    Yes, it does sound like DLC in comics.
    Looking forward to that new cover by Brett Booth.

    Them extending Wallys story with Gen Zero and now them expanding the Wally story even more in the FCBD special could maybe mean that Flash Forward was an actual success and DC is actually smart enough to take advantage of that?

    Or is that just a bunch of wishful thinking?

    Let's address the elephant in the room:

    1- How old are these kids? Is this going to be Arisia situation where they are 5 years old but have the body of 12?

    2- Where do we put them? Clearly Wallace has to be put somewhere. We will have either two Impulses or two Kid Flashes. How's that gonna work out?

    Questions questions....I'm not happy with this, clearly.

    Well, Flash Forward sells nearly as much as Williamson’s Flash, so, indeed, it would be smart to capitalize on this story. And the reception was really good.

    But we’re talking about Wally West. You never know with DC and Barry's bodyguard.

    1. Yes. That was already the case before Flashpoint anyway. Apparently the speedster powers, which they were born with, caused accelerated maturity.

    2. Yeah, that's a problem. Maybe Wallace will graduate to a new identity (5G may well age him up another few years), thereby freeing up Kid Flash for Irey, while Bart keeps the Impulse identity?

    So Wally messed up with HIC and also created this dark matter threat. As heroic as him sacrificing his humanity for it, and that scene was written extremely well, it's just Wally cleaning up his own mess.

    I would have preferred as far as HIC that they at least would have just said Wally was corrupted or the whole thing was false rather then acknowledge that it was really Wally and he had to do penance for it.

    Also I dont like the kids so not thrilled that they are back.

    This is obviously not the end and we have more to come with Generation zero so I'm curious to see what comes and how this all will end so I'll leave my final judgement for that.

    Over all though the series itself was a really fun one even if I would have preferred a different method of redemption or "fix" for Wally.
    I brought this up weeks back about how if Wally was the one who actually created the Dark Matter infection that has caused (is still causing?) destructive mayhem in the DCU then the backlash towards him not only from members of the hero community but also from the general populace would be even worse than what he [DCed made him do] in HIC. I can easily imagine some less evil villians also getting pissed at a character who nearly ended life. So in a way this Flash Forward plot has actually made Wally's situation worse for all that he's 'fixed it' with the Hope Wand <tm>

    And yes, I have disliked the kids ever since Irey stole from another child with not only no remorse for having done so but downright arrogance. If she is Wally's kid then she took after his Baron personality. Hopefully her experience on the Dark World has made her for the better? Jai I had less of a problem with.... at least until Geoff Johns started the preliminaries for what looked like a plan to make Jai a future villain. At any rate I'm just not into kids that much. Super Sons had fun in it yet not something I sought to purchase. Would rather have a trade of Superman's Best Pal for a humor book if had to choose between the two.

    Iris is likely 13 and Jai is 12. They aged up to 12 and 11 at super speed, but they lived their lives relative to them. It's like in real life if you sent a child on a spaceship at near lightspeed for 100 years and they only aged 10 due to time dilation. They're not 100 years old just because we experienced 100 years, they're 10 because they experienced 10. I didn't see people bring this up with Bart very often and he had the same condition.

    I imagine the same way having 4 Flashes will work? Wallace was due an overhaul anyhow since a lot of his character premise, at one point intentionally, is a direct rip off of Wally.

    Hey Guys,

    I need some advice, I am a comic newb* & have a chance to purchase a "Flash #123" CGC Graded 8.0 - for ($3,200)
    Yes, I know it is overpriced by maybe ($600) but I just not sure if & when I may ever get a chance to make a purchase like this again ?

    Do any of you think I should dive on it & say "screw it" ? - Buy it in hopes that it continues to gain worth ? - Or just wait & hope I get the opportunity for an 8.0 Flash #123 later down the road ? . . . .

    I mean it’s your money, but I would never pay that much for a comic.

    There is discussion in superman forum that 5G thing might not be happening after didio gone. What are they going to do with him now? Hopefully, who ever takes over keep wally around.

    The story seems to have hit today (read the LA Times post) but for how long previously did the parties now what was going to happen? If this came as a total surprise to Didio, then possible 5G may not happen. Then again the new person may go forward as they'd have nothing else planned.

    The reason why I had considered the purchase was because I had hoped it would appreciate in value.
