Eddie also became an ally of Team Flash after Barry Allen revealed to him his secret identity as the Flash, but Eddie ended up sacrificing himself to stop the Reverse-Flash, having his body sucked into a wormhole shortly afterwards. Years later, he was resurrected by the Negative Speed Force in 2049 to become its new avatar. He briefly worked as a scientist at Mercury Labs known as Malcolm Gilmore, and later became the supervillain Cobalt Blue using the Cobalt Stone.

Eddie Thawne was created by Greg Berlanti, first appearing in The Flash episode Pilot (2014).
