“Running Scared” Part One – Review of THE FLASH #25

While the Reverse Flash has been one of the Flash’s toughest foes from his first Silver Age appearance, we’ve seen multiple variations on his origin story, ranging from his starting out as a criminal in the future (with Barry stopping him during a trip to the 25th century), to Thawne being the descendant of a long-lost twin, to Thawne’s travel to the past to meet Wally as “Barry Allen”…you get the idea. FLASHPOINT didn’t help that matter, with Thawne’s apparent death and later reappearance in the DCU. Now, in an “Extra-Sized Anniversary Issue” celebrating the latest volume of THE FLASH hitting issue #25, we get the REBIRTH origin…one that ties together many elements of previous origin stories while giving us a fresh twist. Anyone doubt that Joshua Williamson knows his Flash Facts? Not this reviewer…and if you want to know more, just follow us after the jump!

“Finish Line” – Review of S3 Finale of THE FLASH

This season of THE FLASH has had a lot of twists and turns – let’s just do a quick review. We began with FLASHPOINT, then moved to Doctor Alchemy, Savitar, Kid Flash, Killer Frost, Gypsy, HR Wells from Earth 19…and moved all the way up to last episode’s tragic ending. How could they possibly resolve all of this, much less top the drama of last week’s cliffhanger? And, what clues will we get to Season 4? We get a LOT packed into this season’s finale, and to say “everything changes” would be an understatement this time around! Want to know more? Just follow us after the jump!

No, I don’t mean you, the wonderful followers of Speedforce.org…I mean does anyone else in today’s DCU recognize…him?

“Infantino Street” – Review of S3 Ep22 of THE FLASH

This episode gives us the return of two villains once thought dead…but then, as Future Barry pointed out, the more you go back in time the less the rules apply. SO…..this is actually good news if you are a fan (like me) of these certain bad guys. Only 24 hours left to save Iris, so what can present-day Barry do? That’s what sets us off on a street named after the original Barry Allen artist (and co-creator of Barry Allen himself). Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
