This spring, Barry Allen will be going up against one of Central City’s most notorious villains. And even though Reverse-Flash’s first appearance in DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 was seen in THE FLASH #17, it’ll be issue #20 of the series that launches an all-new and monumental story arc that will find him really solidifying his place in The Flash’s gallery of rogues.
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read THE FLASH #18 and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!)
“Gorilla Warfare” is over, and Barry Allen (a.k.a. The Flash) has defeated Grodd and his overwhelming gorilla army. But will the Scarlett Speedster be able to rebuild the Gem Cities by himself? Or will he need a little extra help?
This morning, COMIC BOOK RESOURCES announced that THE FLASH #17 would introduce one of the Scarlet Speedster’s greatest foes into DC COMICS-THE NEW 52: Reverse-Flash!
“This Reverse-Flash is going to be a complete re-imagining of him in the same way that we kind of tinkered with what the Speed Force is,” series co-writer and artist Francis Manapul told COMIC BOOK RESOURCES. “We're going to be explaining what the opposite side of that is. He's the Yin to [Barry's] Yang.”
