by Olly MacNamee
Hot on the heels of our preview of The Flash #86 is our second speedster of the day, Wally West, in a preview of Flash Forward #5 by Scott Lobdell, Brett Booth, Norm Rapmund, Luis Guerrero and Troy Peteri .
Not only do we get a speedy summary of Wally’s complicated history, but we also edge closer to his fate in the DCU in this penultimate issue out this Wednesday January 15th from DC Comics. Will his recollection with his kids from the pre-Flashpoint DCU be a happy reunion, or something else? And, can Wally even stand another tragedy in his life? After all, look what happened the last time in Heroes in Crisis?
Wally West has gotten to the heart of his mission to save the Multiverse…and the heart he found was his own. When it’s discovered that the dark multiversal world that’s threatening all of existence is the world in which Wally’s children are alive, our hero must overcome his greatest fears, regrets, and anger to do what’s right. But what’s right is the hardest thing anyone would ever imagine doing…letting go.
