I know it seems a bit odd to talk about a Marvel book on a Flash website, but stay with me a moment. There are two series currently running, one at DC and one at Marvel, in which mental illness has been portrayed in a major plot line. For DC, it’s HEROES IN CRISIS, with a tragedy occurring at a mental health facility for superheroes called Sanctuary. For Marvel, it’s THE UNSTOPPABLE WASP, in which the lead character is diagnosed with bipolar disorder. So, how do the two story lines match up? Follow us after the jump!
The epic team-up (or tear-apart) continues as Batman and the Flash fight off a horde of Gotham and Gotham Girl clones. Can they defeat them in time to save Central City from the real Gotham Girl’s next attack? And, will this crisis bring Bruce and Barry back together…or split them apart for good? Wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!
