Impulse on the cover of Smallville Season 11 #10 by Scott KolinsWho’s that speedster on the cover of Smallville: Season 11 #10? Last month we got a hint that the Flash/Impulse would be returning to Smallville in January’s print issues (which I think line up with December’s digital issues). The text about an “old friend” was vague, and the figure running past Superman was blacked out so that we couldn’t see who he was, but the implication is clear.

DC’s February solicitations are out, teasing a story about “speed storms,” with a cover full of lightning and…what’s that? Someone moving at super-speed behind Clark!

Here’s a glimpse of Bart Allen’s new look for the Smallville digital-first comic book. What we can see of the outfit looks to be inspired more by Impulse than the Flash, though for some reason he seems to have died his hair blond.
