What do this newly-discovered dinosaur and DC Comics' The Flash have in common?

Though a flightless creature, this newly-discovered dino takes after the Roman god Mercury, and even superhero The Flash, with wings on its head.


The Roman god Mercury is a rather influential figure – a planet, an element, and even superheroes, such as the Golden Age version of DC’s the Flash, have either been named after or inspired by the fleet-footed messenger deity.
