"Thank you so much, good morning, I worked really hard on the belt, it actually contains a way of killing every one of your friends and I've worked on it for years, Barry,  I actually dug up on my world your dead mum, I stuffed her into one of your goddamned Flash rings, so hey, do you want to see her body?"
