Flash...which one appears...?

#1 Posted by G-Man (30625 posts) - - Show Bio

Grrr...okay there's been some debate about heroes and alter egos. I've decided that the Flash is too much of a revolving door. First it's Jay, then Barry, then Wally, then that Russian female, then Wally, then Jesse? (can't remember if she actually "became" Flash, then Bart, then Wally (again). I've decided we have to go the way of the Green Lanterns and just call them by name. I've noticed that Wally already has a big page and the Flash page is a basic rundown of everyone. I've changed "Impulse" to Bart Allen. I'm not going to worry too much about if "Kid Flash" is listed in Teen Titans or whatever. There's bigger things to worry about. I have done some work on The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive and added Bart to all issues. I liked it when heroes went by one name, there was only ONE character allowed to go by that name, and they didn't change their identities all the time.

Jesse Quick never actually became the Flash...

Wally only used it as a 'threat' to get Bart to start thinking before he acted.

She wore the costume for 2 issues though... does that count?

I'd hate to smell that costume with everyone that's worn it. And before anyone asks, we're not doing this with Robin. Dick is "Nightwing," Jason Todd is "Jason Todd," and Tim Drake is "Robin." Deal with it.

These things are such a pain in the ass.

So does that mean you're going to merge Tim Drake into Robin?

I don't think the page is really necessary. I probably won't touch it. At the rate DC is going, he'll probably need his own page someday when he gets replaced. I just think Tim's focus should be on "Robin." Despite the fact that we all know him as probably the best Robin, the general public wouldn't know the name.

Notice that this problem seems to be a DC thing. Maybe that's why I like Marvel better.

I like DC better because they let their heroes die. Even the main ones. The heroes don't seem to even age much in Marvel. I just assume everyone knows all the different names for the different heroes.
