The Flash #231
Mark Waid, Daniel Acuna
**** 1/2 (out of five)
The Flash is back and wow… just wow.
Just to bring those out of the loop up to speed, Wally West, A.K.A. The Flash, disappeared along with his wife and twin babies during the events of 2006’s Infinite Crisis. With Wally gone, Bart Allen, the hero formerly known as Kid Flash, took up the mantle and donned the red suit to battle crime.
Unfortunately, things didn’t go very well for Bart and he died in a battle with the Flash’s longtime enemies, The Rogues.
At just the same moment, the Legion Of Super-Heroes time-travelled to our time from the 30th century and used their science to bring Wally and his family — including two now-tween-aged twins — home.
As The Flash’s monthly adventures pick up from where they left off, Wally is back in his beloved Keystone City fighting to protect its citizens, alongside two powerful new heroes — whom he can send to their room if they misbehave!
Mark Waid, one of the two best Flash writers of all time, makes a triumphant return to the series, along with talented newcomer Daniel Acuna (Green Lantern) in one of the landmark books of the year.
Fans of the DC Universe dare not miss this one.
