Chronokinesis

Does what happened with Kid Flash qualify as this? Or as plot device disruption? - Byfield (talk) 23:46, September 7, 2014 (UTC)

I know it's a bit of a stretch but I still think it counts. On the actual Chronokinesis page, it gives the alternate name for the power being "time manipulation". That name probably fits better here because, without a doubt, Johnny Quick did manipulate time with his super speed. He can't really control time like Chronokinesis might imply but he still has the ability to affect it. Does that make sense? --- Haroldrocks talk 00:45, September 8, 2014 (UTC)
Yes and no. It was an unintended side effect of 1) Johnny vibrating to phase through Kid Flash and 2) the time travel method Kid Flash was using. IIRC it was handwaved as Johnny disrupting/resetting KF's internal vibrational frequency, making it more a form of molecular control than chronokenisis. Do you have the panel sequence handy to see if Johnny was guessing or implied/stated he'd done this to time travelers before?

Yeah. I just looked at it really quickly. You're definitely right. I think Johnny knew something was going to happen when he shook Kid Flash, but he didn't realize it was going to rip a hole in time. And, even if he did know, he didn't know what it would look like. The whole incident seemed like it was more based around the fact that Kid Flash is from the future than Johnny's powers. Like, Johnny doesn't have the power to send people into the future but he has the power to upset a time traveler's molecules. Therefore, chronokinesis doesn't fit on the page, like you said. You can go ahead and get rid of it. --- Haroldrocks talk 01:57, September 8, 2014 (UTC)
