The Flash season 7 finally shows how the first Harrison Wells got his mysterious new time-travelling abilities. While it appeared like Tom Cavanagh’s time at the Arrowverse was when Nash Wells sacrificed himself to the Artificial Speed Force, which was far from the situation. Even though Nash and the other Multiverse Harrisons became the power to fuel the new Speed Force, 0.01% particles didn’t get included and that resulted in the actual Harrison being brought back to life. But Harrison had gotten the ability to immerse himself into some other time of his past, present, and future as a new means to journey through time. But initially, it was not explained how Harrison had received this power since The Flash simply gave a visual tease in the shape of the green energy that happens when he uses his present.
But, The Flash season 7, episode 6, “The One With The Nineties” has the solution to that puzzle. In”The One With The Nineties”, the Arrowverse presents the Nevertheless Force, which is the opposite of this Speed Force. The Nevertheless Force has been established to revolve around reversing time with Deon Owens introduced as its conduit. Deon could make something or somebody becomes a former type of itself because he did to Masonville where he caused the city to become the 1998 version of it. So instead of travelling to yesteryear, the Still Force can flip anything in the present time to be something that it was.
The key, however, is that when Deon was spotted using his Nevertheless Force powers, it had the same green energy which Harrison has when he would evaporate or re-appear in a particular timeline. Deon is also effective at stopping time itself, including anything or anyone, making the Still Force very dangerous. But thanks to”The One With The Nineties”, The Flash affirms that the first Harrison Wells acquired his forces from the Still Force, although he uses it differently. Harrison chose to return to the past so that he could keep the life he had with his wife Tess before Reverse-Flash murdered her.
But Deon was obsessed with wanting to relive a time of his life in which things were much better for him, even though it caused others to suffer from it. While Deon is now intending to use the Nevertheless Force on a bigger scale by controlling the future, Harrison could be the secret to stopping him. The further the New Forces get on The Flash, the more fascinating it’s becoming. From the fifth installment”Fear Me”, the Arrowverse introduced the DC Comics villain Psych, who represents the Sage Force, also Cecile Horton’s empath forces were a part of briefly stopping him.
Despite the fact that the Strength Force hasn’t been dealt with because Fuerza was introduced, there’s probably a character that will become significant to stopping her, similar to the way Cecile and (maybe ) Harrison becomes the contrary to Psych and Deon respectively. With The Flash’s original Speed Force back in play since most of these other New Forces have come to exist, it’s giving Team Flash one of their biggest challenges so far because the Speed Force is now having to go up against players that can go toe-to-toe with it.
