Quote:Today, DC posted a Flash poll. Basically a 'Who's the best Flash' question.
Quote:Now, knowing it's mostly modern readers who vote in these things, it was with a heavy heart I looked at the results.
Quote:But the results were unexpected, and heart warming. With over seven hundred votes cast, Barry Allen is running away with it (No pun intended).
Quote:Finally, this nonsense that Wally West is the greatest Flash seems to be a thing of the past.
Quote:Barry is king again with the readers!
I think you're forgetting what "modern" readers have been exposed to, if you mean younger ones.
"Modern" readers would only know Barry Allen, especially with the TV show. It's been 12 years since Barry came back in the comics and Wally was left behind the scenes. And it's been 10 years since red-haired Wally ceased to exist after Flashpoint, being replaced by the newer version that also appeared in the TV show.
