The Flash Season 4 started out with a huge upgrade for Wally West. Earth One’s second most iconic speedster had to very suddenly go from the supporting legacy character of Kid Flash to the leader of the team. The “Team Kid Flash” jokes from both Wally and Cisco were some of my favorites, and I’m still hoping that one of them sports a team t-shirt at some point. Tonight in “Luck Be a Lady,” there was a pretty conspicuous absence of the second good guy speedster to grace this Earth.
The race toward Barry Allen and Iris West’s wedding is well underway on The Flash season four. It’s shaping up to be at least featured, if not an integral part of the four-way crossover this fall. In today’s episode, “Mixed Signals,” we are led to believe that maybe things aren’t running along as smoothly as possible. Yet, in spite of some rough patches throughout the episode the couple repeatedly refers to their West/Allen-ness as the “gold standard.”
If you read this site a lot you might already know this about me, but in the interest of full disclosure: I 100% absolutely adore everything about any possible variation of the Teen Titans and have been utterly enthralled with TITANS in its Rebirth incarnation.
Need proof? You can find my review of the first volume right here.
Slade Wilson is not a good man.
The world’s most effective assassin, he’s responsible for the deaths of hundreds, if not thousands of people. So what on earth is he doing assembling a new team of heroes?
Slade’s recent experience attempting to save his son Grant has left him a changed man, determined to leave his murderous ways behind. But is he for real? Can he be trusted?
If you missed my discussion of the first Titans Rebirth collection, then you missed me confessing that I love the Teen Titans more than almost anything in the comic book sphere. Just so you know that this is where my bias is coming from.
Alright guys, after four weeks of mayhem and betrayal, “The Lazarus Contract” is coming to a close. Though we may have avoided a complete and total cosmic crisis, the course of not one, not two, but three ongoing books has just been altered, for better or for worse.
Secrets are part of any super hero's life. Well, any super hero who tries to maintain a hidden identity. There comes a point in nearly every story with such a character when they have to decide whether they should entrust loved ones and tell them the truth. Some heroes have an easier time with this than others. In fact, you could argue that some go overboard with sharing their true ID. (I'm looking at you, Barry Allen on The CW's The Flash.) But that's not the case with Barry in the comics.
This week part three of “The Lazarus Contract” hit the pages of Deathstroke and things are finally starting to fall into place.
...Which may or may not be a good thing for just about everyone involved.
