Even DC Knows Flash’s Reverse Villain are Getting Old

And this was only in 2010. More than a decade later, characters that switched around the moralities and identities of heroes and villains have only gotten more popular. The Crime Syndicate of America recently got their own six-issue miniseries, and who could forget about the indomitable staying power of Dark Nights: Metal’s Batman Who Laughs? Captain Boomerang’s comment sounds less like a glib insult and more a condemnation of a trend that’s been slowly gaining popularity.

Sure, the idea of reversed morality character isn’t new. Batman’s had plenty ‘reverse’ villains over his long career, same with Superman and Green Lantern. But what Boomerang speaks to in his candor is the lack of imagination that comes with the archetype. It’s easy to create a villain that’s a palette swap of the hero, but it’s harder to give them depth that makes them stand out from other, similar villains. In a way, Captain Boomerang is the perfect person to address this trend. A man who fights speedsters with boomerangs might seem silly at first, but while there’s a handful of Reverse Flashes, Digger Harkness stands out with his own unique name and identity. DC might not get rid of opposite-themed villains anytime soon, but maybe they should take the words of Flash’s over-the-top enemy into consideration.
