    Praised? Didio is the one who screwed up Wally in the first place. Johns actually gave us a great run for Wally and could have done more for the character if editorial and Didio didn't keep undoing everything what he did and messing up Wally just to keep Barry around longer.

    I don't know. I mean, that behavior is disgusting, but I'm not sure a Bleeding Cool article is going to make DC take any action unless it gains more traction. It took them forever to deal with that Eddie editor guy.

    Personally, I loved Flash War. I thought it was amazingly well done, but I see what you mean by how things have been more dour since then. My hope is that Year One is suppose to turn things around. Williamson has said the reason for it now is to remind Barry of his optimism.

    Yeah, Wally was originally supposed to appear in the Running Scared storyline. Williamson said that "The timing was off and it didn't work out"

    Yeah, I saw that too, but Lobdell seems to be invulnerable. These are not the first harassment claims laid against him as the article itself notes.

    Nothing is going to come of it unless they have some video evidence or, like, the NYT runs a piece on him like they did with Berganza. That's what it took to get rid of "one of the boys" back then and that's what it would take now. Or Scott openly admitting his awful behavior as if it was good like EVS.

    He's going nowhere and it's horrible and sad. Prepare to have Wally defined by a serial sexual abuser.

    Should we count this like a blessing in disguise. I mean it is a disgusting thing to happen, but if it gets him off Wally West...

    What did EVS admit to? I have been out of the loop for a while.

    Targeted harassment, mostly. (It's not like he could deny it). If I recall correctly, after he told a depressive person to kill themselves on either twitter or facebook a bunch of articles came to light about EVS and a bunch of his friends incessantly harassing one or more people to the point of causing some real damage in their real lives. At this point he apologized and laid low for a while, but when he resurfaced he was already running with the ComicsGate crowd and became sort of a pariah in the industry.

    I don't believe any of things against him were sexual in nature, though.
    ConnEr Kent flies. ConnOr Hawke has a bow. Batman's kid is named DamiAn.

    Thank you.

    The only thing I can think of this is that since DoomsDay Clock is already semi-officialy sabotaged, they'll use Wally to "fix" the mess of a continuity they have right now and move him oput of the Flash identity (or outright "kill" him) in the process.

    Not optimistic about it, but let's see.

    Worse, I don't know if this Lobdell thing will gain traction, but if does i don't think they are able time-wise to remove him, so this book may end up dead on arrival due to an unrelated controversy.

    Between that, the solicitation copy, and Tempus Fuginaut on the Flash Forward #1 cover, everything seems to be pointing to Wally being infected by the Dark Multiverse, tying in with the Batman Who Laughs/Secret Six storyline.

    Back in Flash #55 there was a scene where Barry saw a red blur, followed by an angry zombified version of Wally coming out of the bathroom mirror. At first Barry thought it was one of Mirror Master's tricks, then it vanished. This was after Flash War, but before the Heroes In Crisis tie-in. The story arc was about Heat Wave getting the Sage Force, but there was no follow-up to what Barry saw, no indication that it had anything to do with the Sage Force.

    Williamson spoke a bit about Wally's current situation on the Word Balloon podcast: http://wordballoon.blogspot.com/2019...nd-batman.html (from around 1:39:50)

    "We plan this stuff out so far in advance, that it's tough sometimes. Like, there's stuff sometimes you can see, you're seeding things, you're planning things and you know what's coming. It's hard sometimes to tell a reader like, wait, y'know, and hope they can trust you and have faith, and I know sometimes that's really challenging."

    "All I can say is that the story's not over."

    You know this isn't true. Kid Flash is in Teen Titans, Impulse is in Young Justice, Wally West has a mini-series coming up, Jay Garrick has appeared in Doomsday Clock and will be appearing in an upcoming Justice League story. In terms of villains, there are ongoing sub-plots with Godspeed and Hunter Zolomon in Flash, and an evil (Earth-3?) counterpart of Impulse will be in Young Justice.

    Complaining about things that aren't true just drowns out and undermines all legitimate complaints and criticisms.

    Maybe they can have Rebirth/HiC-Wally somehow cross paths with Covergence-Wally and merge the two together?
    (Just like what happened with the Superman(s) and Lois(es)?)
