Who Is Hunter Zolomon
Hunter Zolomon (a.k.a. Zoom, Zoloman) is a fictional super villain and archenemy of the Flash who appears primarily in DC Comics publications and related media. He first appeared in The Flash: Rebirth #4 (2009). Zoom is a demonic speedster genius who possesses many negative aspects of all the various incarnations of the Flash in DC Comics. He wears a dark purple costume with a large scarlet "Z" over his chest, similar to the logo for Quaker Oats' original logo from 1877–1986.
The character's suit was designed by Tony Daniel based on sketches by writer Geoff Johns. He is voiced by Tony Todd in seasons one and three of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, and by Robert Baker in seasons one and two of Justice League: War.
In 2009 Geoff Johns revealed his plans for the first post-Crisis volume of the "Flash" comic book series, which would begin with a six–part arc titled "The Lightning Saga". In The New 52 reboot, Hunter is a heroic speedster from Earth-3 charged with protecting the Titans by a Speed Force storm. After experiencing visions of an apocalyptic future in which he dies and goes to Hell, Hunter awakens his dormant connection to the Speed Force to protect himself from absolute annihilation.
Hunter first appeared in the fifth issue of Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver's The Flash: Rebirth miniseries (June 2009). In September 2011, The New 52 rebooted DC's continuity. In this new timeline, Hunter had his origin story fleshed out in Grant Morrison's short run on Justice League. Following the events of DC Rebirth, Zolomon was reestablished as the main villain in The Flash's solo series. In The New 52 continuity, Zoom is introduced as a master criminal who has made himself an enemy to the Flash. He later becomes a recurring archenemy after gaining powers from tapping into the Speed Force and becoming the new Black Flash. In 2016, Hunter appeared on The CW's Arrow verse series as the conduit of the Speed Force. He is portrayed by Teddy Sears.
Zoloman was a hero named Jay Garrick who gained super-speed in an accident and later became a speedster superhero known as the Flash. He then works alongside Wally West, first as Kid Flash and later as a full-fledged partner on the Justice League. However, when Zolomon realizes how fast he is traveling through time, and how many people are relying on him to stay young or be there for them, so that they won't die, he snaps, and he begins to hate his super-speed. He tries to move out of the city because he knows that if something happens to him, everyone around him could be hurt by it, or even die. This gives birth to a new identity as Zoom.
Zoom is also the father of Dawn Allen (previously known as XS and Impulse) from the original Legion of Super-Heroes, who would later be revealed as Barry Allen's daughter and Wally West's niece.
Hunter is introduced in The Flash: Rebirth #4 (July 2009) during a flashback sequence showing how he came to be called "Zoom". As stated previously, Hunter's secret identity is that of Jay Garrick, the original Flash. After accidentally inhaling hard water vapors (later revealed to be chemicals from a broken pipe), he gained the ability to move at superhuman speed and eventually adopted the name "Jay Garrick", inspired by his favorite comic book hero, The Flash, who in turn had inspired him to become a hero. However, Jay begins experiencing strange visions of the Flash dying at his side while running from an unknown enemy. After seeing these visions repeatedly and being urged by the resurrected Johnny Quick to take up the mantle of The Flash so that someone is always ready to save Central City when disaster strikes (as he believes that the current Flash, Wally West, is too inexperienced for the job), Jay decides to switch places with Wally and let him die in his place. Even after it's revealed that the visions are fake and he is diagnosed with a mental illness (this diagnosis is later proven wrong) and released from Belle Reve, he still plans on switching places with Wally in case the visions become true as per Johnny Quick's advice.
During one of his early battles as the Flash, however, he witnesses Zoom murdering Linda Park (the wife of Barry Allen, who is at this point trapped in another dimension) to lure him out for a final confrontation and subsequently gets stuck in the speed force when trying to stop him. After Wally West witnesses Zoom murder Linda, he eventually realizes that the "Flash" running beside him is not Barry and turns on him, forcing Jay to reveal his identity. They then battle it out as Jay tries to prevent himself from being seen by a group of children (which could be considered child endangerment). As Wally defeats him, Jay pleads with him to take his place in the Speed Force, a request which Wally is unable to grant. When Wally turns his back on Zoom (who has since revealed that he is getting weaker), Zoom takes the opportunity to knock him out and drag him into the speed force, where they are both attacked by a mysterious figure that drags Zoom away. When Wally escapes, Jay is nowhere to be found, and a message left by Zoom says that he wil Hunter is a character in the Arrow verse, and he first appeared as Zoom during the second season of The CW's "The Flash".
He was introduced in the "Trial of the Flash" storyline, beginning in "The Flash" #139 (September 1963), by John Broome and Carmine Infantino. His name is a combination of two comic book writers who had worked on The Flash: Joe Samachson and Robert Kanigher.
Zolomon's obsession with the Flash began when he was a child. His mother, Ashley Zolomon, broke her spine in a car accident while driving to pick up Hunter from school. As she lay dying, she begged his father (also named Hunter) not to let anything happen to their son. Although he promised that he would always protect him, his father was unable to deal with the loss of his wife, and ultimately committed suicide in prison after being convicted of manslaughter.
Hunter later became obsessed with understanding the reality-altering phenomena which gave speedsters their powers. After graduating at the top of his class at University West (CUW), he was hired by the Central City Police Department as a crime scene investigator. The Flash, Barry Allen, became his obsession, and he eventually began to study time travel in order to confront the speedster face-to-face.
Zolomon decided that other methods of facing the Flash were inadequate after trying to prove himself by murdering the Flash's female admirer, Linda Park. After being defeated by Wally West twice in personal combat, he fell into a coma after attempting to use the cosmic treadmill.
During "Infinite Crisis", Zoom awakened from his coma and began hunting down former Rogue speedsters who had fled from prison. He once again was seen pursuing his obsession with the Flash. He has also begun using vibra-bullets, which vibrate their target out of sync with the normal timeline, essentially erasing that person from time for all eternity.
As revealed in "The Flash" #225 (December 2005), Hunter's father was charged with manslaughter after killing his mother during a domestic dispute. In his grief, young Hunter was placed in the care of a child services agency. In "The Flash" #232 (October 2006), Zoom is identified as being one of several deceased inmates whose corpses were mysteriously reanimated and brought to S.T.A.R. Labs by Daniel West, the other "Black Flash", dressed in a reverse Flash costume.
In "DC Universe" , which was released on May 2, 2006, Hunter is approached by the Black Flash and inducted into his Speed Force cult after being struck by lightning. In "The Flash Annual" (2007), Zoom's new black costume consists of a leather jacket with spiked shoulder pads, gloves and boots. On the left side of the collar is a grinning white skull that seems to be a living part of the fabric itself. His mask was similar to his original mask but with pointed ears and fangs and covered in shadows and lightning bolts. He continues to wear this outfit throughout "The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive"
In "The Flash" (2007), the character is identified as Black Racer, an aspect of death in the DC pantheon, but this name has not appeared in subsequent issues of the series. The previous issue stated that he was only able to take on the appearance of other people. His identity was revealed in "The Flash Annual" (2007).
A different version of Black Racer appeared in the 1997 "Flash Annual" written by Mark Waid. This version was designed to look like a combination of both Grant Morrison's take on the character and Wally Wood's original design for the Golden Age Flash, Jay Garrick. The Black Racer is described as being an aspect of death sent to Earth from the cosmos by Nekron to collect souls that have escaped final judgment or have unfinished business. When he arrives on Earth, he takes whatever form will deliver his message most effectively. On this occasion, he appears as Jay Garrick because Wally West is unconscious at the time and unaware of his previous life as Kid Flash/Flash, thus leaving the message open to interpretation. In the end, however, the Black Racer decides not to take Wally's soul as he has still a mission to accomplish and to return would be pointless.
Who is Jay Garrick ?
Jay Garrick is a fictional character that first appeared in "Flash Comics" , cover-dated January 1940. He was created by Harry Lampert. The Flash, Jay Garrick has the power to control the speed of his own molecular vibrations, enabling him to control the rate at which time passes for him and those around him. This also grants him near-complete invulnerability against kinetic attacks and extreme velocities. His power is limited by his mental and physical conditioning and he does not possess full control over it as Barry Allen does.
In "The Flash" Vol. 3, No. 52 (August 2007), writer Geoff Johns detailed how the character's super-speed abilities come from a special connection between his brain and feet, which allow him to move at superhuman speeds from the kinetic energy he possesses on contact with the ground and lower atmosphere via electromagnetic attraction and repulsion respectively. However, in his first appearance this was not explained. Although Garrick received his powers by inhaling hard water vapors, he does not require physical contact with the ground to enable his super speed.
Garrick's super-speed abilities allow him to run at speeds approaching that of light and even potentially surpass it. This would give him the appearance of vibrating, or becoming invisible when running at such speeds.
During "Crisis on Infinite Earths" (April 1985-March 1986), the Anti-Monitor causes a tear in time which alters history and changes Garrick's super speed to that of light speed. This allows him and Wally West to break the time barrier and travel backwards and forwards through time, although Jay Garrick's powers were depleted and he needed Wally West to use the Speed Force as a 'backup' for his own powers. During "Zero Hour: Crisis in Time" (September 1994-March 1995), Barry Allen uses his cosmic treadmill to recreate the accident that had given Garrick his speed, thus allowing him to achieve his original speed again.
In the Elseworlds tale "Terror Titans" written by Sean McKeever and with art by Al Barrionuevo, we see a future where several of DC's heroes have been drafted into President Lex Luthor's private super powered army of freedom fighters. In this version, Jay Garrick is one of those captured and aged considerably by the evil Dr. Achilles Milo, who then tries to kill him by injecting his body with a drug that will cause Garrick's heart to explode. This Jay Garrick is saved from death by fellow captive Robin (Tim Drake).
The New 52 version of Jay Garrick first appears in "Earth 2" (May 2012) as an African American man, depicted as a former social worker who knew the heroine Hawkgirl when she was young. He possesses super-speed which he uses to fight crime and save lives, but after exposing himself he takes on the secret identity of "Jay", claiming that any superhero should have a civilian life. On their first mission together he saves Hawkgirl's life before disappearing again.
Is Zolomon Jay Garrick?
zolomon is Jay Garrick. This can be seen in the show, The Flash. In the episode " The Man Who Saved Central City ", we see Future Jay Garrick get into an altercation with Hunter and get transported to the future. It's revealed that Zolomon is actually Zoom and he reveals his next step: Time travel back to Earth-1 so he can kill Barry Allen and rewrite reality. The season finale of Season 1 hints at an upcoming clash between Zoom and Future-Jay Garrick. Hunter has been given a distinctive (and creepy) villainous personality, becoming more likeable than when he was originally introduced as the character Zoom in " Flash of Two Worlds ".
The possibility of Zolomon being both Zoom and Jay Garrick is an exciting thought for fans, as it suggests that the Reverse-Flash storyline from Season 1 might still play into the show's future.
How can Zolomon be Jay Garrick?
Jay is only part of the name. The full name of Hunter's character is Zolomon. Jay Garrick is a character from the comics who was inspired by the actual Jay, John Gaarjik. Hunter's name does not need to be John so it can be any other name that has Jay in it i.e. James, Jason, ect.
What else do I need to know about Zolomon?
Hunter Zolomon in the comics is also known as Zoom. Who in turn is the Reverse-Flash of Earth-2. The name in itself suggests that it will create question about what will happen to Barry, since he already has his own Reverse-Flash (Eobard Thawne). So having another Reverse-Flash would make the battle against evil that much harder.
When can I see Jay Garrick on The Flash?
Jay's first appearance should be in the first half of season 2, since the second half of season 1 will feature Zoom as Zolomon. As could be seen with how fast they revealed Harrison Wells identity as the Reverse-Flash.

How did Zolomon become Black Flash?
When Zolomon was caught in the Speed Force storm, he found himself pulled back through time continually. He had no control over his movements or actions to help himself escape. His existence became a twisted dreamlike state where he could never fully wake up.
Zolomon becomes Black Flash after one of the times that he was pulled into the Speed Force storm. While he did not escape it this time, the experience left him both physically and mentally scarred. The Black Flash is both feared and respected because of his ability to go back in time to kill anyone who has committed an act of evil.
Now, Agents of S.T.A.R. Labs are conducting experiments on Zolomon to try and sever the link he has with the Speed Force, but they're not quite sure if it will work. While Jay Garrick believes this experiment will save Zoom's sanity, Caitlin Snow warns that there is always a chance it could kill him.
There you have it, Black Flash is nothing more than a poor man's Reverse-Flash, and Jay Garrick's warning might be coming true soon. While nothing has been confirmed by either Greg Berlanti or Andrew Kreisberg about whether Hunter Zolomon will become the Black Flash on The Flash.
Is Zoom the Black Flash? No. Zoom is a yellow blur, or blast.
We get it. We totally, totally get it: When we revealed that Zoom is Jay Garrick and Henry Allen's Earth-2 doppelgänger, a lot of you went right to the "Zoom = Black Flash" conclusion because he's a speedster in a dark costume. Well, from where we're sitting, that's an easy way to get around misinformation, and we figured you'd want the official word on whether Zoom is actually Black Flash.
We're here to tell you: He's not. "Black Flash was a character who appeared in 'The Flash,' in the comics," EP Andrew Kreisberg told reporters during a recent set visit. "We're not saying he doesn't exist in the Flash [universe], but he's not Zoom."
As Kreisberg explained, Black Flash was actually a person with super-speed who was turned into the embodiment of death for speedsters, so...yeah. Not good. But don't worry about him showing up on The Flash anytime soon, because he's definitely dead.
So why did you guys use the name Black Flash for the character?
"We actually went back and forth on that," Kreisberg explained. "There are certain rules in place for how we can use Black Flash, because it is a title that has existed in comics before."
"Honestly, it was probably more for our own amusement than anything else," EP Aaron Helbing added. "We just thought it would be fun to hide that Easter egg and let the fans find it."l no longer be using the name "Jay Garrick" because he "will always be there".
Zoom reappears during the Blackest Night crossover. During the Brightest Day event, in which dead heroes are resurrected, Hunter Zolomon is seen in a flashback battling the modern-day Flash. It is revealed that, sometime after being dragged into the speed force, Hunter's body began to dissolve due to an old injury inflicted upon him by Professor Zoom. He then underwent a metamorphosis resulting in his transformation into a new kind of speedster powered by death itself and explained to have a "link" to the Speed Force, making him far faster than Barry had ever been. In the latter part of his life, Hunter becomes insane due to the constant death and resurrection associated with his altered state. This insanity manifests as an insatiable hunger for the speed force that drives him into a homicidal obsession with eliminating every speedster in the multiverse. It is later revealed that his earlier meeting with Wally West (as Kid Flash) was not their first encounter as they had also met during Wally's time as a member of the Teen Titans when Zoom masqueraded as an Earth-3 speedster named Savitar and battled Wally, then known as the third Flash, in order to steal the speed from his teammate Jesse Chambers (the super-speed powered Johnny Quick) and bring her under his control.
