They had a good thing with Wally west then they bring back Barry Allen and they kinda stop using Wally and then they make Barry the source of the speed force now in the new 52 Barry is the flash and Wally is nowhere. So what is so great about this guy that they need to make him the flash of flashes especially when lots of people prefer Wally? Not hating just asking
To make it more simple. Wally west will get back sooner or later it is a question of time. DC just want to take it nice, easy and slow so new readers get a costume to The New 52 and make it more advance as the series progress. They have just rebooted the entire universe so the expect to see all characters by issue one.
@Mucklefluga: that explains why he's nowhere in the new 52 . But after Barry came back from the dead Wally pretty much got kicked to the curve, and again I bring up Barry being the source of the speed force . You have to admit that's a move to try and make him look like the best
well Barry was always considered the greatest Flash so i guess they just wanted to do the same thing they did with Hal seeing as he is usually considered THE GL of Earth, and to have 1 flash to make simple for new readers like someone stated earlier
as for why Wally completely disappeared i have no idea, maybe they didnt know what to do with him since Bart is Kid Flash?
DC needed 1 standard Flash and Barry was chosen. I think the reason Barry was chosen is bec the current New 52 reboots tended to favor the silver age versions and I do agree the silver age versions are the most iconic and this includes Katar Hol who is also back. There are some exceptions since Ryan Choi is now the Atom and the exceptions tended to be the b list or the c list properties.
