* IHaveYourWife: Almost subverted in the comic miniseries ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis: Rogues Revenge''. The agents of the Big Bad Libra kidnap the father of Rogues leader Captain Cold. They threaten to kill him unless Cold and the Rogues surrender. But the bad guys don't understand that his father's sadistic abuse and terror was the main factor in shaping Cold's personality. So he tells them that he will hunt them down, kill them, and ''kill his father himself''. The Rogues do kill the bad guys, but Cold does not kill his father. Instead he orders his teammate Heatwave to burn him to death.

The [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] Flash, '''Jay Garrick''', was, if not [[TropeMaker the first]], then the [[TropeCodifier most well-known early]] [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer single-power]] SuperHero. Earlier heroes were either Franchise/{{Superman}}-style characters with [[ComboPlatterPowers many different abilities]], or Franchise/{{Batman}}-style [[BadassNormal human vigilantes]]. Jay did one thing, and he did it well: run fast.

* It helps that the Top is a metahuman with the power to spin, and completely loony.

* TakeThatAudience: Changing Wally West into an AngryBlackMan in The ComicBook/{{New 52}} could be seen as the writers and/or editors lashing out at the constant fan outcry for his lack of presence in the reboot.

*** ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'': One of the Founding seven members of the league, voiced by Michael Rosenbaum. Tie-in comics hinted towards other Flash's existing, but otherwise Wally had [[CompositeCharacter many elements unique to Barry grafted on]].

* ContinuityRebooter: Barry Allen is this for the entire DC Universe. His attempt to repair his own personal history caused the Flashpoint reality, and then his attempts to correct that and restore the original timeline led to the New 52 reality. You never saw Wally or Jay causing so much universal upheaval!

* DeathIsCheap: Barry was the most well-known aversion in comic book history (23+ years)... and then DC Editorial resurrected him in 2008. Permanently, apparently. [[BrokenBase This has caused quite a backlash among fans]].
