Another BAD thing about this issue. Though I might be wrong...

Barry's dad is arrested for the murder of his wife Nora(though I'm pretty sure he'll end being framed for it), but this would be a blatant retcon because not only did Barry's parents have a wonderful marriage but they BOTH outlived BARRY! They didn't die until after COIE.....

My guess is that Geoff wants a darker Barry? Give him a reason to always be running....

I don't like it at all. Its so unnecessary. Its ridiculous. I feel like he's trying to make Barry like Hal and Bruce...or every other hero. Like Barry has to be modernized by killing off his mom....

I loved this issue, but the two aspects of the book that I did like is Barts representation of Barrys return, and the fact that Barry feels like he is on borrowed time and cant waist a single moment

This is the first Flash comic I've ever read, and I liked it pretty well. I would probably be pissed if I knew a ton about his continuity like the others here, though. Seems pretty silly to have every character with dead parents through some tragedy. They should have left that alone. Pretty much the only part of it I thought was lame, and then I get on here to read about that. I don't care for the emphasis on Hal's dad in GL either, though, so it is only natural for me to not really care about the parent stuff I suppose.

We all know that he can't.

you ever go round to a friends house and play with action figures as a kid? And both of you are trying to be a part of what is happening, except the other kid has the better toys and won't let you use them unless he's in control of what is happening? Johns is that fucker. The DC universe will soon enough be the GJ Universe.

That's the gripe I have about it. For people like you who have never read a Barry comic or even a Flash comic, they'll think that this is apart of his origin. That's completely unnecessary. Why must every hero be a tortured soul? I hope this will be explained later but as of right now, Geoff is certainly making a fool of himself.

I can't blame you. Though it is a much better read then you probably think right now.

I'm sure it is a great read, will probably be awesome. I just don't feel like buying it yet. You never know though, there was like 40 at the LCS, and the dude said everyone that wanted one got them on their pull list. If it's still there next week I might pick it up.

Didn't bother with JSA this week either for that matter.

I am among those who don't like the retcon of Barry's parents but at the same time. I'm waiting to see how it plays out. I still loved this issue but at the same time. I think our mysterious killer is the Rival.

If you don't think the killer is Hunter, who do you think it is?

Loved it.

Only things: Who killed the crooked cops in the lab and doused themselves with chemicals and lightning if not Zoom using the Weather Wizard's staff? What was up with the dead Black Flash in the field?

Also I didn't like how Wallly was all pissy and depressed. Almost like he's not proud to be a father and resents his kids treating them like a burden. Hated that. I thought he was happy and ready to settle down for his family?

I know not very much about Flash at all, I've wanted to read it for years and I thought this would be a good time to hop on. Help me out here bros....

Well, given the similarity to another weapon Johns created during his Flash run and as we haven't seem him since then, I'd be tempted to say Cicada, but my money's definitely still on Zolomon. The Rival would also be an interesting candidate, but I'm trying to figure out his M.O. in trying to kill Barry.

well one cop was "crooked" the other seemed to be a rookie and trying to do the right thing. the cops didnt get doused it was the guy who killed the first two that doused himself it looked like.

as far as wally, he might be feeling his time is up. Barry is back and wally now has a family to be with.

How it plays out? Barry will probably take this and use it to get into Forensics, because there was never enough evidence to convict Barry's father and whoever set him up is the same guy who killed the two men and eventually become The Flash....I am not looking forward to that aspect of the coming issues.

No idea. Doesn't look like anyone we've ever seen. Not many people around these days with a real reason to kill Barry or even bother him. I seriously doubt its The Rival because thats Jay's guy and would be even more demeaning to Jay to bring back him and him ignore Garrick for Barry. Ethan has said that Professor Zoom will show up, my early money is on him. I don't think its Hunter because for one theres no wheelchair in sight when the cops break in. The eye level DOES NOT match up right, they are clearly looking up not down or even...And Hunter has never had long hair, I doubt lightning would change that.

First Question: Its most likely NOT Weather Wizards rod. Second Question: We'll see. You haven't read Flash so here's a tidbit, Fallville is Barry's home town, and Blue Valley is Wally's. Now go enjoy those moments like I did.

Third Question: I didn't see Wally as depressed or unhappy and definitely not pissy. The kids were fighting and he handled it, like any dad would. If Geoff takes Wally out of character, I'll be the first to yell. lol But I saw his dialogue as conflicting. The guy just saw his hero return. He wouldn't be doing this if it wasn't for Barry. Wouldn't you be a little bummed out if the last couple of years of your life started to mean nothing now that someone else takes the spotlight?

At this point, Wally is probably thinking about settling down now that he sees Barry isn't looking to retirement. He has a family to look after and the twins are a lot of work. He has to be there for them, and heroics may get in the way of that.

Huh? Wally's been on the Titans since the beginning of the series, I thought.

Does Hal appear in this issue?

He's been on Titans, but I believe O_S was referring to the future...instead of retirement we'll continue to see Wally in Titans.



Though I didn't mean he would retire, we know that much already.

Of course. We've known that Wally gets a new costume for a year now... and retired superheroes don't ordinarily get new costumes.
