The Flash Season 2: 12 Big Questions We're Asking After 'Enter Zoom'

11. Why Is He Obsessed With Destroying Speedsters?

So, we don't know who Zoom is, but what we do know is that he wants to destroy Barry. And not just him, but Jay Garrick, and any other speedsters who may exist in the multiverse (still waiting for you, Wally West). He's obsessed with being the fastest man alive, and not just that but also being the only speedster left alive (if you eliminate all the competition, being the fastest isn't really that impressive an achievement mate, sorry). What is unclear is exactly why he's so hellbent on this speedster slaughter. Is it just a case of wanting to be the most powerful, or is there something else, perhaps involving his creation, that drives him in this goal?
