There’s a new bad guy in town, and he is being billed as one of the toughest foes the Flash has faced yet. His name is Paradox. We meet him for the first time here, in THE FLASH #88. But, we’ve already seen part of what he can do. The future version of Barry Allen, the one we thought lost after the battle with the Turtle, reappeared last issue…only to die due to this strange new villain. Who is Paradox? What can he do? And, why does he hate the Flash? We’ll get the answers in this issue of THE FLASH, in the origin story for Paradox! Wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!
When we left off last episode, Iris had been pulled into the mirror dimension by a pair of very shiny arms. Will we find out what happened to her tonight? What about the bad guys appearing with “new paint jobs” – will we see familiar faces from among them tonight? And, how good of a matchmaker is…Killer Frost? And, what about that appearance by [REDACTED]? We’ll get all those answers, and more, in “Love is a Battlefield”, the 11th episode of season 6 of THE FLASH! To find out more, just follow us after the jump!
DC has posted six preview pages for next week’s issue of The Flash, and you can see them at CBR. In the preview, we see a flashback to some characters from Flash: Year One as set-up for the upcoming villain Paradox. And you may recall that the future Barry Allen warned his past self about Paradox at the end of last issue. Check out the pages at the link!

Witness the birth of Paradox! As a hero, the Flash helps as many people as he possibly can…but Paradox shows what happens when ordinary people pay the price for super-powered battles royal. What started as a happy life of family and science turned into a nightmare when the Turtle’s attack on Central City rained down from the future—and now the story of the civilians caught in the crossfire will change the Flash’s life forever!

Now that the CRISIS is over, we rejoin Team Flash as they hit their mid-season debut. What has changed on Earth-Prime? Plenty, if you saw the end of COIE. But, there are more surprises to be found as we see how things are going now for our favorite heroes. You will see Iris West-Allen in a whole new light (no pun intended) by the end of this episode. In fact, this may be the character’s best episode in the entire series to date. We’ll see plenty of action and danger, and at least one exit…wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!
Scott Kolins has announced on Twitter that he and Geoff Johns will be doing a new Captain Cold story in the upcoming Flash #750 milestone issue, and posted a sneak peek at a page. The story will be called “Beer Run”, and seems to be approximately set during their run on the Flash book.
Flash #750 is due out on February 26th. Definitely something to look forward to!
