Barry and Iris are on a world tour…scratch that, Force Quest…okay, pretty much the same thing, but still a great adventure. When we left them in the last issue, Barry had just met the newest avatar of the Strength Force, Fuerza! It’s speed versus strength in an epic battle – and they aren’t the only ones involved in the fight! Want to know more? Just follow us after the jump!
Barry’s battle with Eobard Thawne had its mind-shattering conclusion last issue, when [REDACTED] killed Thawne. But, if you thought things were going back to the status quo, you really didn’t catch the ending of that issue. Barry was trapped in Thawne’s Negative Speed Force, and came out of that…changed. We now see a Flash powered by that Negative Speed Force, with everything else in his life also turned upside down. This looks like the start of a great arc for THE FLASH – want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
Wally West has been drawn into the Speed Force by Savitar, who is now free to pursue his evil plans on our Earth…including the future murder of Iris West! Wally was Barry’s best hope for defeating Savitar, so what now? Barry has one hope of making this right…going into the Speed Force again! In this series, any trip to the Speed Force appears to be tied to some serious life’s lesson. This time, Barry needs to learn something important…but what? Want to know how this winds up? Just follow us after the jump!
Okay let’s deal with the BIG question….was there a Jason Mewes cameo? Yes, and it was excellent. But, you probably already guessed that would happen with Kevin Smith directing this episode of THE FLASH. This was an episode heavy on emotion and not-so-much action sequences. But, as a “calm before the storm” of the last two episodes of Season 2, this was an excellent show. Want to know more? Like, what WAS “The Runaway Dinosaur” that was the title of this episode? Just follow us after the jump!
This tie-in to CONVERGENCE moves to issue #2, with one more look at the Wally West pre-FLASHPOINT fans know and love. This was actually a stronger issue than #1, with a conclusion as good as one could hope for in this CONVERGENCE battle-world setting. Just how does Wally fare against the FLASHPOINT Wonder Woman?
CONVERGENCE is finally here, with all the timelines ever published by DC appearing once again – and the tie-ins bring us some of our favorites from the years prior to the New 52. For a generation of comics fans, The Flash was Wally West…and in SPEED FORCE #1, Wally West is once again The Fastest Man Alive! Wally, Jai and Iris are trapped under the dome in Pre-FLASHPOINT Gotham City – and that’s where we pick up in this tie-in to CONVERGENCE!
