The Flash is an important part of the comic book genre's legacy. It was one of the game-changers in the renaissance that superhero TV experienced in the mid-2010s and went on to become one of the most globally-successful shows of the past decade. It was also an integral part of The CW's Arrowverse, arriving on the scene as the second series in that shared universe and ultimately going on to bring it to a close nine seasons later.

The conclusion of The Flash really brought about the end of an era for DC TV. Not only did it close out the Arrowverse, it meant that we had to say goodbye to so many characters who we had spent much of the past decade getting to know. There were plenty of beloved faces that audiences weren't ready to bid farewell to, but there were also some they weren't going to miss, too.

Yes, The Flash has entertained us with some great characters over the years but not all of them have gone down well with audiences. It's a shame, because in the show's early days, it rarely got it wrong from a character point of view. In the back half of its run, though, that happened a lot more than it should have.

Taking that into account, let's look back through the Central City archives and figure out who the most disliked characters to ever appear on The Flash are.
