How can The Flash and company defeat Clifford DeVoe?

On Tuesday, April 17, the end of the episode ‘Lose Yourself’ on The Flash saw not only Team Flash lost not only a valuable member in Ralph Dibny AKA Elongated Man (Hartley Sawyer) but their arch enemy Clifford DeVoe/The Thinker (Neil Sandilands) gained another body and thus became more powerful than ever before.

At this point, since the ninth episode, which had the CW show on a mid-season break after Christmas, DeVoe has gained the bodies of five and in total stolen the abilities of ten of the aforementioned twelve metahumans from the Central City bus. DeVoe transferred his consciousness into the bodies of Edwin Gauss (Arturo Del Puerto), then poor Dibny. DeVoe also defeated Team Flash with ease by depowering Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker).

DeVoe might be one of the most OP metahumans of all behind Superman and Supergirl, of course, a fact that would make Tim Kring’s Sylar either craving for bloodlust or stare in awe. Now, having acquired the ability of elasticity, DeVoe is almost invincible. However, no matter how many abilities he may have, he is not undefeatable.

In this list, we will name five ways The Thinker can be defeated by Team Flash and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), starting from the less popular theory for the first. Time-travel is not included as DeVoe most likely will anticipate this and can always wipe The Flash out of existence, diverging another alternate timeline without Barry. Delve can still become The Thinker (due to the manipulations of Eobard Thawne or Abra Kadabra) just may have to rethink another strategy to enact his plan to enlightenment.

The list is just a theory of my own and not fan-based from either a website, forum or a blog that had been circulated around the Internet. Let us begin.
