Rebirth?!?!?

#1 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

Frenzied old school DC fans may be placated by the return of another old school character, so soon after Hal Jordan's triumphant return...

What I hear is... Geoff Johns, Ethan Van Sciver, “Barry Allen: Rebirth."

CBR website have a few details, but nothing concrete so far... it looks like Johns and Sciver have been picked up for a new series from DC, though no details as to what it is so far...

I'll be the first to say it however, I'll believe it, when I'm holding a copy of it in my hands...

saying that though, i can't think of anyone I'd rather see write Barry Allen's return than Geoff Johns...

no we need a real flash and Barry is one of those real flashes.

Just like in my opinion Ted was the real Blue Beetle.

YAY, i hope they do bring Barry back...so much!

He is my Favorite Flash as you all know, so when will this be out?

#27 Posted by Samhain (13 posts) - - Show Bio

Barry is THE Flash (ok, aside from Jay).

We need him back.

They never said if he is coming back for good. They just brought back Wally, so bringing Barry back so quickly would be a bit of a rush."

Hah i know, but i guess im just a bit over excited :P

Wally is boss, but i'd prefer to see Barry back in action instead.

i agree wholeheartedly. Wally is a great character, don't get me wrong, i just think it's time to bring back Barry.

while I disagree about the Jason Todd part I agree that Barry should stay dead especially since this reeks of silver age fanboys  f@ping.

They better not be killing Wally, or I will be so disappointed.

#39 Posted by Nighthunter (28582 posts) - - Show Bio

they aren't, only announcement I heard regarding Wally in Flash rebirth are that he'll be in it (duh) and he'll get a costume redesign by Ethan Van Shiever

They better don't steal his thunder like they did to Kyle though

Wally Is having major problems with his powers in his recent issues. i think wally will retire in his spot and barry will take it. hate to say it, but i can see it happening

Right.  You can tell the difference because 52 was interesting.  Countdown was not.

Wish the kid had never died.  It's created all sorts of problems in that book and Teen Titans not to mention Bart was just a good character.

Honestly, he should stay dead. I didn't want Hal back, but hes a memeber of an Intergalactic Corps all weilding the same weapon, and having multiple GL's not only works it enhances the Mythos. There can only be 1 Fastest Man Alive. I never read a Barry Allen comic in my life, and i have no desire too. Wally has been the Flash my entire life, and this is the one Legacy in DC comics that actually works like a Legacy is supposed to..i'm horribly dissapointed they didn't make Bart work, and it's even worse since they've made it clear he wasn't supposed to be Flash long anyway that they made him a sacrificial Lamb. I have faith in Geoff, i really do...but I have no intrest in a Flash Corps...or in being made to beleive Barry should take up the mantle in Wally's place..Juswt have no intrest in it, i'll wait for the trade, though i'm probably done with Flash for a while. (All granted..that's how i felt about Hal replacing Kyle (Who is THE Green Lantern as far as i'm concerned) an Geoff did a great job...so maybe..just maybe..)

It's my hope that Wally or Barry retires.  Jay has his place.  Kid Flash had his place.  But I agree, we don't need two guys in red pajamas running around.
