The Crisis on Infinite Earths has changed Barry’s world in surprising ways…and those surprises keep on coming. How does Barry deal with an Earth-Prime that conflicts in so many ways with his own memories? We get to see a little more of just how much the world has changed through the mind of none other than Gorilla Grodd! Notice I didn’t say the eyes of Grodd – that’s an important part of the story. And, we will look at more than one character in a whole new way before this episode is through. Wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!
Welcome back and Happy New Year! It has been unseasonably warm where I live…but not so in Central City. Captain King Cold has made this city into his own icy kingdom. Snart knows the world is doomed, but he wants the satisfaction of ruling his city as the world ends. In doing so, Cold has alienated himself from the rest of the Rogues, who are now actually helping our speedsters. Big battles are ahead…Wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!
The presence of all the new forces (Strength, Still, Sage) is causing the Speed Force to fade away. Barry and all the speedsters are getting slower. Without something to turn things around, the Speed Force itself will die! Who can save the Speed Force? By now we have that answer – but the presence of [REDACTED] places all other force users in danger! Barry is once again trying to save everyone, but that plan is quickly falling apart. That’s where we pick up in THE FLASH #78 – 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!
This episode has SO much going for it…TWO new Rogues for the show, a reappearance of sorts from another Rogue…and that’s not all! This episode gives us Harry…and Harry…and Harry…and…I’ll explain…AFTER the jump!
