Didn't get the whole run, I started when Wally was coming home from being stranded in the future and met John Fox. They need to do an episode of this on the show. Or maybe the tail end of Savitar? Somewhere around there.
if you ever get the chance go back and start when he takes up the mantle it is fantastic growth and a great supporting cast
Pretty sure she says the lightning rod line
essentially this, heck in the flash show he has brown/red hair looooolI don't think it's a coincidence that when they adapt Flash, the characterization is more Wally than classic Barry. Though I like the forensic scientist bent. When we're comparing similar situations like when Hal came back, he at least had a very different personality than Kyle, John and Guy. (though John is one of those characters who I feel pulled a Freeze and really came into their own in adaption)
Barry never really had a strong personality to begin with and I felt meant much more when he was gone. Though I've gotten a lot more settled with it all these days.
C'mon. He's a REDHEAD.
See this, Spider-man? WALLY WEST was offered to sell his marriage to the devil to save someone, and he was SO AWESOME he managed to trick him into giving it back because his love was too much for the dope to handle.
He was a great every dude who wasn't created in the attitude era. Wally is basically the Sonic the Hedgehog of speedsters.
Johns isn't really to fault. Didio and Morrison were the ones that decided to bring Barry back during Final Crisis and make him the main Flash again. Johns only took the Flash Rebirth gig because he wanted to add to the Flash mythos - Zoom Corps, Negative Speed Force, Hot Pursuit, and a bunch of other things he never got a chance to do. He also wanted a second book with Wally. Unfortunately a lot of that got derailed when his superiors decided to use Flashpoint as an opportunity to reboot.
That's really only because they brought Barry back. For instance, I found it interesting that when NRS did their MKvsDC game, their Flash was Wally, but when Injustice came around after Flashpoint, it was Barry in Injustice. He's in a ton of video games still, though. Wally was going to also be the Flash in the cancelled Justice League Mortal film...
Ray Palmer, Ronnie Raymond, Hawk, Hawkwoman, OTOH.
To me Wally is the Flash, Barry is the old Flash, and Jay is the old old FlashThat pretty much depends entirely on when you started reading comics/watching DC cartoons, honestly. A lot of people who grew up in the 90s know Wally as THE Flash and Barry as the OLD Flash.
And then people who grew up before the 90s know of Barry as the Flash and Jay Garrick as the OLD Flash.
Really just depends on your background.
That was 100% Didio. Even after Barry was brought back, Johns had a bunch of plans for Wally, all of which were shot down by Didio. There's a reason the literal first thing Johns did during Rebirth was bring back Wally.
It's the single greatest run on any comic book ever IMO.
For real? If you don't mind ,would you please link me?
