It's official according to the most recent blog post on DC's SOURCE that Barry Allen also known as The Flash will not only be a single man in the upcoming DC revamp, but he will never have married Iris West. That's right, they are erasing the Barry/Iris marriage completely out of continuity. In fact, in Barry's all new ongoing series 'The Flash,' he will be dating his co-worker Patty Spivot.
The Flash is a single man. He’s a bachelor who has never been married. Yes, folks — in the post-FLASHPOINT world, Barry Allen has not only never dated Iris West, but he’s dating someone else entirely in issue #1! And that someone is…his longtime coworker Patty Spivot!
Perhaps the end of the marriage between Barry Allen and Iris West won't make national news headlines like the Lois Lane/Clark Kent marriage did, but the dissolution of their marriage is in no way less important to comics and comic fans. In fact, I would venture to say that the Barry/Iris marriage was more interesting and more developed than Lois and Clark, even if it wasn't nearly as popular. What do you think of the news about Barry Allen being a single guy who has never been married?
Update: Barry Allen's marriage status in the New 52 was actually revealed to us at Comic-Con! Watch Tony's interview with Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato for more details.
