Synopsis
A flashback story reveals the origin of The Flash's newest villain, Paradox, who had been a scientist studying time who accidentally gained powers that threw him out of sync with the timeline, trapping him outside of time. He ultimately returns years later, but is transformed into a powerful being who blames the Flash for his situation and plans his revenge.

Indexer Notes

Story continues in The Flash #750.

We learn that Paradox was the mystery 25th Century prisoner shown in issue #50, and was later shown to be working with Godspeed in The Flash Annual #2. We also saw Chris (prior to becoming Paradox) and his family in background scenes during The Flash: Year One storyline in issues #70-75.
