It's finally here! The oversized, incredible, universe-changing 80-page DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 from the genius mind of Geoff Johns is out this Wednesday, May 25th, and with it comes a shocking surprise…

No Caption Provided

…the return of the beloved Fastest-Man-Alive, the Fiery-Haired-Flash, the Scarlet-Speedster, the "missing" Titan, Wally West!

Lost in the Speed Force until this moment, Wally will rejoin teammates Donna Troy, Arsenal, Garth, Lilith and Nightwing for TITANS: REBIRTH #1, hitting shelves June 15th.

In order to keep the mystery alive, DC solicited a cover featuring Donna Troy, leaving fans to wonder if the lost Titan would ever make a return. But now that Wally has appeared in the pages of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1, we can safely say the secret is out!

You can check out how he makes it home by picking up DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 this Wednesday, but you'll have to wait until TITANS: REBIRTH #1 to find out how the Titans react to his incredible reappearance.

No Caption Provided

Read more from writer Dan Abnett and artists Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund in June with TITANS: REBIRTH #1!

Oh my! That's incredibly exciting! In that cover he has a red outfit, too! I hope he gets a new secret identity, though, and I wonder what that could be. I have never been fond of multiple guys having the same identity.

Ah, so he'll be in Titans right from the start. That is pretty awesome; I'll be looking forward to it. Is his outfit just going to be a red version of the original KF outfit? That could be cool.

If only we could pre-52 Connor Kent and Cassie Sandsmark back as well. =/

So one of the major revelations of the one-shot (as per the advance reviews) is that the New 52 Wally is the original Wally's cousin, and not, as initially believed, the original Wally but younger and black. Should we do separate pages for the two now?

She appears on the cover for August's issue (I think issue #2).

@n00beditor3: Yes. I actually brought this up to Geoff Johns and how it's tricky for our wiki. I mentioned they should have different middle names or something. So NEW 52 Wally should have his own page and his appearance should be removed from the New 52 Flash issues.

@apokos7: yeah but she was the one with Speed Force. Will she continue with Speed Force or will go to Preflashpoint route with no Power but with hightech suit?

Probably nothing. That's exactly why they're retconning it so that New 52 Wally is Classic Wally's cousin and not the same person. So now they get a Wally who looks like the one on their popular TV show AND the one who longtime fans remember. It's basically a win-win for DC.

On Teen Titans by Ben Percy, yes you're correct. But on TITANS by Dan Abnett, Booth is the artist.

New52 Wally should go by Walter West maybe? While Pre52 is Wally Rudolph West.

Wait, so not only is Ginger!Wally back, they're also giving him a new suit/identity? AND he'll be the focus of Titans for a while?! AND Dan Abnett is writin it?!

DC, I take back everything bad thing I ever said about you.

So for a new page for New 52 Wally, would simply titling it "Kid Flash" for now work?

Case in point, my dad and one of his cousins both have the same first name. They were both named after the same grandfather.

yes, the classic Wally we've all come to know and love is here, rather than the annoying stereotype created to hype up a crappy show. deal with it.

@amazing_webhead: except only white guys feel that way about him. He's mixed, not "black" as most DC50s fans love to hate him for and 2) there's nothing "urban", which I'm assuming you meant inner-city/ghetto about him. To most of us "black" guys reading he seems pretty white except for his mixed blood. He acts like a typical suburban kid who grew up around white people.

Yeah I was so bummed that the titans would only have 5 out of the 6 original members, but guess not :D

But tbh, it's pretty annoying that we have 2 wally west's :/

This also gives our Clark (White) another person from his universe.
