Noooo, Jay came waaaay before Barry. thats what I'm saying, is Jay like just a muntant like quicksilver then, because in his so called "official" origin it says the he inhaled Hard water vapors (which if I'm not mistaken dont really give people super-powers, but hey it was the 40s) that activated his metagene. Sooo, right?

Nope. The issue pretty clearly states that the Speed Force both a.) empowers all speedsters and b.) comes from Barry Allen. That's why Max Mercury jumped forward in time every time he touched the Speed Force... he was heading toward Barry's location in time. The Force expands to reach all dimensions and all eras... meaning there's been a speed force connected to and generated from Barry Allen since the dawn of time.

Anything else we'd ever heard is now retconned. Which includes Jay's metagene.
