It definitely looked like something major was going to go down with Wally's kids, but then the ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' happened and the entire family went MIA.MIA.
** ''Rebirth'' teased a possible alliance between the Silver and Modern Age Reverse-Flashes. Again, Flashpoint happened, and it was all Thawne's doing; there's been no sign of Hunter Zolomon ever since.

*** ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawknOfJustice'': Two short cameo's to lead into Justice League, one emerging from a dream sequence implying he was time traveling to warn Bruce of something and another in security footage listed in secret files on metahumans where he stops a robbery while also causing electrical spikes.

* EnhancedPunch: In Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica, The Flash fights a speedster called Zum. Once Flash starts thinking of it as a fight rather than a race, he uses his speed to accelerate his body until his uppercut has sufficient force to propel Zum upwards at 25,000 mph. The Flash has [[RequiredSecondaryPowers the Speed Force]] to render himself immune to relativistic effects of approaching lightspeed as he runs. Zum lacks that same protection, and thus from his perspective Wally was punching him with infinite mass.
-->'''Franchise/TheFlash''': [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome That's escape velocity, by the way. Flash fact.]]

* 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.
