I even remember that he had his 20th birthday at issue #1 of the post-CoIE run, written by Mike Baron. Considering that Barry was always around 10 or so years older than Wally... doesn't his "auscence" make him now much closer to Wally's age than to that of his former teammates of the League? By this same line of thinking, Iris is also now much older than him.If Barry, as well as Iris and the Leaguers, were around 25 to 29 when the Crisis on Infinite Earths happened... let's say, Barry died at 29, five or six years passed... now Wally might be 24 or 25, while the Leaguers and Iris are in their mid-30s... but Barry is still 29. Right?

Ah, so that's the trick, uh? Nice...

Fair enough. Thanks for your response!
