Right. I like Geoff Johns...but I'm sick of this Henry Allen in jail for allegedly murdering his wife stuff. Barry's parents were boring people without a real story to tell. Barry was kinda boring and so were his family...so just don't focus on them. He wasn't one of those heroes with a dramatic backstory. His blandness was just...part of the character. I mean even his haircut was bland.
Personally this goes back to what I think a lot of fans felt when the show started. Wally was always more interesting than Barry...the show should have been about Wally all along. Barry worked better as the dead mentor than he actually did as a main character. His silver ages adventures were great...but that had nothing to do with Barry as a person...he just had goofy powers (not the running...everything else) and colorful villains. Wally was the complex one...never Barry.
I like Geoff Johns writing, but not his his neediness for his childhood.
Wally West and Kyle Rainer were AMAZING legacy characters that wonderfully carried on the mantles of Flash and Green Lantern. It was until the big crybaby Johns came along that Barry and Hal came back. Barry and Hal had their time...let someone else play hero.
Don't make me start on a rant about all the Crisis(s), and whatever DC is going through now with Watchmen-esque stuff.
