Hello, and welcome... to the Hall of Justice!
It started with just one of them. Each had their own manmade gimmick, but they were all blue-collar criminals. Salt-of-the-earth kinda guys. Alone they would commit a daring robbery in Central City... and I'd catch them every time. Then one day they had the idea to attack me all at once and call themselves... The Rogues!
Wally thinks I saved him. That I brought him back... But really... Wally brought me back...
Life is locomotion... if you're not moving, you're not living. But there comes a time when you've got to stop running away from things... and you've got to start running towards something, you've got to forge ahead. Keep moving. Even if your path isn't lit... trust that you'll find your way.
I guess you can say that I'm taking a page out of Batman's playbook and getting to know my enemy. Without the benefit of Batman's bankroll, I'm gonna have to find an affordable place to stay... and a job to pay for it.
But the answer isn't always to do more. Problems can't always be solved by running faster. Sometimes the simplest solution is the best. I can't outrun Grodd, and I won't let him hurt any more innocent people. Grodd is right... it is over.
Unfortunately, it's just me. I'm totally outnumbered and don't know how long the odds are. So what am I doing -- biding my time? No point in that -- I don't know when or even if my powers are going to return--
You know, at least the Rogues wait until after they make their getaway before beating the crap out of each other.
It's way too early in the morning for me to wrap my brain around the idea of a future version of myself...
I've been inside the Speed Force before. It didn't look anything like this. And I still had my super-speed powers.
I'm sorry for what happened to you, Zoom, but you killed my mom, and you're going to prison for it. You're right about one thing, though. You were chosen and you could've used your gift to do good. To do better. Instead, you want to make everyone around you evil. In some warped, insane way... you actually made me who I am. I don't know how I feel about that. But I know that until you change, you will always be a failure.
When I was hit by the lightning, time slowed down and my life flashed before my eyes. But I also saw all the things I would never get to do. Solve my mother's case. Free my dad. A life unfulfilled. I told myself that if I got a second chance that I'd do everything in my power to make sure what happened to my family never happened to anyone else. That's why I try so hard to do as much as I can.
Wally is going to be a great hero someday. He already is. But after all the tragedy he's had in his young life... he deserves to be a kid.
The only thing that gets in the way of us being together is us. Why is that?
How do I catch the Rogues... if I don't know where to run?
Each of the Rogues have their own set of skills ... but that isn't what makes the Rogues special. It's that you have each other. You're a family.
Thawne was able to travel through time freely, while Wally and I always needed help. We used something I swore I'd never set foot on again. I should have destroyed it. But I saved it for a rainy day. And there's a storm coming.
You brought us here to reveal some truth about me, to call me a liar. You talk about all the people I've hurt. All the bad that I've done. But all you did was show me what you really are. A sad little nobody who wanted to be me. But no one will ever build an Eobard Thawne Museum! You and I...this thing between us. It's over.
We're more alike than you think, Ramsey! I've allowed the negativity in my life to build until it exploded before. And I've been running away from dealing with it... And I need to stop. I've lied to people who... trusted me. I felt like it was the right thing to do because it would protect others from hurting them. But it wasn't that. It was me. My lies. My choices led to them getting hurt. And ever since then I've been pushing people away because I don't want anyone else to go through that. I don't want to see the look of disappointment on their faces when they find out... I'm not the hero they think I am. So please believe me when I say I know what you're going through.
I..I believed you when you told me you wanted redemption. But, Central City needs you now. I need you now. Please, will you help me...Godspeed?
I thought... I thought you knew me, Grodd. You keep repeatedly that you can read my mind... but the truth isn't in my head, is it? It's in the one place you'd never think to look... my heart.
I was always so lost in the science of the Speed Force that I'd miss out on having fun and just cutting loose. But you always enjoyed the speed... and the day we raced, that was how you won. And now you need to remember... you're Wally West... and you're the fastest man alive!
As much as I hate to admit it... the city is changing. And I don't like it.
Maybe I just need to run and see where the Speed Force takes me.
I was always a student of the Speed Force.
I could lose. I could die. I could destroy the whole Multiverse. So I'm going to do the only thing I know how to do. Run.
I let us run alone for too long. It's time we ran together again... as a family. It won't be easy, but I believe in us.
I guess being friends has some tactical value in a team dynamic, Batman.
It's not often, Bruce, but I was genuinely afraid. You and I...we fight criminals on the ground with ice guns and magic wands. These alien creatures don't talk, they don't seem to be driven by greed or obsession or any other stuff. These creatures just consume and assimilate...
