“Impulse Buy” One Minute War Part 3 – Review of THE FLASH 792

The world is frozen in an instant. Only our speedsters with their connection to the Speed Force can move about at all. The Fraction is taking over the world and taking away Earth’s resources…and they are looking for “organic conduits” to the Speed Force to steal as well. Guess who we’re talking about here? This is an issue that features Kid Flash and Impulse and their unique role in the One Minute War. Wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!


Among all the froze is Iris West – and we don’t know at this point if she is even still alive. Barry is torn, but joins the speedsters to fight The Fraction. They need a safe base of operations – Mr. Terrific’s lab is is a good place. And, they need a vehicle of some sort, so let’s make some plans and…

Where are Kid Flash and Impulse?

You guessed it – they are already on their way to find something for Barry and Wally. Along the way they are hunted by Miss Murder, and that’s a tough escape to make. But in the end, they make a couple of incredible discoveries.

  • The “power cells” that keep The Fraction going contain people! Those “organic conduits” apparently are put into stasis and act as living batteries for The Fraction.
  • When they get back to the rest of the Flash Family, they open the back of this vehicle to find [REDACTED] – you’ll have to read the story to see for yourself!


  • This arc continues to be one of the best of this era – and that’s truly high praise.
  • Focusing on Impulse and Kid Flash gave us a lot of comedy but also a lot of intense action sequences. Great to see them both get the spotlight here.


Kudos once again to writer Jeremy Adams for a fantastic arc in progress. The artwork also rocks, thanks to Roger Cruz (pencils), Wellington Dias (inks), Luis Guerrero (colors) and Rob Leigh (letters). This one is a 10/10 for me – but of course, that’s just my opinion.
