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!
Thanks to a LOT of support from ardent Flash fans, Barry Allen is the Champion of DC Marvel Superhero March Madness at TMStash.com! The competition started with 64 characters, divided equally between DC and Marvel favorites, and just ended earlier tonight (April 6th). Barry received almost 2/3 of over 15,000 votes cast in the final round! Yes, there were multi-voters on both sides of the aisle on this one, but Flash fans were certainly the most enthusiastic in pushing the Scarlet Speedster over the top! Here’s the link to the official announcement at TMStash:
