I think they will be a couple eventually. I think in this circumstance DC wants Iris to be black on the show so they can (eventually) showcase an interracial relationship. I'm sure that's what they are building to.

Which might be interesting...to my mind you never have that will they/won't they type dynamic on TV with interracial couples. I just hope they don't drag it out forever like Sam/Diane, Niles/Daphne, Ross/Rachel. Hopefully by season 2 they will be a couple.

    I'm one of the fans who lobbied for Wally West's return as THE Flash.  And even though I'm Black, I wasn't impressed with DC bringing him into the NU52 as an African American.  Personally, I don't think a character needs to be changed on such a fundamental level to garner new readership.  Seems forced.  If you want a Black character, simply create a new one and establish a rich history.  Or... God forbid, spotlight the characters that already exist like Black Lightning, Static or Green Lantern John Stewart.


I thought they made great use of John Stewart in the Justice League cartoon series.

I don't mind replacing one white character with a separate established black character. I do kind of mind when one white character gets adapted for a movie and tv show and their ethnicity is changed from white to black but it's the same character.

I mean there are good black characters out there to use.

    With that in mind, I really didn't expect much.  But I'm walking away a fan of the show.  And I'm genuinely looking forward to what the show brings.  Even with the NU52 changes, the writing and production are of such caliber that I've been won over!

Thanks for listening.  And take care!
