    Default Wally's Flash costume: more or less similar to Barry's Flash costume?

    If it were up to you, would you prefer for Wally West's Flash costume to look more similar (e.g. identical or so similar that it would be easy to mistake one for the other at a quick glance) or more different (e.g. completely distinct from Barry's and unmistakably unique) from the Flash costume that Barry wears?

    I liked Wally's Rebirth costume the best with the silver lightning and flowing red hair.

    This right here.
    Read the current Flash run by Jeremy Adams! The first issue is #768. The best comic being published by DC these days. Hands down.

    Actually I think I'd want them to be similar, and I also agree with Drako on liking the current one. I say similar because the reason Wally is Flash in the first place is because Barry died back in COIE with Wally swearing to honor his friend and mentor Barry as the new Flash. So him looking similar but with changes he made for himself over the years works the best in my opinion.

    Wish there was a middle option of 'similar but with key differences'. I like how his costume is drawn now with the white lenses and nose being covered entirely.

    Why can't Wally's be exactly like Barry's except in a different color, like blue?

    (I'd suggest yellow, but . . . )

    I preferred the Rebirth outfit because I've always thought the Kid Flash costume was an even better design than the classic Flash suit.

    Same, I think it was his best costume so far.

    Yeah I like that one too. It definitively shows that he’s The Flash but it’s just different enough to be it’s own thing.

    But if I had to make a choice for this poll, I would not want his costume to look exactly like Barry’s.

    I hated Wally's Rebirth suit. I like what he's in now with the white eye's. Pretty much it's the same suit he wore during Waids run.

    My runs: Batman #230-, and Detective #420-

    Yeah exactly. Recognizably the Flash, but with easily identifiable differences.

    When you think about it, we always talk about how to tweak Wally's suit to differentiate him, but Barry would benefit from a more classic redesign. A more jagged belt, wings on the boots, and a brighter red.

    Well, Wally needs to look the part. Flash iconography stems from Barry's costume, so that's that.

    However, it's really easy to pin down what makes a Flash costume look like "The Flash" as opposed to "generic speedster hero", so some changes here and there could still be welcome.
    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!
