I LOVE it! What do you think?





It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?

If Titans wasn't already on my pull list this imagery would get me onboard on it's own. It's so close to traditional but just tweeked enough to make it pure new awesomesauce.

I don't have The Flash on my pull list.

I'm also wondering if he'll somehow keep the Flash name, or if he'll have a new codename, like Robin became Nightwing and the original Aqualad became Tempest so long ago.

Lightning.

Speedster.

I dunno what else...

Yes, White Wally will appear as a regular in the new title "Titans", if my sources are correct and I believe they are. Titans: Rebirth #1 goes on sale on June 15th. I also believe this is the issue where Wally will put on his new costume. \:\)

White Wally did appear in The Flash: Rebirth #1, which went on sale June 8th, but he appeared in his Kid Flash costume from Rebirth. Basically, nothing more than a set-up issue. Barry Allen remains as the main star.

According to my sources, Wally WILL keep "The Flash" name. \:\)

I'll be checking out Titans for sure. Will you? \:\)

I don't think I had them pull the Titans Rebirth issue for me. Nightwing, yes, because I can't see how Dick's going to pull this off. Maybe not having Titans on my list was a mistake... \:\(

I LOVE the open-top cowl (KID FLASH flavored! YES! It's WALLY!!!!!!) and yet it's an all-red adult Flash type costume. NICE combination/compromise.

It's not bad! I do think it looks a little too much like Bart Allen, but then Brett Booth designed both their costumes and Booth was artist in the Teen Titans for quits some time, so I find my dislike of Bart-in-the-Titans bleeding over into this Booth drawn redesign.

On its own terms though it is a very nice tribute to Wally's time as THE Flash and where he is now. I like the gesture.
