Question: Zartan asks the real president where the prison is where Cobra Commander and Destro are held. But didn't Zartan take the president's place at the end of the first movie, before those two were captured between films? So if that is something that would be told to the president, wouldn't Zartan already know? Or is this a major plot hole?

Chosen answer: Zartan is assuming the identity of the President. He doesn't have access to every single piece of information that the President knows. That's why the real President is kept alive in the case that Zartan needs information he doesn't know. Zartan can only do so much to look like and act like the President, but he has no idea about top secret information such as that. As for why Zartan would wait so long to free Cobra Commander and Destro, either that was part of Commander's plan, or Zartan has his reasons.

Question: Why does Reverse Flash have such a vendetta against Flash?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Thawne spent his whole life wanting to discover the speed force. When he did, he became The Flash of his time. But Thawne couldn't live up to Barry's legacy. It drove him mad. And drove to eliminate Barry.

Question: To destroy the bomb attached to the gray adhesive substance, Flash begins rapidly vibrating his hand, which forms some sort of energy ball which he throws at the bomb. What exactly did Flash do?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Could be a couple of examples seen in the comics. One, static electricity. The second, more plausible theory, is he moved fast enough to gather a small portion of the speed force to throw at the bomb.

Question: How does Flash's costume fit inside the small confines of his ring like that and come out so easily? And how the heck does he get it back in his ring?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Flash pushes his suit inside the ring at high speed to close the lid, locking it in place. When he opens the ring the high tension shoots it out like a jack in the box.

MasterOfAll

Answer: The Flash's suit is a friction proof high compression micro fiber designed by star labs, the suit is easily folded down to the size of a dime and is pushed into a high tension spring. To release it the Flash just clicks the rings insignia.

Question: Looking at a gun in a case, and then a picture of the Wayne family, Barry asks "What happened to you, Bruce? You were the James Bond of Superheroes." He then follows up by saying, "What turned you into the Unabomber?" What is a Unabomber?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: The Unabomber was a man named Ted Kaczynski who planted and mailed bombs between 1978 and 1995 which killed 3 people and wounded 23. Basically Barry is calling this version of Batman a psychopath.

Question: General Lane shows Hal Jordan the alien, Abin Sur, that Green Lantern in a water preservation chamber. General Lane talks about how the ring launched off in space away. Yet Abin Sur is still in his green lantern uniform. The uniforms are generated by the rings, so when it flew away, wouldn't Abin Sur's uniform vanish? Especially over the course of 8 years as General Lane claims?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: It really depends on the writer. In many stories the suit vanishes as soon as the ring is drained of energy, in other cases, where a character dies, the suit remains on the character. This could be interpreted as a way to identify the body as a member of the Green Lantern Corps. But that is just one theory among the comic community.

MasterOfAll

Question: If Reverse Flash wants to destroy Flash so bad, why doesn't he go back in time and kill him as a kid? Reverse Flash has to know who Barry is as he was able to slip his outfit into Barry's ring and put it on him. So he knew Barry is the Flash. He even calls him by name towards the end of the film.

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Reverse Flash can not kill Barry in his own timeline. If he does he will erase his own timeline out of existence, essentially killing himself. With Barry screwing up history after saving his mother, Reverse Flash is now free to kill Barry.

Question: Is Yo-Yo supposed to be Harley Quinn?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Possibly. They share a similar look but her name is never mentioned in the film or comics. She is voiced by the same actress who voiced Harley in "The Batman," so maybe.

Question: After the scene where Cyborg talks to Batman to try and recruit him, it changes to Barry running down the street past a man with a sign. The sign is red and in big yellow letters it reads "THE END IS NIGH". Is this a reference to Watchmen?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Not necessarily. Many forms of media feature someone holding an "End is Nigh" sign. It has become a trope.

Question: In the Batcave, there is a cork board with a full deck of playing cards pinned up on it, with the Joker card in the very center. Is this supposed to represent minions of the Joker that Batman has taken down? Or what is this?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Quite possibly. The Joker is Thomas Wayne's only major villain in the comics.

MasterOfAll

Answer: In Flashpoint when Martha Wayne witnessed the death of Bruce it drove her crazy and she becomes the Joker, the joker card is at the center of the board kind of as a reminder to Thomas how messed up things can be.

Question: The name of Deathstroke's ship is The Ravager. Is this a reference to anything?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: In the original universe Deathstroke's daughter goes by the name Ravager.

Question: Out of pure shock and a possible psychotic break, in the flashback of Bruce being murdered, his mother wipes his blood on her face and begins smiling in an insane fashion that greatly resembles the Joker. Is this supposed to signify that in this timeline, Mrs. Wayne becomes the Joker?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Yes. In the comic this is based on, Mrs. Wayne becomes the Joker due to Bruce's death. Except in the comics she scars her face months after his death, after Thomas says he wants her to smile again.

Question: After Barry is healed of his wounds, Batman gives him the Reverse Flash suit. Barry sighs and then begins rapidly vibrating and begins glowing. The glowing stops and he is suddenly wearing the suit that is now the colors of his suit, not Reverse Flash. How did he do that?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: In the comic, Barry goes on to explain that he could vibrate the suit at its microscopic level, changing the color of the molecules, but decides it would be faster to make a new one. Here they decided to show off the change.

MasterOfAll

Question: After Batman throws a grenade at the guy with the bug like helmet, his helmet breaks open and you see his face. He looks an awful lot like the guy who is the president in this movie. Is it supposed to be the president?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: No. Black Manta is not the same guy as the president.

Question: Reverse Flash stabs Flash in the leg with a broken rebar. So why doesn't the wound heal quickly? Earlier in the film, Barry gets third degree burns all over his body, but they heal in seconds when he gets his Flash powers back.

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: Reverse Flash is absorbing the speed force from Flash, dampening his powers. Including his high speed healing.

MasterOfAll

Question: Is this supposed to be a sequel or a reboot? It takes place as if it's a sequel, kinda like the Hulk movies, but there are so many changes and differences it's like a reboot... like the Hulk movies. So sequel or reboot?

Quantom X Premium member

Chosen answer: This is a sequel. The only major difference from the first one is the Devil's human appearance.

Question: Is the word Kyle was given at the spelling bee even a word? If so, what is the definition?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: No, unfortunately Krocsyldiphithic is not a real word.

Heather Benton Premium member

Question: Why were Pat, Tiffany and all the others so happy when they lost the dance competition? I just didn't understand.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Their score was pretty bad, but just good enough to win the bet. Getting the money was the important part - they didn't really expect to win the competition.
