1) So both Barry AND Wally are called The Flash now, starting on late New Earth and current Prime Earth? So they're co-Flashes?

2) In post-crisis New Earth, why did Wally/Flash protect both Keystone City AND Central City, instead of just the latter? Was Jay Garrick getting too old to help Keystone?

3) It's my understanding that, post the post-crisis version of Crisis On Infinite Earths, Barry had died differently, and afterward when Wally made himself the new Flash, he continued with the Titans. How long until he was allowed to take his Uncle's place as part of the Justice League?

1. Yep.

2. Jay was in semi-retirement and helped out where he can. One thing to remember is that Keystone and Central City are literally right across from each other so it's pretty easy for Wally to patrol both and protect both. That's one reason he did it.

3. A long time. Wally tried to become a member of the JLA at first, but if I remember correctly everyone thought of him as too immature for it and that he needed to grow in experience first. Back when Grant Morrison started his JLA run, however, in the 90's we finally saw Wally in the JLA.

And as per Waid's run on the Flash title (Post Crisis) Barry died the same way he did in the Pre-Crisis universe.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
