[personal profile] glprime posting in [community profile] scans_daily

Following on from my last post, there was a request to show Bart's return to the 30h century with his mother and what happened to settle things where she let him go back to 20th century Manchester, AL.

Let's catch up...

So Bart and Mom are in the future, but apparently they can't just walk into the antiques store and pick up a Sport's Almanac for wacky temporal hijinks to ensue.

Yes, President Thawne. The Allen/Thawne enmity was a major plot-point of Waid's Flash run and has been carried over into Impulse as well.

That's future-future Legion member XS Thawne's holding. Excedrin may be needed to understand all this timey-wimey plot nonsense.

Just like in our last post, moms can do no wrongs, kids!

Bart arrives back in the 20th century, about to teeter into dangerous emo!Robin mode, but seeing the beautiful horizon he reminisces about "sunshine" and zips home to... an empty house. Yeah, I didn't have the next issue explaining where Max went to, but I don't really care.

MORE IMPORTANTLY! We finally get to know why Bart's hair is so crazy. It's a genetic defect inherited from his mother.

The "next" thing Meloni Thawne did was get knocked up by Captain Boomerang (it's the next thing in publishing time, but we haven't heard whether Bart or Owen was born first). And we really haven't heard about her since, so no idea about when she'll "see" Bart again.

7 full pages from Impulse #25 behind the cut.

She appeared in Impulse later, actually. I have scans from the old s_d from the issue where he looked for Max and other Bart stuff. If anyone wants, I can post 'em

It's been posted!

There's plenty of other old Impulse posts I can repost with no trouble as well, if you're interested.

Fatal 500 was attacking, but Bart took the time to run and give his Mom a hug and say "I love you."

"Defect"? Like hell.
Meloni Thawne has got it goin' on.

(also, wee baby Jenni is so cute.)

So that's why Meloni hasn't traveled back in time to be with Bart...

the whole Thawne thing, except for the name of Eobard Thawne was retconned in after Barry died, right? Wouldn't it be something if they had Barry just bury the supposed feud as how pathetic it was?

Yes, it was a retcon

But Bart's existence is what makes the feud so deliciously fun to read about!

Meloni's funsome, it was fun seeing where Impulse got his...Impulseness.

Alas she gets nearly no fan art so I had to get her drawn...

I'd still like to know if her encounter with Digger was before or after the whole thing with Don.

And damned if I don't see his mom and half-brother in Owen. (:

Right and if it was before Don then her whole "You're the last of the Thawnes thing to Bart is bogus" (though with Jenni alive, the last of the Allens thing makes no sense) and if it was after Don, that's just tacky (especially when you say "I'm an Allen now. Now and forever" and then get it on with someone you know from history to be one of Barry and Wally's worst enemies (who wasn't THAT charming). Honestly I think when Meltzer created Owen and then tied him to Meloni to make him Bart's half-brother they had no real back-story to Owen's conception thought out.

Wasn't it Geoff Johns though who made Owen Melani's son tho? I mean imo Meltzer just left the window open for Owen's true parentage, i don't think he ever had any1 in mind (really meloni doesn't even make sense as Owen's mom, she doesn't have powers. How can she pass on super speed?).

Have they really said it was Meloni? ...Because, I mean, Dawn is a girl and has super speed so maybe it could be Dawn (but still Digger WAS NOT a good choice for an/any affair).

I think Thawne was going to have Jenni grow up thinking/brainwashed into believing she's a Thawne since she was (It looks to me like she was) kidnapped and would know nothing better. But even still, neither of her parents were Thawnes.

The whole Owen just bursting with super-speed and the claim Meloni was his mom just come out of left field to me. I personally don't consider it cannon. Sorry, Meltzer.

...She looks like Battle Angel Alita with Bart's hair.
