DC has posted a 5-page preview of next week’s The Flash #3.
It may be BRIGHTEST DAY, but when a mysterious group of so-called heroes turns up, another Rogue ends up dead. Plus, the mystery deepens as The Flash witnesses another murder — his own!
The preview picks up the Brightest Day angle and focuses on Captain Boomerang. “Digger” Harkness discovers that he’s a bit…different now that he’s back from the dead. It’s an interesting development, but if what’s seen here can be taken at face value, I’m not sure it’s necessary. It seems like a second attempt (after Owen’s super-speed) to give a villain who throws weaponized boomerangs an extra edge. It’s an odd choice for Geoff Johns, who managed to revitalize the rest of the Rogues simply by taking them seriously.
The Flash #3 arrives in stores next week, on June 30.
Update: I’ve added this issue to my gallery of Dead Flash Covers!
Oh I can not wait to see this whole issue. that is it. the end. I can. not. wait. to see this issue.
Love Francis Manapul so much!
I still think Geoff is angling things to bring Owen back at some point. Somehow Digger will find out that Prof. Zoom can change the past and will team up with him in exchange for his going back in time to stop/prevent his son’s death.
What’s going on at this point in Brightest Day is that
*SPOILER ALERT for Brightest Day titles!!!*
the 12 who were resurrected in BN#8 have been displaying signs of their former Black Lantern abilities. Aquaman, Firestorm, Martian Manhunter, and now Captain Boomerang each have one of their BL powers. In the case of Digger here, he’s making Black energy boomerangs seemingly out of nowhere…very cool stuff by Geoff Johns…
