Professor Zoom is the first villain to call himself the Reverse-Flash, arch-nemesis to Barry Allen. Born in the 25th Century, he is a time-traveler who attempts to destroy everything the Flash has ever stood for through murder and deceit. Barry's twin Malcolm Thawne is his ancestor. In The Flash: Rebirth he is established as the progenitor of the Negative Speed Force. After remembering his life before Flashpoint, he became an enemy to Batman as well. He has been a member of the Black Lantern Corps, White Lantern Corps, and the Secret Society of Super-Villains. Professor Zoom was created by John Broome and Carmine Infantino, first appearing in The Flash #139. (1963)
