Okay, okay, okay… okay. Excuse me as I have a major geekgasm.

Barry Allen, the Flash, died in 1985 during Crisis on Infinite Earths. He saved the entire frickin’ universe by running so fast that he transcended time and concentrating the entire speed force into a single bolt of lightning… which ended up being the same lightning bolt that connected him to the speed force in the first place. Very La Jetée, right? His death was meant to signify the end of Silver Age and the dawn of modern, darker stories in comics. He’s one of the few comic book characters that died and stayed dead.

Until last year, when he popped up during Final Crisis and ended up playing a huge role in the story. It was awesome. So, he’s like alive again. And last month DC Comics launched a new series: Flash Rebirth. The first issue wondered “Why did Barry Allen come back? What is his purpose here? What does this signify?”

The last panel of the second issue answered that question. And, spoiler alert: it is awesome. I got seriously giddy. You can tell because I ran to my laptop and wrote this post. I didn’t even put pants on first.

Carry on.

The Black Flash. Consider this “Flash Week” or something, because that’s all I’m going to b e talking about. I believe the idea behind the Black Flash is that speedsters are basically capable of moving so fast they cannot die. They have such a sublime control over space and time that they can escape the traditional rules governing life and death, so the universe manifested the Black Flash to balance this. Basically. the Black Flash will appear and negate the character’s existence, assimilating them into the Speed Force.

I remember reading The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive and seeing the Black Flash pop up in a panel background. It got a big “OH SHIT” out of me. The book ended shortly thereafter for, uh, obvious reasons.
