I’d say the 90s. Based of crisis he new more about his powers and has more experience.

But if counting strictly him in his show them 2014 would win.

90s had more confidence and an overall better additude twords the power and responsibilities of the speed force… Just my opinion having watched both.

I love them both. So glad they brought John Shipp into the new series. I love both costumes, but always thought the 1990 version was so very “comic-book-looking”, if that makes any sense at all. (Which Was Amazing). But the new costume is very cool too. :sunglasses:

I went under the assumption that we are talking about him back in the day when he was on the show

It will always bother me that the 1990 show didn’t get more seasons. I have read that it was aired opposite The Cosby Show and The Simpsons which were big hits at the time and that contributed to its cancellation.

Ship wins. He is much smarter and figures things out for himself. When battling Trickster he found out how to fool him. Second Barry needs a team of work place proximity acquaintances to explain it to him.

2014 has a better support team, and 1990’s Flash would be over 50 now, I know 50 is the new 30, but I’ll still take the under 30 guy anyday.

The question is Flash vs. Flash, not Tina and Flash vs Team Flash. Old fighters beat young fighters. They are more ruthless.

well given that 90’s flash learned how to drain speed off another speedster something that not even Reverse flash can do, I would say 90’s wins. I love flash 2014 but he is still really a novice when it comes to using his powers, well the 90’s flash has learned how to use them better by the time he was captured. however, flash 2014 definitely has the cooler suit.
