[[WMG: Godspeed is Zoom]]
No, not the CW Zoom, looks nothwistanding. He's Eobard Thawne of New Earth, or, rather, AN Eobard Thawne. While Eobard was separately taken from timeline by Zolomon, and from the Speedforce by the resurrection of Barry Allen, during The Blackest Night Eobard's body, without his soul, was animated by the Black Lanterns in form of the new Black Flash. His reign of death was not for long, and the dead Thawne was nothing without his soul (In the Speedforce? In the prison per Rebirth V1? Or running somewhere with Zolomon? Timeline, man). The thing is, Thawne's body was given a true resurrection by the White Entity, presumably giving him his soul. The resurrected White Lantern Thawne joined other heroes and villains of that team, before ultimately leaving in the end, saying that he is "finally going home". That means that by the end of New Earth run, there were at least two separate Eobards running independently.

Those with the proper Metagenes pooled their powers into a single extradimensional space, causing it to become increasingly sentient and influential. Their speed comes from themselves and flows ''into'' the Speed Force. The original energy comes from the [[NoConservationOfEnergy same source as all the other energy-generating metahumans]]. Possibly [[NewGods The Source]] is the source.

Meanwhile, on another world created by this event, Cass, Steph, and Wally are kept prisoner by some evil force, along with the other missing heroes. Together, the three manage to free the others and try to find a way home. Only problem is, they all have no memory of their previous lives. Eventually, both Barry and Wally are able to remember each other when they boh connect with the Speedforce, and comunicate. Wally is at first shocked to discover his uncle forgot about his existence, but quickly forgives him when Barry realizes his mistake and feels deeply guilty. Together, they go on to fix some of the damages together, resulting in reuniting Steph, Cass, and the Bat Fam, as well as returning Wally and every other hero to the universe.

He will still have memories from his pre ComicBook/FlashPoint and NewFiftyTwo days. [[spoiler: And wants revenge against Berry for erasing his entire family, related and extended, from the timeline]].

At one point in BrightestDay, Parallax was able to combine Barry Allen's speedster powers with his own RealityWarper fear-mongering abilities through possession. Once a speedster touches the Speed Force, (at least presumably) they can tap into it again. Thus, [[EldritchAbomination Parallax]], via his short stint with the Flash, [[OhCrap has acquired superspeed]].

* The reason why GreenLantern is the least altered of the bunch is because Barry and Hal are the best of friends, and due to [[BlackestNight recent]] [[BrightestDay events]] he probably knows the most about the Green Lantern mythos than any other hero.

[[WMG: The Black Flash was working for [[BlackestNight Nekron.]] ]]
Those on top of Nekron's hit list are those that escape death. The whole point of the Black Flash is that it prevents speedsters from escaping death by outrunning it-the Black Flash is a servant of Nekron created to hunt them down. He let the Black Flash exit during FinalCrisis to deal with Darkseid, and the Black Flash died afterwards because [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness Nekron had set things up to solve the problem of life]] [[OmnicidalManiac once and for all.]]

* This theory is {{jossed}} by ''[[{{JLA-Avengers}} JLA/Avengers]]''. In that series Wally travels to the MarvelUniverse and looses his superspeed, because the Speed Force doesn't exist in that universe. Quicksilver also appears in the series, and it's explicitly stated the source of his speed is something else than the Speed Force.

Flash, [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Quicksilver]], SonicTheHedgehog, [[CityOfHeroes Synapse]], {{Superman}}, even the fastest {{Transformers}} and [[Anime/SpeedRacer race car]] [[TopGear drivers]] gain their affinity with speed from it.

* Well then, since everything about Wally has been butchered, leaving the only thing that makes him seem like the original Wally is who he shares DNA with, this is Jossed, with no sign of N52-Wally getting any real acceptance from fans anytime soon.

...after a few months of it headlining on the internet. As said above people largely accepted Nick Furry's change in ethnicity. People also shrugged their shoulders and moved on with their lives a few months after one of the Green Lanterns was revealed to be Gay. Given some time the same will happen here.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Professor Zoom went one step further than we knew, prior to Flashpoint]]
It was not enough to mess with every aspect of Barry's past, from the huge to the miserably petty. Having a unique sense of time, Zoom literally pushed the timeline to just before the breaking point, setting up Barry to explode it when he attempted to save his mother. Zoom knew Barry would eventually have to try this, in effect over-clocking time itself, till one more pull was all that was needed to flatly burn itself out.

* Being upset about a fundamental change to a fundamental character doesn't make people racist. Perhaps DC had a greater degree of diversity, but should that be accomplished by race-lifting established, iconic characters? The anger isn't about race, but about the seemingly endless contempt that comic book writers hold for established characters and continuity. An ''adaptation'' which would experiment with characters' traits and backgrounds would probably go over a lot better than a continuity rewrite. Which will probably be undone eventually anyway, after the writers get tired of the shakeup.
