The Black Flash is still looking to “save” the Speed Force by killing the avatars of the other Forces (Strength, Sage, Still). One of them has already been killed, and Barry Allen is determined that no one else dies today. Can the Flash make good on that promise? Things have gotten a bit more complicated with the arrival of the “One True Flash” – and in case you don’t know who THAT is, just follow us after the jump to find out more. In fact, why don’t you just follow us after the jump anyway? LOTS more info on a very good issue of THE FLASH!
The gang’s all here…including some blasts from the past no one would have expected (unless you’ve seen all the promos, trailers, articles and other spoilers for who would show up). It’s the 100th Episode of THE FLASH! We have a VERY wild ride ahead, so let’s just go straight to the review, right? Right!
Joshua Williamson has delivered an amazing end to FLASH WAR, with all the elements one needs for an epic conclusion. The battle ends with major consequences for all. Not all the outcomes are good…but some are outstanding! We set the stage for HUGE adventures going forward without diminishing the impact of this arc. And, we finally answer the question, “Who IS the Fastest Man Alive?” Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
SPOILERS AHEAD! If you haven’t read THE FLASH #50, STOP HERE and read it first! You will be glad you did!
FLASH WAR is turning out to have a massive scope – the entire Justice League is out to stop Barry and Wally as they race around the world. Zoom has sent Wally on a mission to break the Speed Force itself, thinking that this was the only way to save his family. Will it work? Can Barry stop him? Can anyone stop Wally? Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
The best part of “Flash War” to me is also what makes the REBIRTH era so much fun – we are finally recognizing everything in the rich history of the DCU. Most especially here, we are seeing the best of both Barry’s Silver Age time and Wally’s era as the lead Flash as well. While a lot of fans are picking #TeamBarry or #TeamWally, you really don’t have to pick a side to enjoy THIS ride. We are in the middle of what could well be the most significant story arc since before the New52 began, and that’s exceptionally good news! Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
