I was a man broken down — who gained these extraordinary powers to become free. You. You are the opposite. You were a free man who was given extraordinary powers – and now you must be broken down.
My name is Hunter Zolomon. Despite what the public believes, I am the fastest man alive. I am Zoom. But I am not a Rogue. Far from it. I have taken the name and colors from Eobard Thawne -- the time traveler known as Professor Zoom -- in order to terrorize my friend. Wally West. The Flash. I suffered through tragedy. I lost my family to it. I understand the depths it will drag one down to. And only by surviving it does one become stronger. I will recreate myself to help my friend and in turn -- the world. I will do anything to make the Flash a better hero.
It's time that I embraced the truth. Thawne was right. The Flashes do not deserve my faith. They deserve nothing. If the Flashes refuse to see the road to being a better hero...then I will take them down a road...to WAR!
My name is Hunter Zolomon but you can call me ZOOM...and together we are going to SAVE YOUR CHILDREN!
- He must face his ultimate opposite. A man who has lost his pride confidence and identity to tragedy. A man who will run with him down a hellish road and feel no guilt in bringing him there. Destiny has brought us here Flash from friend to foe. There is only one type of man who can make you a better hero. One type of man who can reverse your twisted thinking. One man. Who fits the profile? I fit the profile.
