Hyper Speed:Eobard’s powers are based on speed. His movement is at Class 3000 airspeed (see below).
Deliver 100 “Good” Blows in a round
Eobard moves so fast he is able to perform 9 actions a combat round.
Resist Cold: Excellent
Air Walking: up 90ø inclines (I.E. up or down buildings): Class 1000
Water Walking: Class 1000
Create Cyclones: Monstrous damage or Shift-Y stunning or slamming
Phasing: Zoom can vibrate his molecules so fast that he can ‘phase’ through objects of less than Class 1000 material strength. This destroys any inorganic object of less than Unearthly material strength after he passes through it.
Can destroy Class 3000 material by vibrating through it
Invisibility: Class 1000 by moving extremly fast.
Vibrating Hand: Unearthly
Break Restraint: Class 1000
Spectrum Shifting: Eobard can run so quickly as to cause light to begin to slow, and experience Red Shift. Which allows him to view the lower spectrum of light that is normally invisible to the unaided human eye.
Considered Unearthly rank for Fighting for multiple attacks and evading.
Considered Unearthly rank for Agility for dodging and catching projectiles.
Considered Shift-Z rank for Intuition for initiative.
He may percieve any object’s momentum as though it were moving a Feeble speed. E.g: Arrows and bullet sized objects appear moving at 5 m/ph
Zoom is considered to have Unearthly Endurance for movement and tiring purposes.
Energy Sheath: Eobard projects an aura that surrounds and protects him from excess heat and friction when he moves allowing him to ignore the enivromental effects of friction (including sonic booms) enabling him to surpass standard speed constraints. Due to this Zoom uses the air speed column for movement and is not restricted by atmospheric conditions. This aura seems to be a by-product of the Speed Force, and can slightly blunt physical attacks, as well as the effects of windburn and friction-heat. While moving Zoom is considered to have Excellent protection vs. Physical Attacks, and Incredible vs. Heat and Friction, due to the aura that the Speed Force provides him.






Originally, Eobard thane of the twenty fifth century was one of the Flash’s greatest fans until one day he saw in the Flash museum what was going to happen to him. He snapped and became obsessed with killing the Flash and taking his place. Using super science from the future, he endowed himself with super speed and went back in time to stop Barry Allen. He went in time but the time travel left him with selective amnesia as he could not remember his future fate but did remember his hate for Barry Allen. After many run ins with the Flash and several stints for world domination with the Secret Society of Supervillains, he seemingly killed Iris Allen with a vibrating chop to her head. Iris was revived in the future. Iris was from the future where Eobard came from and lived out the rest of her life there. Barry thinking her dead went on to woo another woman who was about to marry him but Professor Zoom resurfaced and was about to kill his new bride to be instead Flash snapped Eobard’s neck from behind before he could carry out his newest murder. This was an accident as both were running at high velocity and the sudden stop caused the chokehold to snap Professor Zoom’s neck. Flash did later find out that Iris wasn’t dead and spent time with her until a few months later the crisis of Infinite Earths saga took place and claimed Barry Allen’s short but heroic life.
