So, a new Wally West, with nothing to do with the original which generations of readers followed into his rightful destiny as The Flash... thoughts?

It's incredibly stupid. I put the comic back on the shelf after I saw it.

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?

As Kid Flash in the 80's when I started reading, he was pretty much a douchebag. After COIE when he took over being Flash, Mike Baron and then Bill Messner Loebs took advantage of his imperfect nature and wrote Flash as a real character study of a selfish, immature young man who was learning to be better. Then Mark Waid came along and made FLASH immensely popular, but he turned Wally into Peter Parker, and he stopped being interesting to me. It was very hard to imagine Wally as the same person.
