Does anyone like his new costume?

#1 Posted by DEGRAAF (7810 posts) - - Show Bio

there are aspects of it i like but for the most part i think its a failure. i like the darker color and am iffy about the new chest symbol, i really dislike the new cowl. all in all i was expecting something more modern looking but this looks like they tore it off a classic super hero. The original flash would be better suited for it i think.

the only thing I don't like is the the way the cowl goes straight across under the nose....everything else is fine...I was hoping for Jesse Quick to get an updated costume and I really like Iris as Impulse

iris becoming impulse doesnt seem like new news to me, havent they had pics of her in the costume for a while? i want to know how she went from dead to being able to run fast (wasnt her power the ability to walk thru things?) So what is going to become of her brother?

They were sharing their connection to the speed force because they were born at the same time and it was killing them....so Iris took the speed force away from her brother and now has the complete package so now she can run fast....she didn't really die...I think the transfer knocked her out and thats when Jesse Quick came in and revived her....her brother will probably be just a normal kid now

Partially agreed. I hope she would return to this costume:

o see i thought she was giving her powers up for him to survive is how i understood it and jessie quick came in and gave iris some of hers or something. i thought her brother was gonna become more powerful, i cant see them making her selfish and taking all of it to save her brother, but rather give it all up to save him and give her life for him

Loks just as good as any other I frankly didn't even notice that..

 I love it and it is cool! It will eventually grew on all of you like Damien did. 
@danhimself:
What I like most about it is that it is a perfect mix between her father's an mother's costume.

Could be worse, it still says Flash. They could have made it blue....

#16 Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy (7118 posts) - - Show Bio

I dig it. But i prefer the original. But w/e.

Too many Flashes. Too Green Lanterns. 
 
Honestly, Wonder Woman seems like the super-family thats the least crowded. Her, Donna, Cassie, maybe Artemis. 
 
Too much clutter. No me gusta.

Walley's new costume? I LOVE IT!!!   

But I'm not feeling Liberty Belle's new Jessie Quick duds.
 

#20 Posted by Serpent (209 posts) - - Show Bio

The anatomy is bugging me.
 
I also would prefer Jesse Quick to return to her awesome costume.

#21 Posted by Zoom (14668 posts) - - Show Bio

Love the lightning symbol.  I'm fine with the color but I wish the mask style looked more like Barry's.
#22 Posted by TheDrifter (26555 posts) - - Show Bio

Needs to be brighter imo.

#23 Posted by AtPhantom (14454 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm cool with it. Not digging Liberty Belle's costume though.

#24 Posted by JLAsuperdude (174 posts) - - Show Bio

Man I wish Johnny Quick didn't die everyone is there except him ever since I got the whole All-star Squadron series I've loved him but I think Wall's costume is really cool except for the cowl.

If Iris is Impulse, what happened to Jai? I thought Iris died though...

#26 Posted by Rune (302 posts) - - Show Bio

I dont think is much of a change

I like it. It looks like the one from the old live action TV show.
 
BTW the show was awesome.

#29 Posted by HaHaManHV (234 posts) - - Show Bio
@Watch Dog: No. I'm sorry and not trying to be a jerk but that show was terrible. I have it, I have seen it. I love the Flash more than everybody I know and I still think that show sucked. 
 
Also, the costume change is so slight, and with different artists and colorists it won't even be that noticeable. See Wally's appearance in Blackest Night #5. It looked pretty much the same. I love this money shot of everybody in new(or old) duds, I just wish that they had Jai there to address that whole issue of what will become of him.

@HaHaManHV: Really you thought it sucked?  I liked it it was great for it's time and it was nice to see some thing that was not Super Man or Bat Man.
#31 Posted by DEGRAAF (7810 posts) - - Show Bio

Yea, i want more information on Jai's status
#32 Posted by DEGRAAF (7810 posts) - - Show Bio

how about his new NEW Costume! 

 
#33 Posted by HaHaManHV (234 posts) - - Show Bio
@Watch Dog: Yes, because here is the thing, the show had almost nothing to do with any characters from the comics. I am all for modernizing stuff like with Smallville, fine, but with the Flash, where you have the guy running around in tights, he should have more than one villain in costume (Trickster) and the Captain Cold was an abomination. I love the show in theory, I mean, Flash is great and I think he has a lot more to give for a television series and I understand getting sick of Batman and Superman, but I still need quality (I haven't seen it in a while to be fair, and maybe if I watch it again it will be better, but I don't think so).

@HaHaManHV: Well to each there own I see your points and I had similar complaints back in the day but It wasn't that bad.
BTW if you did not like it then you probably will not like it now

@DEGRAAF: Could anyone tell me the names of everyone in that picture? I know most of them, Barry Allen, Wally west, Jay Garrick, Jesse Quick, and is that Bart Allen? But i'm not sure about the rest.

From left to right... 
Jesse Quick, Max Mercury, Kid Flash II (Bart), Flash II (Barry), Flash III (Wally), Impulse III (Iris "Irey" West), Flash I (Jay) 
 
  • Jesse Quick is the daughter of two golden age heroes, Johnny Quick and Liberty Belle and shares their powers (speed from dad; flight and strength from mom) and has gone back and forth between the superhero identities of Liberty Belle II and Jesse Quick
  • Max Mercury is a time traveling speedster from the past, the first good guy to be consciously aware of the Speed Force and induct the Flash Family in its ways
  • Irey West is the daughter of Wally West and Linda Park and twins with Jai West... the two had different manifestations of Speed Force powers until Wally cured them... Geoff Johns then decided to "cure" them again  resulting in Irey getting all the powers and Jai becoming depowered... Irey decided to step in the the mantel of her "cousin" Bart... because... they were so close and stuff... I guess... [I apologize for all the editorializing but this particular move really bugs me]
 
 All of their more detailed bios can be read on Comic Vine.

@Mainline: Thank you so much, I wasn't expecting something so detailed but that really helped, so thank you for that. I really like the flash family, I didn't even know about Impulse III, that's really cool, thanks again

@intothetempest:
yea but i was hoping Jai would be the one that ended up with the powers. I think Iris will be a good super hero but i always thought it was kinda selfish of her. They knew that they couldnt both hold on to their powers and one would have to give them up or they would die or something like that and instead of doing the selfless thing and giving her powers up to ensure her brothers safety and possibly losing her life she took all of his powers and left him unconcious (for the time being)

I liked some of his other costumes better but this one is alright, hopefully the interior artwork for it is better though.
