Welcome to What's New in The New 52 – where you, the fans, get a sneak peek at the stuff that crosses our desks. This little feature is a way to keep you all in the loop about what's new, different and exciting in The New 52 – whether it's a character design, cover, splash page or panel.
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.
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.”
