Valentine's Day makes us think of love, or at least it should; and there is definitely a whole lot of love in some of our favorite comics. Yet, love sometimes goes hand in hand with heartache and for fans of the Barry Allen/Iris West relationship, their classic comic book love affair that was dissolved with the start of the "New 52," left many fans a little bit heartbroken. If you have been keeping up with Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato's FLASH series, then you may have noticed something of a love triangle forming.
Captain Cold is back – and he's more dangerous than ever! Seeking revenge on The Flash, he must convince the rest of the Rogues to reunite one last time. But what tore them apart before? And what did The Flash do to earn their deadly scorn? Find out here!
Everyone that reads the FLASH book knows that Barry is tied to his girlfriend, Patty Spivot, a fellow scientist working for the Central City Police Department. However, the latest issues do show that even the massive changes brought on by the 'New 52' could not keep Iris West from loving Barry Allen.
DC revealed the cover to a the series' 7th issue which, in the words of DC Editor Brian Cunningham is like an "apt metaphor for our hero," and we couldn't agree more. Here we have an image of Barry Allen struggling to stay afloat as he's sliding down what appears to be an icy canyon and behind him at the center is Captain Cold -- his latest big problem, and at either side of Cold are Iris and Patty. Yeah, we would say this is definitely turning out to be one very interesting love triangle.
So what is a "speedster" to do? What do you think? Who do you want to see Barry Allen with: the smart scientist or the sassy reporter?
