> the issue hasn't come out yet, so i'm judging from the preview, but isn't it a bit hypocritical of the JLA to come for Wally's kids, claiming he's endangering them. This particularly from Batman, who's put how many children in danger? Or superman with the current Chris Kent storyline, Wonder Woman and Cassie....should we even mention the whole titans?

> Again, this could be some part of the aliens plot, but it does give people who don't read Flash the wrong idea of wally and the kids....

Nice cover art and backup story art. The main art was more effective than last issue. And they covered those JLA juvenile concerns specifically in a fair handed way. Really liked their discussions. Nice opening page and alien threat. There were still some problems that prevented me from fully committing to the new direction though.

The 'DARN' cover prices inequity!!!!!
The superfluous COUNTDOWN 27 crossover note.
A Previously Page (oh Marvel what have you started?!)
Wally can't vibrate and relies on his daughter's coincidental power.
Fire all weapons?
Have to presume Wally quickly got back with phasing help after a skillful(?) rehydration method.
Black Lightning seems a little callous in his banter for him.
JLA's save the day panels were not that special.
Wally's alien seem to escape quite easily compared to the other.

The uniform integration was new to me (haven't followed Flash and missed this new quick change method).

Wally's imagining sequence should have been bordered differently!
Wally's defense of his supersidekicks WAS fair but in the debate, I still side with the JLA in this case.
Saw no point to the cliffhanger page.

The backup seemed like a generic filler story (with nice art!). The overwhelming nitpick question while reading it was humourously echoed in the last sentence which was rewarding for about 10 seconds until I realized it was an unanswered question.





Hire Humbug:

and enter the current caption contest...

This is my first Flash comic in over 6 yrs...

But I have to agree with you.

Wally really shouldn't put his kids in those kind of situations (Like Elasti-girl from the Incredibles said to her kids... "These bad guys will try to kill you... don't give them that chance" and they were caught in a scenario not of Elasti-Girl's liking or choosing).

I think the League was right. Though I think Wally firing back was right as well. At least in the conversation they (Wally and Linda) were in agreement with it. But like Diana said... they aren't alone.

So I think they should have gone to the League first and foremost. I mean some of the world's most incredible scientists are either a super hero or the Heroes know them.

So my vote goes with the League. Let Wally have them use their abilities to their hearts content (Like the new Mutants). But not in combat. I could care less what their conditions are. Getting them killed is not living. You think Barry would be the perfect example of what can ultimately happen.

...now if they sneak off... well that is different.
