    My prediction is Barry will save him by intercepting them before they reach the afterlife, and Wally appears to run him back to the world of the living.

    If that doesn't happen, Wally returns or the Legion calls down the lightning to bring Barry back.

    Or they could rescue his soul, and Barry stays in a never ending battle against Death to make sure he can't chase down Bart, then the Legion ressurect Barry not knowing that Bart is fucked. A general OH SHIT! moment ensues as we have multiple Flash's operating at once, with split stories as one goes to JLA, the other 2 stay in Flash (say Barry and Bart work on evading Death) like in GLC.


    Yeah I know none of that is very good or ideal, but hasn't Bart suffered enough bullshit from crappy writers? I'm grasping at straws as to how they can somehow not kill him without going back on their "No one comes back from the dead for quite a while" statements. Then again, depending on whoever the Legion brings bak will technically ruin that statement unless it's a Legion member that comes back to life.

    I like that actually. Barry told Wally he would be there on the 3 worst days of his life, did we ever get to see the 3rd one?

    I don't usually follow Flash happenings, but now every time they kill someone I'm afraid the replacement is going to be someone that has no business being the replacement.

    Guys.

    A. If they were going to kill Bart they probably wouldn't make it THAT obvious.

    B. I doubt they're going to let him go out by being beaten to death by the fucking Rogues.

    They've been looking for something for Jason Todd to do, and I think he'd be a great fit that provides a unique approach to the classic character.

    I mean instead of being really fast, he can just slow other people down by shooting them in their kneecaps.

    We're reinventing the wheel.

    It's just kind of anti-climactic.

    I mean, what if Batman died after getting a bullet to the head from the Joker?

    They're interesting characters, yes, but they're just not going to win here.

    The Flashes have always been about sacrifice and loss in many different ways, and I SERIOUSLY doubt it's going to go "Barry died alone and almost forgotten saving reality, Wally lost his first kid to a lunatic he helped create, and Bart...got fucked over by his evil clone and beat to death by some low-level superthugs."

    I dont really think you can consider them low level after the Johns run.

    I mean if it was like Mirror Master or whoever individually yeah thats lame, but as a group they are incredibly formidable.

    And you know Wally and Barry saved his twins from Zoom right? They are alive.

    Ordinarily I'd think that cover was misdirection or just symbolic, but between the 52 covers with Question and Booster dead, and the Countdown cover with Batman holding an obviously dead Blue Beetle, I'm pretty sure DC's stopped being real subtle when it comes to forecasting who's getting whacked next.

    Would a racist react negatively to Bart being replaced by a fictional minority?

    Or even an alien, like Kilowog?

    Would a homophobe get all pissed if Danny the Street became Flash?

    Though he's Danny the World now, and he's probably more concerned with getting a piece of Mogo's giant ass.

    Thing went back to DC replacing white mainstay characters with new minority versions, so I wondered if someone who's bothered by Captain Whatever being replaced by a black guy would react in more or less the same fashion upon seeing that Captain Whatever had been replaced by a giant alien pink guy with stuff all over his face, seeing as how both are technically minorities.

    And, similarly, if replacing a popular character with new, gay version would be the same as replacing such a character with a new, gay version who also happens to be a stretch of roadway.

    Generally, do racism and homophobia extend to fictional examples of minorities and homosexuals that bear little resemblance to real life examples?

    And then I began to wonder if Danny the World would ever try to hook up with Mogo. I mean, with only two sentient worlds in the universe, you'd think it'd be inevitable for one to make a move on the other.

    it's like

    sometimes you're nice and cool

    and sometimes you're a dick in the vein of Brainiac or Algertman or the other guy who's name I cannot remember

    fuck bringing back Barry, seriously. Quit whining about people being angry over character assassinations, you're just happy because the staff at DC is jerking off all over your favorite characters

    in a good way

    God forbid anyone else want to catch some pokemon in your tall grass.

    I mean, if you didn't want that, why have grass at all?

    Poketease.

    I predict that Barry comes back and says " Bart I am the flash now" then dies. Then Wally comes and says " I am the Flash..." and dies. Then Jay comes and says " I am the" and dies. And then Bart just explodes and the title gets passed onto the twins, who are shot in the head.
