    Grant's said he has a Flash story in the bag but it's for Barry, not Wally. He said he loves Wally but has already written him a ton and would rather do a science based Flash story with Barry as the...

    Wally's power is irrelevant. It's like asking if Batman's too powerful with a Black Lantern ring. The event is doing its own thing. It's doubly unimportant because, unlike Batman, Wally is in no...

    She could "glide on air currents" as early as 1958. But she still used the invisible jet to get to places faster than air currents could take her. Eventually her floating around just got accepted as...

    A lot of King's work seems to be about him struggling with how terrible a person he is for the things he did in that war, and also justifying it.

    Life is politics. Comics have been political since the beginning. Not sure why you'd be surprised.

    The thing with the NTT is that they're nebulousy adult. They are shown as self responsible in other aspects. Sexual content, politics, interpersonal relationships, racism etc. There is a gray area...

    Their ex who is still in love with you and would get back with you if you just asked. The entire premise of the story is centered on shit not making sense because she's SUDDENLY crazy. There's no...

    It'd basically be a one off story of explaining why Wally hates time travel and tries everything he can to avoid it. Waid's even given the bare bones details of it, about how his one friend died when...

    Quite possibly most damning of all, it was just a very, very, very poorly written story. The entire plot of a whodunnit lies in the whodunnit bit being executed well and the ending was such a...

    The only thing keeping Waid away at this point is Harras, I think. Didio was the other one.

    That said if Waid came back he wouldn't be interested in a third run on The Flash. He readily admits he...

    Even if that's how you choose to see it, Elaine Belloc fused two multiverses together within herself. There's no female identified entity that's ever even come close to that level of power. Even if...

    Because you invest in products to increase profit in the future. It's like asking why a grocery store doesn't sell just bread even though everyone buys bread.

    Certainly not the most important to us outside the fiction(That's a slam dunk to Wonder Woman), but she became The Presence and creation is founded in her being. Nothing's...

    Wally was redundant as a hero in the show. He was demonstrably impotent compared to Bart and Barry. Plenty of reason to retire.

    It's actually hilarious to me that Bart "took up" Wally's mantle...

    It kind of makes some sense because Wally was, outside of work, very into sport and athletics and such. As opposed to Barry who's a big ol' nerd.

    Amusingly, Jay was both athletic and a scientist.

    That was certainly not a line wide decision until maaaybe Superman Reborn. Before then there was a distinct difference between Pre-Flashpoint and Post-Flashpoint Superman.
