You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
That quote is LIFE; not to mention, it is also the genesis of the origin of THE Fastest Man Alive: Professor Zoom.
The Flash, which airs on CW at 8 PM EST on Tuesday’s, at the moment, is my favoritest TV show, and there’s no close second. This show is on another level, bruh! If you’re not a fan of the show, or haven’t watched it yet, this post might not be of particular interest to you, and as such, I suggest you stop reading right about now, and go watch all the previous episodes from Season 1 and 2. For those you are avid fans of the show, keep reading.
Season 2 of The Flash probably might go down as the greatest Season’s in the history of Television, courtesy of the insanely gripping storyline, and of course, Professor Zoom. I just finished watching the promo for next week’s episode (S02E14), and it appears that they will be revealing Zoom’s true identity in the said episode. But before they do, there have been a whole lot of theories floating around about Who The FUCK Zoom really is – Eobard Thawne, Eddie, Henry Allen, Hunter Zolomon, etc… all of these theories make perfect sense in some alternate reality, and are highly plausible. I too have a “Zoom Theory” – mine however is slightly different than the one’s floating around. So without further ado, let’s get straight to it.
I believe, that Professor Zoom, is Barry Allen from a FUTURE Timeline. My theory is based on the movie Predestination and the Predestination Paradox. The Speed Force, with all its power, like all things in life, does have its own side-effects (Cons). I believe that something happens in the Future, that causes Barry Allen to lose his true self, and get consumed/addicted to the power of The Speed Force. Also, the constant traveling back and forth in Time, and resetting the Timelines, might have taken a toll on Barry’s mind, thus turning him into Zoom.
Again, that’s just my theory, but given how this season has gone, literally anything is possible.
I’m standing by my Barry Allen is ZOOM theory. Let’s see what happens on Tuesday.
P.S: Another possible candidate that makes perfect sense and could be Zoom, is Barry’s Father – Henry Allen.
