Wally West should be brought back

And this new volume of the Flash needn't be bought. I read this thread on Comic Book Resources, and while all the participants have some interesting things to say, the conclusion I've come to is that, simply put, Bart Allen is simply not cut out to be the main Scarlet Speedster. One of the reasons is because his origin, in the far-flung future, makes it hard to cast him as a flagship character. Another is the forced way that Wally was pushed out. One of the reasons, no doubt, why the editors realized they would have to put him in limbo, as they apparently did (that seems to be the case with various other characters as well).

And to comment on a comment:
When the Villians became more prominent than Wally under Geoff Johns, I left the Flash.
I gotta admit, the poster who wrote that has something to it. Of course, when I left the Flash, it was because of the ambush-like tampering Johns did with at least two of the villains in the series.

I think this also can serve as a good reason why not to hire television writers to script comic books. When I learned that one of the crooks featured in this volume calls Bart a b****, I knew that there was some kind of TV-style overkill going on here.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
