Although Bruce has possible realized that embezzling from his personal company is simply one other choice in line along with his vigilante habits, the Flash isn’t as considerate. It’s an actual question of ethics, because the panel depicts that the Flash Museum’s merchandise, together with shirts and a replica of the primary Flash, Jay Garrick’s helmet, goes to an endeavor that guests may truly assist anyway. It appears foolish that Barry wouldn’t simply point out publicly {that a} portion of the money made helps the Flash do his job as a superhero, and conduct experiments.

Of course, one in all Barry’s most notable experiments resulted in Flashpoint, the place he went again in time to avoid wasting his mom, ensuing in an alternate timeline ravaging the truth he knew. At the tip of the day, this slight depiction of how Barry chooses to go about funds with the museum showcases a personality flaw readers hadn’t seen explored earlier than. Still, Flash is at the very least open with Oliver Queen AKA Green Arrow about how he will get the money wanted for his lab. On the opposite hand, Batman may not communicate so proudly about how he fights crime on a monetary degree.
