The Flash: We Need to Talk About Grodd

Gorilla Grodd has been the monkey on Barry Allen’s back for three seasons now and in tonight’s episode, “Attack on Central City,” he really ups the ante to a whole new level. It’s, frankly, just really impressive that he was able to muster up an army and get them all the way over to Earth-1 from Earth-2, keep them organized and send them all against Team Flash.

The Flash: Greetings from Gorilla City

Gorilla Grodd has not only been a longstanding staple of the Flash’s comic book mythology—he first appeared in THE FLASH #106 in May 1959—but is also an important staple of The Flash television show, having appeared once a year since the first season. In tonight’s episode, “Attack on Gorilla City,” we finally get to see where Grodd went at the end of last season—Gorilla City on Earth-2!

The Flash: Phasing and Other Speed Force Powers

In tonight’s episode of The Flash we get a lot more Kid Flash goodness! If you’ve been following these series of editorials, you know that I absolutely love Wally West, so the events of “Untouchable” have definitely given me a lot to write about. He’s been training with Barry this season and improving at a much quicker rate than his predecessor, but has been tripping up on a classic Flash trick—phasing.

The Flash: Let's Talk About Gypsy

This season on The Flash, we are getting a lot of great development of characters that are not Barry Allen. It has been a ton of fun seeing characters like Caitlin Snow (and her alter-ego Killer Frost), come into their own. In tonight’s episode, “Dead or Alive,” there was a heavy focus on Cisco finally coming to an equilibrium with his Vibe powers and stepping up to protect HR from being taken back to Earth-19 by a bounty hunter named…Gypsy!

Yes, she does wear a costume inspired by the traditional gypsy dress that you are imagining in your mind right now.

The Flash: Who Wouldn’t Want to Visit the Flash Museum?

This week, The Flash finally returned to our television screens in an episode with, possibly, their most awesome title to date—“Borrowing Problems From the Future.” It’s a clever nod back at the recent trend of Barry Allen messing around with the timeline and having to deal with the ramifications, although does not tip its hat to the awesome HR Wells subplot that runs around tonight’s episode like a crazy person. It is an absolute dream to watch Tom Cavanagh bring to life the most eclectic Multiverse version of Harrison Wells that we have seen so far.

Godspeed to Barry and the Kid Flashes

DC’s Rebirth has launched some amazing new chapters in the lives of classic super heroes, and Barry Allen has got a really, really special story!

Breaking News: The Flash Musical Episode Gets an Airdate

Are you reading for some super-powered singing?

As fans know, this spring The Flash and Supergirl will meet up once again to stop a powerful threat…and sing a few jaunty tunes. It’ll all take place in a special musical episode that will feature the warbling Music Meister as the baddie. Other than the villain, however, much of the info on the episode has been kept under wraps. Until now, that is.

Ten Moments that Mattered in 2016

To make your mark on the future, it helps to take stock of where you’ve been. 2017 promises to be an exciting year for DC and its fans, but before we celebrate the new year, we thought we’d look back on 2016 and consider some of the places we’ve been. DC made some bold choices in the worlds of comics, film and TV, and many of them set our course for the months and years ahead. The past year was full of memorable moments, but some of these moments held real significance. Some of them really mattered. So as we do every year at this time, we thought we’d discuss a few of them.
