Do you really enjoy writing this swill? As if the Bart Beaver Cleaver days weren't bad enough. What a horrible time to be a Flash Fan. Such a letdown. Sheesh.

Yup, a "family of superheroes" would never work. What a stupid idea! I can't believe anyone would ever think of using that idea, especially after it failed so miserably with the Fantastic Four. :insert sarcastic face:

PS I liked the latter Bart issues, and I like this approach to Wally too. It's interesting and approachable

FF was created as a group of four adults, not parents and children. In other words, not a family of superheroes. When they have done stories with a superpowered Franklin, it's been some of the worst rubbish ever done by Marvel. This is not a good move on DC's part and hopefully will be a short run by both writer and especially artist.
