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?

And by BAD, I don't mean "Evil", "Feared" or "Dreaded", I just mean.... not that good. (I'm reminded of a line in a Transformers "Who's Who" thing, when describing Beast Wars Waspinator; "Waspinator is certainly capable of great evil, he's just not terribly GOOD at it")

Now it's true that some comic villains are magnificent constructions, with impresssive powers, finely crafted personalities and motivations that allow for a rich variety of plots. But let's be honest here, not every villain is that fortunate. They may all have grains of genius in their creation, and no villain is without the possibility of being redeemed (or the exact opposite, if you see what I mean) by the right writer. Consider The Shade, a rather generic shadowcaster before James Robinson got his hands on him. And it is of such lower rate villains we are dealing with here.

A certain favourite character is making their New 52 introduction in Flash Annual #3 )
