The Flash vs Arrow: Who Will Win?
The worldwide DC fans have their own favorites that they want to pit against each other. The two most popular superheroes in the DC camp are Flash and Green Arrow. One of them is playboy billionaire turned vigilante in the Star City, while the other is a speedster who fight against meta-humans in the Central City. Both have joined “Justice League” at some point in time to save the world from a greater evil.
Both are surprisingly good leaders as well as team-players, whichever role is expected of them. Their temperaments are very different but they are ready to do whatever it takes to protect the ones they love. But the difference is in their motivations and driving forces after they became heroes. Green Arrow acquired archery skills during his adult life while he was stranded on an island for five years.
Barry Allen is a son of Henry and Nora Allen who became a superhero “The Flash”. He was struck by lightning at the time of particle accelerator explosion and gained super-speed powers. Green Arrow wasn’t born to become Green Arrow, the extreme life circumstances made him what he is; whereas it was Barry Allen’s destiny to become the world’s fastest man alive (which he is not).
What will happen if they were to fight each other? Well, most people believe that there is no contest between them. Flash is so fast that he would knock the lights out of Green Arrow before he even blinks. True, if we are talking about the comic-book world then Flash will win hands down. He even became a “god” in DC comics.
But in TV series, we have seen Arrow to be more mature and strong. Flash is slower and emotional about things. It’s possible that Green Arrow knows weaknesses of Flash and is able to strategize effectively to take down Scarlett Speedster. What say you?
