I'm gonna go ahead and disagree with you for the very simple reason, there is no need to give this Wally West a chance, because he's not Wally West.

Race change for diversity sake is one thing (And not something I endorse), but the fact of the matter is, that the character presented to us in these few issues is very simply not Wally West. Sure you can argue that the fact he was White and Ginger was not part of his definitive make-up as a Character, but he's not some law breaking, cliched disrespectful punk as has been presented. Wally West was a Middle Class-Mid West kinda guy, a paragon, and he loved being the Flash and everything it stood for. He was light hearted, and sure impatient at times, but undoubtedly selfless.

This 'Wally' doesn't seem like any of those things, and so whilst I'll read on, just to see home much more they're gonna mutilate him, I still don't see the point of him having to be 'Wally West'.

Hickman. Might as well give him a shot, he's done great things with the Fantastic Four and with the Avengers.

Vin Diesel as Black Bolt, from just the voice of a character to a character with no voice. I appreciate the irony

He could just as easily be Gorgon or Karnak. The baldness is in like with the latter after all.

Stoked for this though :D

Well my top 5 would be

Kitty
Emma
Rachel
Betsy
Jean

One might argue I have a penchant for Telepaths. I also awarded votes to Rogue and Storm because whilst they're not my favourite characters I can't deny they're incredible well designed and explored.

@darkraiden: He or his thoughts can't even come close to Wally

But they can. MMH has TP'd Wally as has Fernus and Gorilla Grodd. And he's hit faster people.

'Faster'

Lol, nope.

Miss Martian.

I'm not saying it's gonna be easy, but I've got little doubt that the Titans would take this in the end.

None of them can do anything to Thanos though.

Oh that is utter shite and you know it. :P

Pray do tell how Supergirl who has given Superman a run for his money can do 'nothing' to Thanos? Or Kyle Rayner, y'know, arguably the most powerful Green Lantern who has in the past managed to contain the likes of Ultraman, Superwoman, Johnny Quick and the like. Moreover, I'm not gonna lowball Thanos cause I'm quite aware of just how powerful he is, but is he even quick enough to lay a finger on Bart or Wally?
