    Kent Nelson. I first discovered him in the back ups to the Flash comics in the 80's. Loved him. Also really liked Eric and Linda but my favorite is probably Hector Hall. Just love the Hawkman...

    Ted Knights memorial service in Starman. Jacks speech gets me every time I read it.

    I don't think any of the women in IDC were treated like objects. Sue was treated like a victim but not an object. And the other female characters may not have had as big parts as Ollie, Bruce and...

    I honestly just don't think any of the examples you listed above, whether they are singular or in the aggregate, make the story sexist.

    And I think we have very different perceptions of events...

    I personally don't see what is bad or wrong about A and B. Terrible crimes are often used in fiction to make a villain look worse and to justify extreme actions from our heroes...and as far as C? ...

    You are probably right. It wouldn't come out these days. Times have changed. I doubt even a beloved show like the Office could come out these days.

    I guess I just don't get it. I loved IDC. I was glued to it when it came out. Have probably re-read it a dozen times. While HIC I despise. Different strokes for different folks I suppose.

    I know a lot of people here didn’t like Identity Crisis but I’d hardly say it backfired. Unlike HIC it was referenced much more and was the stepping stone for Countdown and Infinite Crisis.

    In addition to that so much of it doesn't make sense. Like, this is the first time we hear about the speed force being something each speedster has to hold back from exploding and killing people? ...

    Like many have said here...the comics are pretty much the same. Always have been...it is the few "big" WB movies that are dark. MOS, BVS and JL that give people the impression that DC is dark or...

    I'm not really a fan of most of his stuff. It isn't just how he wrote Barry. His plots are often weak too IMO. I feel like his Flash run gets a lot of hype because at the end he brought back a lot...

    I didn't get that at all from Williamsons run. It felt like Barry always doubted himself and bummed. I feel like it was mentioned from other characters in the book often.

    I wonder if Wally is going back to his classic 90's costume when this arc is over. He is wearing it in some of the covers but I am thinking that might not really mean anything.
