When I was watching the The Flash episode, The Trap (S01E20), I noticed this one strange thing:

When Hannibal Bates, also known as Everyman was in the late part of the episode pretending to be Doctor Wells, he was vibrating his hand like he was also a speedster.

But earlier in this series, it was mentioned that he does not gain the power from the metahuman he touches. So how was he vibrating his hand?

Is this Everyman's natural behavior in the comics, or was this a mistake in the episode?

    I'll have to review the scene, but I don't remember Wells' hand vibrating at all; I just remember him holding it up like he was going to start vibrating it – Jason Baker May 5 '15 at 16:53
  • The error in your recollection is that wells did vibrate his hands, in that guys dream, earlier in the episode. – user16696 May 5 '15 at 19:27
  • This made me think of another good question, but I'll post it as a separate one. How the heck did he know WHAT to do? – Omegacron May 6 '15 at 16:33
  • @Omegacron I am pretty sure he was well instructed by Wells on how to act it properly. But yea, there was clearly not enough time for that. – FanaticD May 8 '15 at 9:00

You are incorrect. He simply raises his hand mimicking Wells, but his hand does not vibrate. This was the second hint that he is not Wells. See:

  • What was the first hint that he was not Wells? – Taladris May 6 '15 at 4:16
  • @Taladris The first hint for me was the fact that Wells took of his glasses and put on "I am sad that it came this fast" face, just the moment before this scene. – FanaticD May 6 '15 at 5:46
  • @FanaticD: but Wells (the real one) does not wear his glasses when he kills Cisco for the first time. – Taladris May 6 '15 at 6:16
  • @Taladris He walked through the anti-speedster force field. – user1027 May 6 '15 at 12:17
