The Flash’s arch nemesis is The Reverse Flash. If there is one thing we absolutely loved in the first season of this series was the villain, portrayed by Tom Cavanagh, Eobard Thawne disguised as Harrison Wells.  The Reverse Flash is exactly the opposite of The Flash since he taps in to the negative speed force.

7. The speed force is an actual place!

It is a temporal field of pure energy which can be visited only by ones who can tap in to the speed force. The Flash has access to this infinite source of energy which helps him get his speed and thereby also helping him travel through time.

8. Barry Allen is the strongest Flash
