The Flash’s super speed powers make him extremely difficult to beat; he can react faster than anyone else and can dismantle defenses before the opponent realizes what happened. Assuming he had the right time and resources, Batman could potentially stop Flash, but otherwise no hero can truly stop Flash except Green Lantern. Much of the Flash’s power is derived from movement, so anything that can stop him or keep him still will put him at a disadvantage – in this case, an energy barrier. It is the same principle that Captain Cold uses when fighting the Flash: create a barrier, something that he cannot penetrate. Unfortunately, Captain Cold’s technology has obvious weaknesses that a Green Lantern ring does not have, making him the ideal anti-Flash weapon.

On the main line of the DC Universe, Flash Y Green Lantern are best friends, which makes the chance of a fight slim to none, but on Earth-3, the Crime syndicate shows why the ring bearer is Scarlet Speedster’s worst nightmare.
