Can't wait till they foul up the Flash with this sort of thinking. Vomit.
"He does need powers to become The Flash,
" said Geoff Johns. "He will be
The Flash" echoed Andrew Kreisberg.
They also said Oliver doesn't want to be called "The Hood" anymore. The S2 trailer teased the name "Green Arrow". So yeah, it's not a definitive thing.
