    Even without armor Savitar is still a magnitude faster than the Flash.

Maybe. But we actually don't have any solid proof of that. But your probably right anyway.

    I am more concerned with the whole timetravel plot really not making any sense at all.

It already doesn't make sense.

Why would Savitar go back in time to kill the woman he loves?

Why does he hate his past self?

Why inflict such pain on his friends?

Why mind control Julian and make him do terrible things as Dr. Alchemy?

What lead Savitar into becoming the way he is?

Why not kill Iris as a baby?

And that's just at the top of my head. This whole thing doesn't make a lick of sense to me.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
