I had expected Barry to go into 'retirement' as a civillian after reuniting with Iris, a-la Rex Tyler. Maybe be a police force contact for Wally or something. At worse, I feared him going back to the speed force after Final Crisis. But this--having his own book again. Once again, I'm reminded of just how much better DC is from Marvel these days.

Even though he was before my time, Barry Allen has always been my favorite Flash. He's the one I was first introduced to in the live-action television series, and I always felt he was a more dynamic character than Wally because of his smarts. That's why I liked it when Bart was made the flash for a bit--I felt it was going back to that.

Also like the idea of a 'Flash Family'. Waid had the speedsters as a sort-of team during his original run, but something always seemed to be missing from it. That something was Barry himself.

Hopefully this means we may see Max and Bart again sometime soon.
