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 Trickster – the original James Jesse Trickster – recently returned to Central City. He seems more dangerous than ever…but isn’t he supposed to be dead? I mean, I know “dead” is a relative term in comics, but what happened here? How does his story fit into canon now? Don’t worry, all questions will be answered as we bring the Trickster front and center in the latest issue of THE FLASH! Wanna know more? Follow us after the jump!
We’ve met the new avatar of the Sage Force, known as Psych…but is he someone Barry and Iris can trust? And, what ever happened to Gemini after they went in a different direction during the Flash’s last leg of the Force Quest? Don’t worry, you’ll find those answers and more in this issue of THE FLASH! And, you will still get to see a whole lot of classic characters as well! Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
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!
Not to be too punny, but I’m running behind on this review…and I’ll explain later in this post. But, I didn’t want to miss out on the chance to say a few words about this issue. It gives us an RIP on an interesting character, and sets up a new status quo for the Rogues. Just who died, and what do I mean about the Rogues? Follow us after the jump to learn more!
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!
