Quote:I think you're forgetting what "modern" readers have been exposed to, if you mean younger ones.
Quote:"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.
Quote:Lol! Wow! Just shows you how long I haven't been reading Flash for.
Quote:What happened to Wally?
Red haired Wally is back now... Short version, the speedsters like Wally and Jay were trapped in the speed force after Flashpoint by Dr Manhattan (of the Watchmen). Wally made it out in 2016 when Barry remembered him during the "Rebirth" stories, and the others got out after the Doomsday Clock mini exposed what Dr Manhattan did to change DC history.
