->'''Deadshot''': You're slow, Zoom. In the old days, you never needed help. What's the problem?\\
'''Zoom''': You might say everything. [''[[DramaticUnmask unmasks himself]] to reveal [[BoomHeadshot a gaping]] [[BodyHorror bullet hole]] in his head; [[ComicBook/HarleyQuinn Harley]] gags'']\\

'''Zoom''': It was ComicBook/{{Batman}}. In [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueTheFlashpointParadox another timeline]]. Can't say that I blame him. Thanks to me, [[ApocalypseHow his entire world was going to die]]. Only [[ComicBook/TheFlash Flash]] could [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong turn back time]], and I was damned if I was gonna let that happen. I never saw it coming... but I felt it. I tried to [[{{Intangibility}} vibrate my inner molecules]] to save my brain even as the bullet was tearing through. And in that moment, that very infintesimal split-second before death, I drew [[SentientCosmicForce the Speed Force]] into me with every ounce of willpower I had left. I literally bought time. I'd expanded my moment of dying into days, maybe weeks... but it's like operating in a fog. Everything's a little unreal, and warped. I feel like I'm walking through water sometimes, and then when I speed up, I can feel my life slipping away. I'm running on fumes now... but I've got just enough gas left for ''this''.
