It happened with Jason Todd, and now it's happened again. Scores of fans, bitching and compaining about how "Bart Allen isn't Wally". "Bart Allen isn't the Flash, he's a substitute."
Well, please, allow me to remind you of a few things:
1:Bart read an entire library in less than a day, and remembered it all,making him the only Flash with that ability. Do any of the other Flashes have unique abilities?
2: Bart was the first Flash to harness the ENTIRE speedforce, an achievement the other Speedsters thought him worthy to have.
3: Bart died without his powers, fighting his entire rouges gallery, saving an entire coast.
and 4: Bart was still a kid, just trapped in a mans body.
Bart was the best right off the bat, and he would have far surpased the rest if DC didn't have to worry about people throwing a fit because it wasn't Wally or Barry. Well, you have Wally back now. I hope you have fun with your average, same-old Flash.
My Flash died valiantly, saving lives.
