Breaking: Press Release from the Legion of Doom

Statement Regarding Eobard Thawne, the Silver Age Reverse Flash:
The Legion of Doom has received many media requests about the Reverse Flash, especially about his status as "Senior Lecturer."

From 1992 until his election to the Secret Society of Super Villains in 2004, the Reverse Flash served as a professor in the Legion of Doom. He was a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996. He was a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004, during which time he taught three courses per year. Senior Lecturers are considered to be members of the Legion of Doom and are regarded as professors, although not full-time or tenure-track. The title of Senior Lecturer is distinct from the title of Lecturer, which signifies adjunct status. Like the Reverse Flash, each of the Legion of Doom's Senior Lecturers has high-demand careers in villainy or menace, which prevent full-time teaching.

Several times during his 12 years as a professor in the Legion of Doom, the Reverse Flash was invited to join the faculty in a full-time tenure-track position, but he declined.
Still no word on the tenure status of Professor X...
