So I decided to check out Flash #50 since it was advertised as the end of the Flash Wars that been getting a lot of publicity lately. After reading it, I went to this message board and found nothing for the last five issues except a thread from #49 about whether the age-old "Flash/Superman: who's faster?" question had finally been answered - which appears to have little to do with the current story.
So is it just that the TV series is so interesting compared to the comic, or is the comic storyline not worth talking much about? Thanks!
I don't read the Flash because the art, at least for a while, has been butt ugly. Plus, with Barry keeping secrets to the point it hurts his loved ones, it makes him look like a total jerk for not telling them even WHEN they already know and they ask him about it and he STILL DOESN'T TELL THEM! Plus, with Barry acting more like Batman in a red costume rather than the optimistic hero I know, I've just been completely turned off by Barry Allen. And that's why I haven't bothered reading the comic because it ain't worth it.
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?
