While admittedly my comic's knowledge on DC speedsters is 5 or so years out of date...
Jay is not Dark and Brooding
Barry is not Dark and Brooding
Wally is not Dark and Brooding
Bart was not Dark and Brooding when he was Impulse. He got whaaaaangsty as Kid Flash in a way that .... I'm going to stop comic raging now and just say that's why I stopped following him.
NonFlash Speedsters -
Max is not Dark (but he is grumpy)
Johnny is not Dark and Brooding
Jesse was not Dark and Brooding, nor was she that Dark and Brooding as Liberty Belle
XS is not Dark and Brooding
I think it's impossible to be a Heroic Speedster in the DCU and be Dark, and the closest to Brooding you can get is to sometimes be a little down in the dumps, or just be grumpy (then again, the most pagetime Max got was raising Bart, so that's kinda expected)
Villainous Speedsters, on the other hand....
