Now we know who is really in charge of the underworld in Central City…and where they are hiding out. More than that, there is someone who knows all of Barry’s secrets and is willing to sell him out. What we don’t know is how…and what else may be hiding within the walls of the supposedly impenetrable walls of Iron Heights. This issue we start to see all of the plans coming together, and it is really bad news for the Scarlet Speedster. Want to know more? Follow us after the break!
This episode gives us the return of two villains once thought dead…but then, as Future Barry pointed out, the more you go back in time the less the rules apply. SO…..this is actually good news if you are a fan (like me) of these certain bad guys. Only 24 hours left to save Iris, so what can present-day Barry do? That’s what sets us off on a street named after the original Barry Allen artist (and co-creator of Barry Allen himself). Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
Captain Cold appears to have The Flash just where he wants him. Len Snart’s ability to take apart and reverse engineer technology has just been taken up a notch, and the Rogues may finally be able to defeat their long-time nemesis. What comes next? A truly excellent issue of THE FLASH, that’s what! Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
The Flash has faced his Rogues Gallery countless times over the years, since the early Silver Age to today, and there have always been two things you could count on. First, the Rogues have a code…and second, the Flash always wins even if they team up against him. It’s always worked…for the Flash. But, now the Rogues appear to have wised up, and this group of blue-collar bad guys may finally have the upper hand. Last issue, the Flash was tricked into going miles away while the Rogues struck in Central City. Now, what can our Scarlet Speedster do in the aftermath? That’s where we pick up with issue #16 of THE FLASH! Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
The Flash’s Rogues have always been my favorite group of bad guys in comics. Not Batman’s, not Superman’s, and certainly none from that “House of Ideas” publisher across town. There was always something special about this group of blue collar crooks. But, different storylines over the years (particularly the New 52) made significant changes to how these villains have been portrayed. Now, writer Joshua Williamson gets his chance to take on the best bad guys in comics…and how does he deal with all of this history? He embraces it all…pretty much beginning to end, and makes it work in a very solid issue of THE FLASH! Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
