If you mean the giant strand of DNA, I didn't think of it as part of the main big bang. I thought it was just some cosmic wonky-ness because it was the end of one universe and the beginning of another weird quasi meta-physical something or other. Yeah, confusing, I know. I thought the white light part was the main big bang that Wally was running away from/with, and the blotted dark bits were what it did not reach yet.
That's the best way I can explain what I thought of it.

Okay, I've pretty much had enough of this thread.
Falcon Man, for one thing there's a certain limit to application of hard science to comics, as they tend to not work that way. For another, the hard science you were using as your argument for several pages of this thread doesn't uphold that argument, as noted by several posters.
I'm glad to see the thread didn't disintegrate completely, but the chicken gumbo stuff and other such things were crawling into trolling territory.
Basically, I don't want to see this kind of thing again.
Official Mod-Ruling - I don't see any sign of the Flash 'outrunning the big bang which is going at speed X as noted by the inflation theory', due to the golf-ball sized issue with that theory and the fact that the Flash, at that point, is running through Time. Not to mention the artwork doesn't support it at all. Additionally, the artwork actually shows him within it, so to claim otherwise is distorting the feat.
No more of that.
Also, to reiterate - the city-explosion feat can't be quantified because the narration contradicts itself.
Also, barring people hauling in new evidence, the Flash and Surfer should be considered to have speed in the same ballpark as one another for Rumbles purposes. Both have some truly insane speedfeats, even by comic book standards, both travel through time with relative ease based on pure speed, nothing more.
