Flash Becomes the Black Racer in Justice League: Darkseid War

Category: Covers, Flash News — By

Newsarama has the scoop: the six Darkseid War tie-ins originally titled Justice League: Gods and Men are being renamed as Justice League: Darkseid War, which not only makes more sense, but is harder to confuse with Justice League: Gods and Monsters.

They also posted this piece by Jason Fabok from the upcoming Justice League #44, revealing just what the Flash will look like when he becomes a New God – specifically the Black Racer, avatar of death.

This week’s digital flashbacks from the early 1970s include:

Flash #203 – Iris returns to her home era in the distant future. Wait, you didn’t think she was from the present, did you?
