Climbing through the Flash Family Tree

On January 21st, 2015, /u/Cyber85 asked the following on /r/DCcomics:

Can you also explain the flash family tree because there are so many flashes and I get confused on which is which.

TheFlash-FlashFamily

The Flash family and then some!

OK, so this is a bit of a big one so we’re going to break it down into stages to make it more manageable. We’ll be covering three main areas:

  1. The New 52 Flash Family Tree(s) – simply, by Flash standards
  2. The pre-New 52 Flash Family Tree – this is where it gets complicated
  3. Even more members of the Flash Family – yep, it just keeps going…

Names, alliases and histories of Floronic Man and Professor Zoom

On January 20th, 2015, /u/dmull387 asked the following on /r/DCcomics:

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.
