» Six Things You Might Not Know About the Flash.
Thanks so much for the guest post, Kelson! I thought it was great “Flash” insider information!
Look at you! You were so worried about not having time for the site and you go writing guest articles for other sites! All kidding aside, very fun read.

From Article: “Barry Allen’s original run lasted 30 years and nearly 250 issues. Wally West was the lead speedster for 23 years and 247 issues”
Notice how when stating Barry’s issue count, it says “nearly 250,” to make it seem as if Barry was the Flash longer (by issue count) than Wally? Here are the real numbers:
Barry: 26 Years, 245 Issues (Main Series)
Wally: 22 Years, 249 Issues (247 + #) & #1,000,000)
I guess you could say that Barry had been the Flash for 29 years and 249 issues if you count Showcase, but that’s not really fair when you’re comparing to just Wally’s main series.
That’s supposed to be 249 (247 + #0 & #1,000,000), sorry.
Sorry, it’s actually 250 total for Wally. I forgot about the Wizard-exclusive #1/2.
Dylan, you might be interested in this detailed breakdown I made of the length of each Flash series a few years ago.
Thanks, man. Interesting.
I liked how you had some good facts here without resorting to outright spoilers (like a lot of those kind of posts do.)
