    And both sported super-cool hand jewelry: Jimmy had Superman's device and Wally had a Flash ring with a secret compartment.
    Parental care is way exhausting. Gained insight into what my parents went through when I was a baby. Not fun, but what ya gonna do? (Read comics, obviously.)

    Wally was essentially just a mashup of Dick and Jimmy when he was first introduced. Cop everything you can about the world's two biggest sidekicks.

    Default DCU Darkness and the Dark Matter Universe

    I have *big, pompous voice* A. Question.

    (For the reason that I really dislike dark tragedy and horror I've not been keeping any kind of tabs on what is happening outside of Fast Forward since shortly after they removed 'Rebirth' from the covers of the DCU books. I only know what's been going on based on things heard/seen by sheer accident while looking for Wally info.)

    Is the dark matter universe the foundation for the awful things that have been pervading all or nearly all the DC books since Rebirth? Batman Who Laughs, Year of the Villain and so forth? Or is it a separate issue from all the horror/dark junk going on of late?

    I'm really hoping it is the latter.

    It has been the source or otherwise related to it. Batman Who Laughs comes from the Dark Multiverse. The Dark Multiverse is connected to Snyder's new multiversal origin in Perpetua, the evil entity who created everything, and she started Year of the Villain. It'd be a case by case basis for me to say what is and is not derivative of the dark multiverse. For instance, the edgifying of Donna and Billy Batson is by BWL and thus the Dark Multiverse, but Wally becoming a depressed mass killing time travel abusing monster has not really been connected to the Dark Multiverse itself. Even though his ensuing adventures take place there.

    Ah, the good old days with Kyle and Wally giving each other shit in JLA watchtower while playing a ring construct Rockem Sockem robots. Those were the days!

    Yeesh.

    I'm worried that someone is going to connect Wally's 'drain plug' planet fiasco with the awfulness going on with the Darkness invading everything.... another thing to blame Wally for.

    ....

    Fan Art: nice one of Kyle and Wally. I liked that friendship on par with Nightwing and Wally. Miss seeing Kyle. I could relate to him being an artist more than to the other Lanterns, plus his constructs were a blast. He wasn't even in the two-pagers in Doomsday Clock. Neither were. *sigh*

    Van Sciver was not happy drawing that. He was really focused on making Wally look "not as cool as Barry" (his words, not mine), his designs were all rejected and this one was basically done by comitee. I don't like this costume very much (mainly because of the story behind it), but I think it looked really good under Ivan Reis pencil. And it's not bad here either.
    ConnEr Kent flies. ConnOr Hawke has a bow. Batman's kid is named DamiAn.

    To do spoiler tags, use [ spoil ] at the start of the sentence and [ /spoil ] at the end, without the spaces. You're welcome!

    They're decade themed. So Jay appears on the 1940s one and one of Wally's. Barry is obviously on the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s (showing a scene from the Crisis just before he died), and 2010s ones, and Wally's are the 90s and 2000s ones, as you'd expect.
