What's the difference between Barry Allen and Wally West's costumes?

#2 Posted by cyberninja (10413 posts) - - Show Bio

Before the new 52 
 
Wally West= Belt thingy is in V shape, sort of looks like TWO bolt of lightning coming from the hips forming a V shape
Barry Allen= belt thingy that is  not in a V shape , sort of looks like ONE bolt of lightning going around his waist  
 
After the new 52 
 
Wally West=  Mask covers his eyes, you can't see his eyes, it's all white 
Barry Allen= Mask doesn't cover his eyes, you can see his eyes.

Barry's costume is basically Wally's now because they got rid of Wally in the reboot.

How does the V-lightning belt have anything to do with his eyes?

Oh man, somebody's feeling smart. What is your reason for not mentioning the belt?

I was stating in my first post that they also gave Barry the V-belt. I didn't say anything about his eyes, and I don't see why you're making such a big deal about them.

Haha, it's fine, I just wanted to know why you were so focused on his eyes! :P

But it's all good, there's no place for spite on a comic book forum. Nice BB avatar BTW.

Barry's the one in the lead, next to Bart, Wally's the one behind him with the darker red

Wally's suit was also darker and had black detail to the symbol on his chest to make it look recessed.

And Wally's mask covers his nose for some reason.

"After New 52"

Can someone tell me where they have seen Wally West in the New52??!?!

The Flash in 'The Flash' series and from 'Justice League' and '' is Barry Allen, and the Kid Flash from 'Teen Titans' and 'DC Universe Presents #12' is Bart Allen. I have no idea where you guys are getting your post-Flashpoint information from, but as far as i know he has yet to make an appearance in main continuity since September of 2011. I don't see how you people can possibly compare Barry and Wally's New52 costume when Wally doesn't even exist yet in the New52!

As for pre-Flashpoint, you all seemed to be spot on. Their main difference is their belts- with Wally's forming a 'V' shape with two lightning bolts, and Barry's forming a single line (unbroken) running across his waist. When standing side-by-side Wally does appear to be darker as well, as seen in the photo above from The Flash: Rebirth #5. Aside from that Wally's eyes are covered, whereas Barry's are exposed. These parts of Barry's costume have carried over into the New52.

Also, in the Young Justice series (both the TV series and the resulting comic book) this is reverse- Wally has exposed eyes and Barry has them covered (but that is not main continuity, or part of the New52).
