not? If not tell me who and why?

Not really.

The Flash's worst enemies have consistantly been the speedsters.  Professor Zoom for Barry Allen, Zoom for Wally West and Inertia for Bart Allen.

Why?  Because Professor Zoom, Zoom and Inertia go after family.  And they're generally more dangerous because they're just as powerful as the Flashes.

That being said, the Rogues are nothing to scoff at and Mirror Master is one of the few villains who can keep up with the fastest man alive.  But Mirror Master will never be the threat that the reverse flashes are simply because at the end of the day, he's more concerned with having fun and making money than he is with killing people.

Wait until Flash: Rebirth.... Mirror Master will become his arch-nemesis.

Maybe.  Scudder was the most dangerous Barry Allen villain until Professor Zoom showed up.

McCulloch works better against Wally imo because Wally is such a hothead and McCulloch just looooves to piss people off.  It takes a lot more work to get under Barry's skin.  But on the other hand, one of the two things I notice about the way Barry fights (the other being how much more he uses vibration than Wally) is that he fights smarter.  And McCulloch is a really smart supervillain to go up against him.

One more reason I wish they hadn't killed off Trickster.  Barry needs some smart villains to fight.

thats what i was thinking. All of his villains seem like a joke though,eben if they could be a real threat.

Zoom seems like he should be the most dangerous person alive, if he can move faster than wally west and potentially as fast as he wants he could prcatically be the invisible man moving so fast. He could shove a kryptonite rock down supermans throat, reveal batmans secret identity and kill him, tear green lanterns arm off while he wasnt guarding him self, kill all the flashes, and find a way to kill Wonder woman before the first person he killed hit the ground and died

I've always thought the Flash's arch nemesis was Zoom because Zoom has always made the mission more personal for the Flash than any other villain he has ever faced (which is a main trait for any villain that ranks as the archenemy). Mirror Master works best in an elite, notably the Rogues. I don't recall any of the battles between the Mirror Master and the Flash having as much heat as the Flash and Zoom battles does. So in conclusion, I think whenever you want to know which villain ranks as the main arch nemesis for the hero, look at the one that causes the most damage and in this case, it's Zoom.

Flash's archenemy was Zoom. Mirror Master works best as a part of Rogues.

An arch nemesis has to be someone who can stand of equal footing with their hero. I like Grodd and Mirror Master but to be completely honest I'm not sure. The nemesis has to be a long time villain too. They need to be someone who can get under the heroes skin and hurt them at the core of who they are under the mask. I don't know too much about Flash so I can't really say.

The Flash's archenemies are Reverse-Flash, Captain Cold, and Grodd.
