Creating “Flash Beyond”

Flash Beyond (Danica) Character Designs

Justice League Beyond writer Derek Fridolfs writes about “Flashdrive” and the future Flash over at his blog. Inspiration for the character came from race car driver Danica Patrick and Olympic runner Rafer Johnson. Fridolfs also talks about the costume design process, Flash fans (who us?), and how to fit Flash history into the established Justice League Unlimited/Batman Beyond continuity.

Danica debuted in Justice League Beyond #19 and took the lead in chapter 20. As for future spotlights…

Fans clamoring to know more about Dani will get a chance to see her back story told in an upcoming “Beyond Origin”. It was a fun way to show where she grew up and traveled to around the Beyond Universe, as well as explore the legacy of the Flash and how she’s able to hear all the voices of the previous Flashes. I even created some new villains in there as a possible back-door “pilot” if she got her own series or more stories to help flesh out her world. But at this stage, I’m kind of doubtful it’ll ever happen.

I’ll certainly be keeping an eye out!

    Thank God they didn’t just leave her shoe plain yellow! They look like duck feet like that!

    Flash. Future. Female. Not caucasian. It’s Xs?

    I guess that would be too far into the future.

      I’m glad to see your concerns are in the right place, but then again I don’t get it either if Bruce is the biological father of Terry and mentor where does she come in like who is she related to and why does she use the flash’s aliase. Maybe it’s the suit and she has no relation.
