Earth-11 Flash and a Multiverse of Colonels (KFC)

KFC: Colonel Corps

Remember Colonel of Two Worlds, the KFC promotional comic in which Colonel Sanders’ evil doppelganger from Earth-3, Colonel Sunder, tried to take over KFC (with Captain Cold and Mirror Master) to make it terrible?

They made another one. This time, Col. Sunder has stolen the memories of the secret herbs and spices from 11 Colonels across the multiverse: Each Colonel can only remember one ingredient, and with the Flash of Earth-11, they have to travel the multiverse to reassemble the recipe.

KFC Flash of Earth 11 and the Cosmic Treadmill

It’s as crazy as it sounds, with Koln-El of the Kingdom Come Earth (the K stands for Kryptonian), Colonel Lad of the Legion of Super-Heroes (with Impulse!), Bizarro Colonel, Red Son Colonel from the USSR, an Earth’s End Colonel who is actually a chicken. There’s even a Teen Titans Go Colonel.

I think we actually see more of Earth-11 Flash here than we did in the Superwoman/Batwoman special she was introduced in. I found myself hoping we’d actually learn her name. I’ve always been inclined to call her Barbara Allen, but there’s nothing canon as far as I know.

Actually the whole thing is oddly reminiscent of Countdown, except fun.

I’m not sure if it’s available in comic shops or if it’s a convention special like last year’s NYCC giveaway, but you can read it for free on ComiXology.
