    This season on The Flash, people from other universes will make their way into Barry Allen's world, and one of those people is Jay Garrick, the Golden Age Flash. This new promo not only shows him off but also the upcoming villain Atom Smasher, played by Adam Copeland.

    The Flash returns to CW on Tuesday, October 7.

    If Atom Smasher doesn't intercept Flash with a Spear tackle at some point, I'm going to be so disappointed.

    It is interesting how completely turned around I am on Flash vs Arrow. At first I dismissed Flash as the trope-filled superhero show, but now I prefer to watch that over the trope-filled soap opera that Arrow has become.

    The darkness that is the terrible plot in season 3 of Arrow made the light appear bright on the Flash side.

    Besides the Flash signal, I really liked this promo. Can't wait for season 2 to actually start.

    Flash could definitely use some improvement in competent plotting (like locks on the doors at Star Labs), but I think it is the best DC superhero content right now. Arrow has substantially decreased in enjoyment.

    I always laugh about the lack of locked doors going on at Star Labs, why when the Season 1 finale hit and they are all like OMG Wells/Eobard might be here, kids you do realise anyone could walk in here right?

    Although if they did use that for some scary thing like Grodd comes in and waits for the team that would be terrifying!

    Yeah I was just whelmed by the Arrow promo..Season 3 was atrocious, like mind-boggling terrible and stupid. I can go on and on but I won't. The Flash, however, was amazing since the very first episode and I'm ecstatic for Season 2.

    Flash really is so much better than the trash fans call Arrow, now before the fanboys tell me there wouldnt be a Flash show without Arrow, thats not true as they could have easily made Flash from the beginning without Arrow at all, plus Flash has surpassed Arrow ratings wise.

    Thawne sped up the accident that happened to Barry by a few years.

    went back in time, sped up the accident, got barry more experienced while younger so he could go home sooner.

    kind of the same story line as infamous lol
