QUOTE: "Who would have thought it? I have a legacy of my own. Centuries before I will even be born. It's backwards. It's reverse. It's destiny." —Eobard Thawne, Professor Zoom

SUMMARY:  In the wake of the Rogue War, after all other supervillains have fallen, the fastest man alive is faced with not one but two Reverse Flashes – Hunter Zolomon, the driven madman who was once a friend to Wally West, and Eobard Thawne, the deranged future criminal who long tormented Barry Allen. Time travel has brought Zoom and Professor Zoom together in pursuit of a common goal. Using Thawne’s access to the speed force and the power of the time-traversing cosmic treadmill, Zolomon intends to force Wally West to relive the most painful moment of his life over and over again; the Flash is faced with watching Zoom rob him of his unborn children once more! The scarlet speedster is unable to fight against the combined powers of two Reverse Flashes and can only watch in desperation as his wife is brutalized again and again. He could hardly expect that his greatest hope for help will soon arrive in the form of another time-traveling speedster.
