Barry Allen is the Fastest Man Alive, at least in the Arrowverse. And, like his counterpart in the pages of DC Comics, he gains a new power tonight. It’s not without some drawbacks, but this new power plays heavily into the plot. Let’s get up to the “Speed of Thought” and we’ll be ready for tonight’s episode. Wanna know more? Join us after the jump!
Joshua Williamson concludes one of the most consequential runs on this title that I’ve seen in my 50+ years of reading THE FLASH. There is an almost “Whatever Happened to the Man of Steel” feel to parts of this (think the last Silver Age Superman story by Alan Moore). And, it gives us a perfect ending…and beginning to hand off the baton to the next creative team. It’s the final battle with the Reverse-Flash. Will Barry repeat what he did just before COIE and kill his greatest enemy? Will Barry survive the fight? Or, will he be lost in the Speed Force for all time? Wanna know more?

“Finish Line” is quickly turning into one of the greatest arcs in the history of the title – and that’s a Flash Fact! Writer Joshua Williamson continues to throw everything except the kitchen sink into the storyline – and somehow does it without muddling up the flow of the tale. If you are a Flash fan of any era…and I mean ANY era…you’ll find plenty to cheer for in this arc. Wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!
Buckle up, folks, we are in for the ride of our lives! As for Barry Allen, he is in a battle for his life, as Eobard Thawne has taken over…everything. This arc looks to take everything writer Joshua Williamson has given us during his run on the THE FLASH and dials it up to eleven. This is the Flash mythos on overdrive. And, if you think I am geeking out too much…nope, haven’t even gotten started on telling you about this issue yet! Wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!
DC has announced an upcoming ‘what if?’ story in the Tales From the Dark Multiverse line, and this one is about an altered history of Flashpoint. The issue’s synopsis is as follows:
“Spinning out of the events of a world where a single choice by the Flash affected the entire DC Universe, find out what would have happened if Barry Allen had not put things right. If a world where the Flashpoint reality was never undone, where Thomas Wayne still haunts Gotham City as the Batman, and the Amazonian and Atlantean armies still prepare for war, will the Reverse Flash embrace this darker more deadly world and finally eclipse Barry Allen’s legacy?”
So obviously we’ll see just how bad the Flashpoint reality can get. The issue will be released on November 17th of this year.
The Reverse-Flash has put together a “family” of his own. This group of villains, plucked from across time, are simultaneously attacking Central City – each in a place that has meaning to Barry Allen! This highly coordinated assault may be more than even The Flash can handle…and that’s just the beginning of the trials ahead! Barry Allen is being tested physically, mentally and emotionally by Eobard Thawne. It’s looking bleak…and there are more terrible twists in this issue! Wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!
