It worked for Hal's return.
> Boooo. What a great way to bring in young new readers. Bring in hero that is over 50. Yay! It didnt work when they switched to Bart, and this Flash is going to trip and fall as well. The only way it will work is if they just make Barry just like Wally, but call him Barry.

> > THE FLASH: REBIRTH #1
> > Written by Geoff Johns
> > Art and covers by Ethan Van Sciver
> > Through the decades, many heroes have taken the mantle of The Flash, but they all ride the lightning that crackles in the wake of the greatest hero the DC Universe has ever known, the man who sacrificed himself to save the Multiverse: Barry Allen!
> > Following the events of FINAL CRISIS, Barry has beaten death and returned to a fast-paced world that a man out of time wouldnâ€™t recognize. Or is it a world that is only just now catching up? All the running heâ€™s done before was just a warmup for the high-speed race that he and every other Flash must now run, because even though one speedster might have beaten death, another has just turned up dead! From Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver, the visionaries responsible for the blockbuster GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH and THE SINESTRO CORPS WAR, comes the start of an explosive and jaw-dropping epic that will reintroduce to the modern age the hero who single-handedly birthed the Silver Age of comics! DC history will be made, and the Flash legacy will be redefined!
