  1. papa zero

    According to the Top 25 VS, the Rogues didn’t know that Bart didn’t have his powers. Weather Wizard actually says “Looks like neither of the fleet-foots got their speed anymore.” They see it as an oppurtunity to get payback until Abra Kadabra notices that Flash is just a “boy.” Bart is hit with the fatal gaunlet from the Rogues while running after Inertia at human speed. The villians realized that the two speedsters were running to a machine that might return their powers. The only way I can see Bart’s murder being accidental is if the Rogues all fired on Bart with non-lethal force at the same time without the intention of a synced attack. Supposedly they acted in fear that Flash would send them back to jail but all of them have been in and out of prison so many times i can’t see them being so fearful that they’d make the collective decision to kill him – a Flash they realized they didn’t even know?
