The Flash TV.show Spoilers ahead:
In the show Wells keeps telling that
he is from the future and enemy of the flash. So he traveled back to the past to kill Flash or Barry Allen. But got stuck in the past.
Now this show's timeline is somewhat 2010-2015 right! Around 25-28 years after Barry's birth. (I'm not sure about exact figures.)
Then I saw the information/wikia pages for Eobard Thwane and Barry for the series Arrow and The Flash.
From Eobard Thwane
Eobard Thawne (born in 2151)
Bartholomew "Barry" Allen1 (born c. 1989)
Cool! Flash and I born in the same year. But the point is, how does this fit? How does Eobard become the enemy of Flash? When Eobard's birth took place Barry was 162 years old. We know he's not immortal, so that's not possible. (Or is it?!)
Eobard brought some tech that are very advanced. But in the scene where we saw Barry and Reverse Flash fighting on the day of the death of Barry's mother, Barry didn't look too old. He looked exactly like his present self or slightly older.
Say, Flash lived longer than normal people, then Iris wouldn't have. But we saw the reporter's name as 'Iris' in the future news article that showed 'Flash gone missing'. And in this question it's written that the newspaper was showing the year 2024
There are several Flashs. How is Eobard the enemy of Barry? Barry should have been dead when he was born. I'm all messed up. How are Eobard Thawne and Barry enemies after having an age difference of 162 years? When did they travel back in time? From what year did Eobard jump to kill Barry's mother? What am I missing?
