    I was never a big fan, but unfortunately I'm also quite cynical. I have a bad feeling that his replacement will make me long for the good old days of Dan DiDio.

I've never understood this ambivalence towards Barry Allen.

Yes, it's true that his book wasn't great in the 1970's and 80's but then, neither was Hal Jordan's.

I think the only reason Hal is lauded today while Barry isn't, is they didn't kill Hal in the Crisis. He survived and went on to have better stories written about him in the late 80's and 90's. Barry never had that opportunity.

But let's not forget that Hal Jordan is the only major character in DC's catalogue who makes no appearance in Crisis on Infinte Earths. Not one solitary panel features him.
