In the Crisis on Infinite Earths of CW Arrowverse, the DCEU Flash meets the Flash of Arrowverse and they have fun banter. They discuss about their respective costumes. I want to know, what are the advantages of the DCEU Flash suit over the Arrowverse Flash suit. Include the Arrowverse Flash suit used in the Season 6 of The Flash with all its modifications. I want to know about the material used and the benefits of that material and also the gadgets involved in the suit.
The movie suit:
Bruce: Silica-based quartz and fabric. Abrasion resistant. Heat resistant.
Barry: Uh, yeah, I do competitive ice dancing.
Bruce: It's what they use on the space shuttle to prevent it from burning up on reentry.
Barry: I do... very competitive ice dancing.
-Justice League, 2017
The TV suit is repurposed from a prototype fire-fighter's suit. It's made of reinforced tri-polymer (??).
So while the movie suit could theoretically withstand re-entry, while TV Barry would potentially burn up, the TV suit currently has many capabilities that the movie suit does not, including (the source is the above link):
- A variant which can fit into a ring
- A voice altering device
- A floatation device
- The ability to remotely monitor the wearer's vitals
- The ability to self repair
Also, it used to have a defibrillator, but apparently that's broken.
