The flash is my second fav character and therefore i like to think what would happen when (yes, when, not if, i have hope) i have his powers.
And that is when my mind hurts.
If i have the power to control velocity, my own and of others it gives me so much possibilities that i could pretty much do anything. Velocity is a physic property, it is simply HUGE. But that everyone knows...
What we all pretty much don´t know is how hard it must be to write
in english being brazilian an flash story. He can move at ANY speed, he can be "there" and talk to you at the same time, and it is pretty much not important where "there" is.
How do you, as an writer, put a challenge to someone like this? Even superman has an vulnerability, but the flash, is conceptually unbeatable. If you put a villian that is not as fast as he is, he will be in jail in a blink.
Natural disasters? It is an earthquake? No? Easy...
What i see the writers do, is tonne up/down his powers to fit the story arc, what is comprehensible, but sad..
