Nothing cool about this. They made Wally a murderer. Now this will haunt his character forever like Xanshi does John Stewart. Then this is a mini series not an ongoing. And finally just to signal fans that the regime at DC hates Wally West, they put Scott Lobdell on as writer. Ugh.

With a different creative team, this could be cool. That Doc Shaner cover is beautiful. But Lobdell and Booth are not nearly enough to drag Wally away from the Heroes in Crisis radioactivity.

I don't think enough time has passed where DC would be interested in fixing Wally. This reeks to me of the next patch of mud they want to drag him through.

I don't have much hope given the creative team but at least Booth seems to not have been a fan of what took place in Heroes in Crisis so maybe they'll surprise us.

This sounds better than Wally joining the Suicide Squad at least....

Some of the 2nd generation heroes without a title of their own should have back-ups in the main titles. I kinda miss that from the pre-New52 era.

God forbid they treat Wally better. He only kept the Flash title running for most of 22 years.

So this is kind of like that "GRAYSON" series where everyone found out who Dick Grayson is and he became James Bond?

Who did Wally murder? I thought he just "murdered" himself, sort of?

He didn't murder anyone downright. He just lost control over the speed force, you know, as you do, and exploded, killing off various characters like Roy Harper, Poison Ivy (who he regrow from a rose), Lagoon Boy, Protector, Gunfire and a few others. In one scene, we can clearly see a Green Lantern uniform, but their identity is never shown.
The character assassination part was not the killing, but deciding within attoseconds to frame Booster Gold and Harley Quinn for the killings in a super-complicated time travel plot.
