there was a lot of Hell Yeah in this issue. It was only let down by the 'it all began with you barry' crap. Here, I thought it all began with Jay Garrick

I thought Max wasn't dead but trapped in the speed force and hand someone else riding shotgun in his mind?

Sort of, yes. He was possessed by 'The Rival' and his spirit thrown into the speed force while said villain stole his body. The Rival has not been seen since then. Max was revealed to be in the speed force during Infinite Crisis and then was freed in the latest Flash: Rebirth (though he nearly died first).

Mostly, his story and arc suffer from total neglect. A Flash writer habit, regrettably.

Ah, ok I was mostly on target then.

Does this mean that Max is... Deadman!Flash basically now? A disembodied super fast spirit (how fast is a ghost, anyway? Same as a European swallow?)

Maybe without his soul, Max Mercury's body lost contact with the Speed Force and just withered away, killing the Rival along with it. And now when he returned from the Speed Force, his spirit simply materialized a new body out of the ambient energy surrounding him.

I'd like my No-Prize now.
