BiographyEobard Thawne was a fan of Flash's from the future, who replicated the same experiment that gave Flash his powers. After traveling back and learning of his destiny as the Flash's nemesis, he sought to ruin Barry's life, due in part to the fact he cannot kill him without creating a time paradox.
