Zoom

Zoom is probably the most dangerous, but I'd say as an actual character, he's pretty pathetic.
Gonna have to go with Captain Cold, maybe Grodd if he were more personal.

I'll say Reverse-Flash.

@geraldthesloth:  I think of him as Doctor Horrible, only instead of starring in a sing-a-long comedy, we're supposed to take him seriously. What are his ambitions?

Gotta go with Captain Cold as Flashs greatest enemy.

To make heroes better, to show them tragedy and help them get stronger through it.

There's nothing plot devicy about him at all. He may have good intentions but the way he plans to get these done are what makes him a villain.

probably Zoom

The Reverse Flashes have taken a much more personal level of attack against the Flash. 
 
After that, I'd say Abra Kadabra.  He's the villain that hates Wally West the most.

@geraldthesloth:
I mean the only way they could make a villain that powerful and still be beatable is by giving him those motives.

Why does he hate Wally so much?

The second Zoom hates Wally because they were friends but after the death of his father in law and consequentley becoming a paraplegic, Wally refused to let him use the cosmic treadmill to travel back in time and alter events, when he did he was styck in a time loop constantly reliving the loss of his family, this drove him insane and he eventually broke out, deciding to use his control of time to manipulate heroes lives, causing tragedies in them to make them "better heroes".

Or rather, more like him. As he originally set out to be "the Flash", he felt that by enduring that torment put him a cut above everyone else. They should be looking to measure up to his standards. As I said, Doctor Horrible.

Grodd

Reverse Flash

Professor Zoom. He is responsible for most of the bad things that happened in Barry's life thanks to time travel.

Why has Grodd been pretty much excluded from this? I'd argue he's every bit as big as Zoom and Cold.

#22 Posted by Yumulu (762 posts) - - Show Bio

1-Zoom
2-Abra Kadabra
3-Grodd
4-Captain Cold

I think Flash is one that's somewhat debatable, sort of like Daredevil or Spider-Man. It depends upon who you ask, so would say for DD it's Kingpin, others Bullseye. Same with Spider-Man, some say Green Goblin, others say Ock, and others say Venom. Truth is they don't have a Joker to their Batman, they have numerous "greatest" depending upon the decade.

Agreed! Still I suppose in a manner of speaking, in this case, there's no right or wrong answer per se. They're all pretty big for Flash.

Why does he hate Wally so much? "

Because he was badly scared and almost killed in a battle with Wally.  Later, when Kadabra became a hero to the people in the 64th century, Wally had him zapped back in time, depriving him of his greatest moment of glory.  He also had a run in with the Dark Flash (an alternate version of Wally) in another dimension and whatever Walter did to him, it really really annoyed Kadabra.  He likes to spend time dunking the Flash in acid, ripping him apart and putting him back together, stranging him, making his wife cease to exist, etc etc.

The only reason I'd say Professor Zoom hates the Flash more is because he's devoted his entire life to destroying the Flash whereas Kadabra does it when he feels like it but his primary motivation is fame.

Its debatable. Franly, Zoom is the biggest threat, and has done some terrible things. But Captain Cold incecently does evil things with the intention tokill the Flash, Zoom just wants too make him better in a rather obscene way. Overall, Captain Cold is more of a villain.
