We’ve been building up to two big battles so far in the REBIRTH version of THE FLASH – and one of those battles comes to a head in this issue as Barry and a team of speedsters go up against the Black Hole. It’s a big fight, no doubt, but that’s not all we find in the 4th issue of this run by Joshua Williamson – so if you want to know more, just follow us after the jump!
Some spoilers ahead!
There’s a new speedster in town…just one? Okay, maybe more than one as both young Wally West and August Heart discover more about their own powers. Barry is having fun being a mentor again. Iris is being awesome again…and what more can you want? Okay, how about a new danger on the horizon? Joshua Williamson has an amazing arc going, and this old Flash fan is having a GREAT time reading it so far…and if you want to know more, just follow us after the jump!
This volume of THE FLASH gets off to a good start with issue #1, retelling the origin of the Flash and reintroducing us to the cast of characters…but there is a twist here that is important to note. It may seem a little much to restate the origin of the Flash again (after addressing it a bit in FLASH REBIRTH), but there are some really good reasons to do so here. This does represent a good jumping on point for new fans, but it also takes a few beats to establish just what being Barry (and being The Flash) means in this new era, pulling key points from past iterations of the Scarlet Speedster. And, the origin story is echoed in a way that directly sets up the arc. We’ll have more for you on all of that…right after the jump.
