    Wraith of Zoom[edit | hide]

    During the Singularity in 2015, Hunter Zolomon, among many, were allegedly created and were given superhuman abilities. Zolomon then began operating as Zoom and gathered an army of Metahumans, terrorizing Central City and becoming an enemy of The Flash.[9] Among one of his attacks was that on the Central City Police Department, which resulted in the murder of multiple police officers, while sparing Joe West.[10]

    Metapocalypse[edit | hide]

    In 2016, Zoom led an attack on Central City, alongside his army, in an event that became known as the Metapocalypse. Zolomon was ultimately defeated by The Flash after murdering his father, and was captured by the Time Wraiths, transforming him into one of them and naming him the "Black Flash".[9][2][11][12]

    A Legion[edit | hide]

    You're Harry Wells, the man who helped the Flash defeat me.
    — Zolomon to Thawne[src]

    Zolomon was taken from the moment where he was captured by the Time Wraiths and restored in the Negative Speed Force with his Earth-2 counterpart's memories restored, where he encountered Godspeed and had an argument with him about who brought them back. Zolomon would then meet Eobard Thawne, the Reverse-Flash whom he initially mistook for Harry Wells. Thawne mocked Zolomon before Savitar joined the group. The speedsters were then met with the man behind their restoration, Eddie Thawne, who was the new avatar of the Negative Speed Force and offered them the chance to defeat The Flash, his team and gain more speed in the process, to which they all agreed.[7]

    Zoom charges up his lightning bolts

    Now charged with the Negative Speed Force, Zolomon and the other evil speedsters led by Cobalt Blue faced Team Flash and told them to surrender. When they refused, each member divided as the battle began. With Zolomon being followed by Khione and Chillblaine, Zolomon was led to a tunnel where a CCPD blockade was blocking the path. Zolomon then ran into the tunnel and threw a lightning at the two heroes, with Khione catching it before throwing it right back at Zolomon, knocking him out. Zolomon's body then disappeared as Eddie Thawne absorbed his speed, presumably returned to his rightful place in time.[7]

    Guardian of the Timeline[edit | hide]

    As a Time Wraith, Black Flash hunted Eobard Thawne's Time Remnant across the timeline. Thawne searched across space and time, hoping to acquire the Spear of Destiny and rewrite reality such that he was no longer under the pursuit of the Black Flash. However, his plan failed when he became an enemy of the Legends of Tomorrow, which led the Black Flash directly to Thawne and erased him from existence, only for the other Time Wraiths to pull him from nothingness and assign him as a guardian of a Fixed Point.[2]

    Possible Future[edit | hide]

    On May 4, 2024, Zolomon, now as Zoom once more, teamed up with Godspeed to destroy Central City.[13]
