WARNING: The following contains spoilers for DC vs Vampires # 2, now for sale

The Flash is one of DC’s most powerful heroes. Despite his jovial nature and his abilities, which are quite straightforward at first glance, the various heroes who have had the Flash cloak have proven to be incredibly adaptable with their powers when they need it. Scarlet Speedster is able to use his powers in all sorts of unique ways and is so fast that variants of him in other universes easily outclass their own speedsters – making him truly one of DC’s most dangerous characters under the right circumstances.

That is also what makes him such a threat in any corrupt form. IN DC vs vampires # 2 by James Tynion IV, Matthew Rosenberg, Otto Schmidt and Tom Napolitano, The Flash is killed before he can become a vampire – because even the mysterious vampires aiming to take over the world fear what a vampire craft would be like.

Takes place in a unique reality, where a mysterious figure has taken control of the world’s vampires, the world off DC vs vampires finds itself the unexpected target of a growing vampire nation. Among the first victims to be corrupted was Hal Jordan, aka Green Lantern. Although he tried to convince his newfound masters of the potential of having a vampire flash on their side, he was eventually ordered to eliminate the Flash. Despite his great potential and adaptability, Jordan’s mysterious vampire master feared that Flash’s powers would actually make him also dangerous as a vampire. If Flash were destroyed into one of the undead, his improved metabolism and newfound bloodlust would result in him desperately needing to eat the blood of others at an almost constant rate.

With his super speed, it would be next to impossible to prevent him from just running around the world at top speed. If he did, he could drain the blood of everyone he could get his hands on, exterminate a majority of humanity faster than anyone could stop him, and prevent the burgeoning vampire empire from being able to establish a food supply chain for ordinary human blood. Because of that, Hal is ordered to kill Barry – something the now vampire Green Lantern does, albeit reluctantly.

It is noteworthy, however, that this is not the first time a variant of Flash has proven to be a world-threatening force if it is destroyed by an external force. In the world of Dophørt by Tom Taylor, Trevor Hairsine and Stefano Guadiano speedsters who become infected by the zombie-like variant of Anti-Life Equation are considered by Batman to be one of the world’s biggest threats – and the final infection of Barry Allen resulted in several further infections all over the world, including even Superman himself, when a Blighted-Flash ran into him fast enough to crack Superman’s skin.

The timeline is glimpsed across Future State: The Flash by Brandon Vietti and Dale Eaglesham, Wally West was one of the heroes occupied and corrupted by the four riders, making the speedster the deadly famine. The force played a major role in crushing the Teen Titans, eliminating what was left of the Flash family, and ultimately helped pave the way for Raven to become the universal threat known as Unkindness. The powers of Flash make him one of the most powerful and skilled heroes in the DC Universe, but his corruption into a monster would make those powers some of the most terrifying elements in already rather terrifying worlds.

Maybe it’s a good thing that Flash off DC vs vampires was killed instead of corrupt – though there are still plenty of other speedsters who can get infected and become that kind of global threat, even the vampires do not want to fight.
