Confused Newcomer To Flash In Need of Desperate Assistance!

#1 Edited by Jake Fury (17922 posts) - - Show Bio

Ok, so after reading Flash #8 I'm a bit confused. I know of Zoom (all-powerful guy that nobody can defeat,etc,etc,etc) but Professor Zoom? Are they related in any way? Is Professor Zoom also known as the Reverse Flash?

@Jake Fury:
Professor zoom is eobard thawne ,he comes from the future and has a face like barry allen , he idolized barry in the future but became a villian when he came to the present,he has same powers as the flashes and is powered by the negative speedforce. 
zoom is hunter zolomon and he was a FBI agent once he is just seperated from regular time allowing him to go as fast as he wants.  
Just check their page on comicvine.

@entropy_aegis:
Thanks man!  
 
I've never been a big reader of Flash but issue #8 with Professor Zoom was pretty interesting. 
 
I was confused because when I typed in Reverse Flash in the search box Zoom & Professor Zoom came up.

Your welcome,i myself am not an expert though and the name reverse-flash has been used by 3 guys,in addition to hunter and thawne another one called  the rival  (jay jarrick enemy) used it as well.

@entropy_aegis:
I'll just stick to Eobard Thawne then.  
 
Apparently, Flash #8 retcons his origin in some way.

Don't believe everything you read regarding Zoom, people tend to overhype him sometimes :)

Very true. I actually found myself liking the Reverse Flash. I want to see more from him.
