In five (likely non-canon) years, Wally West gets super-speed. Here's how:Read more... )
This reminds me, what if Wally's origin turned out to be exactly the same as Barry's? Would a plot point like that still be plausible in today's analytic comic-reading society?

"This is kind of the opposite of what I did with FANTASTIC FOUR, what I’m doing with AVENGERS. A lot of FANTASTIC FOUR was going back and looking at old runs and seeing what worked and what didn’t work, and taking the good stuff out and reintroducing it. The goal, though, was to make the franchise really relevant again. This isn’t the same thing. The Avengers are more relevant than they’ve ever been at any point in the history of the franchise. It’s stronger now than it has ever been. Going back and looking at a bunch of old stuff, regardless of how fond I am of it—and there’s certainly stuff that I really really like—I think it’s the wrong move to try and revisit old territory. I think that would be a mistake, and so I’ve intentionally gone the other way." - Jonathan Hickman

Hi folks!

Comic books in the 1990s are stereotyped as being about overmuscled men with big guns and gritted teeth engaged in mindless violence. I am totally playing to that stereotype with today's offering, but with some characters you might not have seen in a while.

Epic Comics was Marvel's "creator-owned" subdivision that printed more "mature" titles, and ones that didn't fit into the Marvel Universe, so the creators could re-use the characters elsewhere. The "Heavy Hitters" line tended towards macho violence. As a cross-promotion, they did a handful of team-up specials.

I've selected fifteen of the forty-eight pages for your entertainment.

This comic book does not pass the Bechdel Test )
