Can't believe this isn't up yet:

Johns has showed his true love and affection for Wally West over the years.
I'm counting on Johns not to screw Wally over the way Kyle has been screwed over for Hal in Green Lantern.

Kyle was the GL for a little over a decade, Wally has been the Flash for nearly 23 YEARS, almost as long as Barry.

Don't let us Wally fans down Geoff

- keeping the faith for now

For years I've been in the camp of people saying "he died a glorious and meaningful death, let him stay dead". It's not that I don't like Barry, because I DO. It's just that I saw Wally grow up and take on Barry's mantle so well and I just didn't want DC to bring Barry back in a bad way and stink the legacy up, you know?

But after the last year or so when DC started dropping hints that Barry was coming back, I started to get a little excited. And now, after reading this article and knowing that Johns is at the helm, after what he's done with GL and the JSA, I know Barry will be in good hands.

My only concern is that they start messing with Jay (my favorite Flash) or Wally (another favorite of mine).

Hopefully, they'll come to some kind of resolution where Barry stays on Earth prime and joins the JLA, Jay stays with the JSA, but moves to Earth 2, and Wally could stay on Earth Prime as well, but change his Flash costume back to his old red and yellow Kid Flash colors, but NOT the name of Kid Flash. He's not a kid anymore, but having him switch costume colors would help distinguish him from Barry and besides, I always loved that Kid Flash costume \:\-\)

Oh, and also, can we please get some kind of closure with the Max Mercury deal? Either pronounce him dead or give him back his body and have him appear in the DCU.

One other thing. I know this probably won't happen, but it would be AWESOME if Geoff Johns brought the Dark Flash back and gave him some panel scenes. Maybe show him on one of the alternate DC Earths somewhere. That would be cool.
