Hi all \:\-\)

I've been following the new Flash ever since post Infinite Crisis and I've got to say... while he is still a newbie to the Flash game compared to the old Wally West, having the Speed Force contained within him has definitely put Bart in a class of his own now. Here he exceeds the speed of light as if it were nothing while for Wally it was always a big deal just reaching light speed. Whenever Wally broke the light speed Barrier there was always the risk that he would get trapped forever in the Speed Force. Obviously Bart doesn't have that problem now.

So, can the JLA actually get along without some kind of specialist Speedster, instead relying on Supes and Wonder Woman's natural speed ?

Or is Bart going to finally join ?

I wouldn't say he exceeds the speed of light, as he has a head start. While both are moving at the speed of light, Bart had a slight advantage seeing that he started a millisecond before the beam.

IIRC, at the end of Wally run, the light speed barrier was no longer an issue. Wally had master the Speed Force enough that he could go pass the speed of light without any problems.

True

I let you know after issue 6 of the JLA. \:\-\)

I would love to see Bart on the JLA
