What BS. The DC editors seem intent on consistently stringing along fans of the forgotten (Wally, Cass, Steph) with false hope and vague teases, only to never have it come to fruition. It's complete and utter bullhockey. I'll believe it when I see it, in the form of him being back in comics.

That pretty much covers me.

Even if they did bring him back, his history and personality would probably be too warped to recognize anyway.

That's just Didio joking.

Saw it earlier. If it happens, it will something minor like Dial H or Multiversity most likely.

Yeah, most likely. Those are the only way for him to appear as Flash. Although tbh I am not sure I would want for him to be back, the way things are now.

Still that doesn't mean I don't get informed on the characters I like.

i prefer Barry over Wally and don't think the new 52 needs more than one flash, maybe bring back wally as impulse?!! or create a new super hero alias for him with his popularity you'd think the options for DC are endless, i'd like to see him maybe reinvented in the peter parker mold

Why do we need so many Flashes? Seriously we have Barry Allen in Justice League and his own book and then we have Jay Garrick in Earth-2! Whats the obsession with bringing absolutely every character back. This is why the Big 2 suck at bringing fresh and inspiring new ideas to comics when they keep on recycling these old characters.

He won't do it. There's more chance of him bringing back Stephanie Brown than Wally, and you know the chances of that...

I bet he's joking as a flex of power to show he's not threatened by all the hate he gets on a regular basis. It's not like people could like him any less if it were a lie. Good for him.

How about a New 52 Adam Strange

Maybe Dan Didio has a friend or relative named Wally? lol

Since New 52 began because of Flashpoint, could the return of a lost Flash signal the end of New 52? This isn't me being hopeful - I think it could go either way at this point.

Hm... I think there may be something to this, if only because it's strangely specific for an offhand comment. And there IS that new West character in Flash...

It has nothing to do with bringing another Flash back. It's about bringing back a beloved character. Wally is not the same person as Barry or Jay. They are different characters. There is more to a character than their powers or mantle.

I do not thing that is possible anymore either. In Nightwing, Lady Shiva is said to be around Dick's age.

Honestly, I don't see why we can't bring Wally back as Kid Flash. I would hate to earse his history, but I rather he be back as a kid than not be back at all.

I love Wally and all, but...

I want Donna Troy, Cassandra Cain, and Renee Montoya to return instead.

@colonyofcells: nice idea but Daniel is almost definitely Wally's dad, I mean there's only been two west's confirmed in the new 52, Daniel and Iris, and we know Iris is Wally's aunt, so that really only leaves one option

Pre flashpoint, the name of Wally's father was Rudy (Rudolph like the most famous reindeer of all).
