Does Eobard Thawne/Professor Zoom exist in the New 52?

On November 17th, 2014, /u/Yaseen121 asked the following on /r/DCcomics:

Sorta complicated question but here goes, Does Eobard Thawne/Professor Zoom exist in the new 52 I know there was a reference to him in the Flash annual #3. Also in flash-point Thomas Wayne kills Eobard and then Barry goes back in time to stop himself from saving his mother, but wasn’t his mother killed by Eobard so wouldn’t that mean there’s another Eobard around? If he isn’t then who do you guys think is the most likely candidate for the murder of Nora Allen. Oh and if it wasn’t obvious Professor Zoom is my favorite villain which is why I care so much lol.

Daniel West’s Reverse Flash

There was a reference to him, as a scientist only, in a flashforward, so the idea that Eobard Thawne still exists somewhere in the timestream is there, but that’s all we know.

Yes, with the way that Flashpoint shook out its very possible that he survived – hell, it’s possible he’d remember Flashpoint and the pre-52 continuity – but for now we just don’t know.

Obviously we got a new Reverse Flash in Daniel West in the current Flash comics, but that hardly means we won’t get another one – if there’s one thing you can say about the Reverse Flashes, it’s that there have been a bunch of them:

A rainbow of reverses…

Hope this helps, and happy to answer anything more if there’s anything else you want to know :)
