    I've seen two different lightning bolts on the back of shirts.
    A regular bolt with one break in it at the halfway mark.
    Then another one with 3 different breaks in it

    Does anyone know which one is accurate?

    Thanks

    I am pretty sure that it is the one with just the one break in it.

    I guess I assumed that the other one was more accurate since it matches more closely to the official movie logo.

    It actually looks like neither of the lightning bolts are accurate.

    The second one seems to be missing a section.

    Also, the "FLASH" you have on the left hand pic is not at all accurate. The easiest way to tell is the "A" should have this funky serrif on the upper part. I believe "American Ringers" has the most accurate ones (that where I buy mine...and I've bought several) just keep in mind these run about 28.00 shipped. Pricey? Yes, but VERY accurate and the material is dead on velvety cotton vintage polyester.

    Almost forgot. For what it's worth, the one on the right looks VERY close right down to the color. The color on the left just looks red. The true color was an orangy type red, like vermillion. The right one looks spot on where the one on the left looks like a cheap immatation where accuracy is obviously not an issue. :unsure
