DC’s March 2021 Solicitations

DC has posted their full complement of solicitations for March 2021, and here are all the ones relating to the Flash. That month sees the debut of Infinite Frontier, a new era for DC Comics (much like Rebirth and the New 52 were their own distinct eras). As such, there’s an Infinite Frontier #0 anthology out to introduce readers to the new status quo, and a variety of series are being relaunched. The Flash book continues its previous numbering, though, albeit with a new creative team as mentioned here yesterday.

You can see the solicits in full at Newsarama.

    Do you think this means Wally West has a chance of becoming the main Flash again? The full solicitation for #768, alongside how DC are getting rid of the synergy mindset they had in the new 52 since John will be the main GL and Cass + Steph are becoming batgirls, really makes me think Wally has a good chance of becoming the Flash again.

    Personally I would prefer too see Bart take over the legacy but at least Wally won’t be as stomped on anymore and the flash legacy will kinda get back on track

      The chance is certainly there, yeah. I let out a groan when I saw this stuff implying yet more Barry vs Wally competition because I’m honestly really tired of it…but I hope they can do justice for both of them. Barry’s my favourite Flash, but the way Wally’s been treated over the past ~10 years is ridiculous.

        I’d love if they did a anthology comic for Flash like they’ve been doing for other comics and say they are going to start doing more often. Then we can get a story for every Flash and no needless competition about who is THE flash

          That’d be fantastic! I think the constant competition really drags down the Flashverse and the fandom, so it’d be good to head it off by making a lot more people happy. Plus, there’s opportunity for far more Flash-related stories that can be told with different characters.
