    "Cocky" Barry Allen would be mischaracterized Barry Allen.

    That may only be true in terms of OG Barry.

    I dunno in SA comics he could seem pretty over arrogant at times. Then the villain would do some wacky thing to catch him off guard.

    He wasn't really a hotshot/showoff but he was confident enough that some could consider him cocky whenever he had the spandex on. Less so in his civilian life, though. That's just the typical Clark Kent impression that was typical of the era.

    All the heroes (of a certain age) that were created in the 1950s and 1960s were made of sterner stuff. They had all probably been in the war, they'd lived through hard times, travelled the world. They did not look at life with rose-coloured glasses. They were fighting the good fight against the forces of evil. This was the natural assumption because the men and women creating these comics had lived through that themselves, many of them had been in the armed forces, done their bit for Uncle Sam (or Mother England). And the children reading those comics, we all had family (mothers, fathers, uncles, aunts) that had been in that fight. These were heroes. If OG Barry Allen is "boring" it's a boring quality that comes out of tough experiences, where a man learned not to wear his emotions on his sleeve. I prefer to say stoic.

    My favorite Flash is Barry because (1) he's a great character and (2) the most iconic villains come from his run.

    Mark Waid played with this idea in THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD: FLASH AND GREEN LANTERN, though I think that story was set before Iris's death.

    Don't remind them or Didio will mandate a panel where spoilers:
    a rogue lightning bolt is revealed to have killed him too.
    end of spoilers

    Favorite Flash: it's tough to pick between Jay and Wally, but I'm going to go with Jay Garrick. I like his fun-loving, pranksterish Golden Age persona, and I love the "cool old man" persona from the 90s-2000 JSA. It's rare that you get to see one of these DC characters live a long life and change greatly over time, and that's another appeal of the character.
    "Why do the trunks not "hold up with the times"? What exactly is the problem with them? And don't tell me "nobody wears them" because nobody dresses in a blue body suit and red cape and boots either.

    It's a superhero costume. It's the original superhero costume. It's not real clothing, it's not bound to the ever-changing fashion trends of real life. It's nothing like real life clothing. How exactly can it become outdated?"

    It was also a bit more toned down on Barry's part.
