[[WMG:The 2007 series's Ming is Flash's father]]
First, Ming was revealed to be Caucasian rather than an Asian type.

Then there was a throwaway reference to [[Main/YearInsideHourOutside time dilation]] between Earth and Mongo - enough for Ming's daughter to have been born after Mr. Gordon was trapped there.

Then there was {{the reveal}} that Ming was chasing the youth vampire because she had been keeping him young. A FountainOfYouth is necessary for this theory, since Ming is {physically} younger than Mr. Gordon. It so happens that there is one.

The twist at the end of the 'trapped on Mongo' two-parter -- that the prisoner was lying about Mr. Gordon being executed -- makes this theory more likely.
