    He's accidentally gone from regular speed to near light speed before. So it's so instant even he doesn't notice it sometimes.

    On the other hand, in Johns' run he had to run across Keystone City to...

    Really weird to see the show's trashing of Roy and Wally extend into the comics for synergy.

    Amusingly, the most popular thing on Webtoons is a romance/drama based on Greek mythology called Lore Olympus.

    A sort of updated SA/BA one, considering the image had the Tornado Twins (who Barry has never interacted with outside of them being evil brainwashed Thawne subordinates) and Wallace.

    Yeah, he's basically doing what Alexander Luthor tried to do, to everyone. An Infinite multiverse where infinite people have their infinite paradises.

    This, to me, is very reminiscent of the...

    A lot of the New 52 was expressly against anything to do with sidekicks and proteges, apparently to Johns' chagrin. Not like Garth showed up much, either.

    A Bart babysitting issue does sound like a classic Impulse one off or backup issue.

    Wally's death was a clear reference to Crisis, which precedes any Speed Force stuff.

    He was in both the latest issue of Justice League and Infinite Frontier.

    Weismann likely has no interest or care for Wally considering he's never read a comic with the Speed Force in it and thinks it's dumb. If he thinks one of the core parts of Wally's Flash run is dumb,...

    They weren't really hanging around the whole time, though. They woke up for the same reason Barry woke up: Thawne gave em a good jostle and they resisted.

    You've been repeating this over and over in the Wally thread. You can't doomsay sales numbers when they're functionally the same without a renumbering and minimal advertisement.

    Didio's complete distaste for Wally is proven directly by what Venditti said after Didio left. Venditti did not have any plans to include Wally West in his (now famously awful) Flash run but was...

    This is such benign semantics as to intentionally miss the point. Yeah, sure, by your definition it'd be okay for Solomon Grundy to be faster than The Flash because he's not technically alive.

    But...

    The big problem is that the original Teen Titans members are predominantly lily white so you end up with a show that looks that way unless you racebend. The show turning into a Batman family show...

    I'm not saying anything about "feats." I just decried the idea that feats are the important thing in the post you're quoting. I'm saying that in those JL stories where Flash is occupied saving random...

    I think you're missing my point. There's some big, nasty event happening and the JL are on deck. If The Flash is there, he's zooming around rescuing people in danger from collateral damage. If The...

    It's narratively irrelevant, though. If the Flash wasn't there not doing it it wouldn't affect the story. Or they just say Green Lantern does the same thing with a bubble.

    That was written by Joe Kelly. Well, well past when Morrison was done writing JLA.

    And in that same story Flash was completely helpless to stop Fernus. Too fast, huh?

    Kind of the same reason Superman doesn't. Superman's got enough speed to solve all these problems. The silly upper end speed feats for Flash are, yes, absurd but they're functionally identical to...

    That's not why Mark Waid invented the Speed Force. Again. The Flash never needed an excuse to do absurd things. Wally as Kid Flash was doing plenty of physics defying nonsense long before The Speed...

    If you're cutting it off at 1985 then Barry is retired in the future so that throws a wrinkle in this idea if you're trying to be super strict to this definition (such as Wally not recovering). Also...

    The laws of conservation of energy are also fundamental to how the universe works and basically every superpowered individual violates those somehow. Seems arbitrary to apply it to The Flash.
