Bleeding Cool has pointed out the strange DC Universe incongruity that everyone seemed to notice that Heroes In Crisis saw Roy Harper die over in Green Arrow and Titans. But, no one even mentioned the departed Wally West. Not in Flash, not in Titans, nothing.
Well, today the Flash book catches up with Heroes In Crisis in Flash Annual #2, with Barry Allen telling everyone the bad news.
But why would anyone believe it? This is a superhero comic. And this is another Wally West wondering why the first Wally West can't also return. I mean, he has a point.
As does Iris West. It does seem a waste to bring him back from the dead only to kill him off again so soon. And over in today's Teen Titans Annual, also discussing the events of Heroes In Crisis…
…Jason Todd reflects that attitude with Damian Wayne.
