Quote: I don't know much about Vandal Savage (Hasn't he undergone some retcons?), but I read that him and Wally used to be major enemies and that he was quite active in his book after Post Crisis. Were there any real good or standout encounters? I read that Vandal is or was very sadistic and evil. I do like what I read of/from the character, so I am interested in reading about his rivalry with Wally. Thanks.
They fought more than a few times. I think Vandal was the villain in that first storyline in Wally's solo book.
Personally I never saw him as an arch rival like say Captain Cold or Reverse Flash. I think even then Vandal has a rep as someone who could take on the Justice League.
Gotta agree here. Wally had a long run as the main Flash so I am surprised he never had his opposite, his own "Lex Luthor". But if he did, I'd pick Hunter Zolomon AKA Zoom.
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
