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 Arrowverse Flash suit is way more sexier.

    The DCEU Flash suit has a mighty and mysterious power that delays filming of Flash solo adventures. No-one yet knows the true extent of its might! Feb 14 '20 at 10:08

    The DCEU Flash suit allows the wearer to look good no matter how bad the film around him is.

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.
