Speed Force

“Black Hole Rising” Review of THE FLASH #34

Before last issue’s turn into the “METAL” storyline, we were left with a HUGE surprise with the return of Meena! What could have brought her back? And, what about that quote on the cover, “My Lover…My Enemy”??? There are a lot of big things going on for Barry in a very good issue of THE FLASH – want to know more? Follow us after the jump!


Meena tells Barry about her being trapped in the Speed Force, escaping somehow to save Barry from himself…or rather, to save him from the effects of the Negative Speed Force. It’s tearing him apart, and Barry has to agree that’s what it seems to be doing.

During their talk, young Wally arrives and is thrilled to see that his friend and one time mentor is still alive, and together this trio goes to do some quick research on the Negative Speed Force at an arena set up for a demolition derby. The research helps…

…rather, it helps Meena and Black Hole!

Yep, the whole thing was a set up from the beginning! Meena wanted the research so that she could learn to take the Negative Speed Force all for herself! That gives us the latest addition to the pantheon of evil speedsters in the DCU…the Negative Flash!


I’ll give this one a 9/10 – what do YOU think? Leave your comments below!
