I'm torn about this. The Shade's villain crush on the Flash is kind of awesome. I can definitely see Shade treating it as a game, and if this is set fairly early in his time in Keystone and he has gone easy on Jay so far (as the miniseries wants us to believe), maybe Jay wouldn't take it quite so seriously either. (Sidenote: what does and did Jay know about the Shade? Is it common knowledge that Shade is a ruthless and sometimes hired killer, or does Jay mostly view him as a partly-reformed thief, a la Catwoman?) Jay definitely would be appalled if he knew of the Shade's very bloody history.
