I don't think it takes incredible powers that defy time and space to smack down a roach, even a giant one. Just a shovel and a Hefty bag.
Since everyone pretty much lets these things out now, well... my fetish is robots with people riding inside the chest. I discovered this when I got a catalog of toy robots and saw there was a whole era of these kinds of robots. Note, this is different from people riding in the robot's head, for some stupid reason.
As for the video, I really enjoyed the part where Flash's decoy idea utterly sucked, but then he beats the robot by being ridiculously clever, I didn't see that coming.

Flash is lucky enough to find a sidekick who also has super speed.
Sidekicks are always the generic brand version of the hero they hang out with. I'm trying to think of super heroes that didn't have sidekicks with the exact same powers. The only two that come to mind are Rick Jones and Jimmy Olsen.
Rick Jones is a regular teenager with no super powers; he just had a guilt complex. He would hang around with Bruce Banner feeling obligated and responsible until he changed into the Hulk. Rick is stupid enough to try to stop the Hulk physically only to get swatted away into a ottoman. Hulk stomps off, rampages through a battalion of tanks or fights a super villain, and Rick catches up with him just as he reverts to Banner. He probably has to be the one to buy the new ottoman.
Jimmy Olsen's super power is finding red kryptonite. If Jimmy was on special assignment for the Daily Planet in the Yukon, he would find the one Inuit shaman with a mysterious talisman that's really kryptonite and buy it off him. He rubs it all over himself and keeps it in his shoe the moment he gets back to Metropolis. The next time he has to use his ultrasonic watch, he can "accidentally" expose Superman turning him into banana pudding or giving him a case of gout.

Barry Allen is the fastest man alive, yet chooses to drive to work because he is a collossal lazy piece of shit.
He's trying not to expose his secret identity. That, or he's a lazy piece of shit.
Perhaps he's just really stupid? Kind of like, at the end, they promise to let the mad scientist use the prison workshop to build even bigger robots.
You can tell from the scientist's shifty eyes that he's thinking, "Not a half-bad idea."
"Welp, we've doomed the entire prison, our work here is done!" ::run off::

Ah the Science Fair, the perfect place to begin my destruction!
