At the risk of coming off way foodaisy I am now a serious Flash fanatic again. If you've read my tweets over the years you would know that I became really pissed with Warner Bros when they underhandedly, single-handedly dismantled the DC Universe to launch their DCNEW52 line. Yes, yes...we all know how much of a disadvantage they are now at, and can't keep up competing with Marvel.
If you ask me...DC is the one going through an infinite crisis of their own right now. Just look at those percentages.
You know what the funny thing is though, check out the total shipped...
More DC shipped out than Marvel, and even Image, whose market share is barely over 10%. Can't wait for the shareholders to take DC to task on that one.
I'm still a fan of DC and hoping that they will right themselves real soon. I have always remained true to my love of The Flash, just not the DC52 Flash. But admittedly I am a Wally West kind of gall. Barry Allen - not so goofy, I am taking a shinning to his personality. Can't help it...it's the TV series on the CW that has me mad crazy for the guy in the red suit again. All hail Geoff Johns (never believed a word that the WB studio leaked that he had anything to do with The Green Lantern Movie wreck). Though I am normally not a fan of whacked out series adaptations that do not stick to the true, written version of the original printed book/ comic - I do love what they have done with #TheFlash.
I was way pissed when Dexter started airing on Showtime and it was not all together like the book. But I did eventually fall in love with the series. I love the rules the producers created for the TV Show universe:
1. No matter what no one is to find out that Dexter was a serial killer (they later broke their own rule).
2. Dexter could do no wrong.
It was brilliant.
And I love how they have embraced the fact that they have to include romantic elements with the storyline. Long ago when it came to these series they would shun trying to lure women viewers and curry to fan-boy fervor. Not anymore.
And The Flash has everyone guessing who could be The Reverse Flash. And who is Dr. Wells. Everyone believes he is The Reverse Flash because of the outcome of episode 9. I don't think so. That could be too easy to believe. Remember there have been many different Flashes. Could he be Inertia? I think the storyline starts off after #flashpoint and the last #infinitecrisis. Could The Reverse Flash be stuck in that timeline and needs technology to get him back, and is really not Dr. Wells, but a future version of Thawne? Did the Reverse Flash actually save the earth after The Flash tried to save his mother and created a rupture in the Time Continuum in the process? Look guys there have been many versions of the Flash, and I'm busy deriving my own conclusions - drawing on everything timeywimey I picked up as a fan of Dr. Who, Booster Gold, The Flash, Eureka and Uncanny X-Force to try and figure out what the writers of the TV series are up to.
