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 ?
The first few issues of JLA show that they're interested in him and I'm sure he'll join eventualy. However, Metzler's roster seems to be fixed so he won't be joining right away, which works out fine, as it will give him more time to get his footing as Flash.
