Hey all,
 
I recently came across a DC Nation article from CBR that said "On to the Flash, by show of applause Wally West was by far the preferred speedster, outpacing current Flash Barry Allen." Do you agree with this statement that Wally is the prferred speedster or do you prefer a different speedster (not just wally)? Anyway please let me know. I would like to hear your input. I personally like Barry Allen and Wally West. Although i am more familiar from Wally mainly because of the Justice League Unlimited series, but i recently start enjoying the current Flash series where Barry Allen is the Flash in Central City. If i had to pick i would say Barry but i wish that they would give him more screen time. Anyway please let me know if you agree with this statement. Thanks in advance.

I like 'em all.  I started off with Barry Allen, but loved it when Wally dropped the Kid and picked up the red uniform.  I didn't care for Bart much, until they made him a little more serious.  I always liked Jay, because he was that grandfatherly type, and I liked Johnny & Jesse Quick, because of that speed formula.  When Mark Waid brought back Max Mercury as the "zen master of speed" though, Max really became my favorite.

Barry, seeing as i have never read any Flash related title up untill a few months ago.

Hey! Does paper breathe?
#23 Posted by lorex (945 posts) - - Show Bio

Wally is the best Flash and Speedster in the DCU. Barry Allen was brought back to appease a segment of fans who want comics to be like they were 20 years ago.

Technically no comic book character has ever drawn breath. Unless it was a real individual with a comic book biography. Like Lady Gaga or Jutisn Bieber.
 
Pell Mell's my favourite speedster.
What?
He appeared in an old Artemis mini years ago.

im not much of a DC person and I used to be into the Legion pretty bad back in the late 90's when there was like a million members of the team

I prefer Barry. I grew up with the live action Flash show and he was not  a stereotypical speedster. He was actually slow and methodical and was looked up to by other Justice Leaguers.

#45 Posted by CrimsonAvenger (1162 posts) - - Show Bio
 Barry Allen or Jay Garrick

@magicman620:
I feel the same way as you about Barry Allen vs Wally West. 
 
They are both great characters with similar elements (not counting the costume or hero name) but stand out as their own unique individual.

Bart Allen
