Reading: The Flash: Godspeed is Here
At the end of The Flash ’ s fourthly season, we saw a lightning storm. different colors rained down from the sky in the wake island of the Thinker ’ s destruction. We ’ ra now promptly approaching the end of season five and there ’ s a pretty heavy implication that the lightning ramp was a little closer to what writer Josh Williamson and artist Carmine Di Giandomenico created in their Godspeed storyline. What could be actually cool about this is the lightning storm no long has to tie back to Nora Allen, but it could. possibly her traveling through meter created the storm that infused Godspeed with his powers and gave us what, in my opinion, is one of the coolest speedster suits the show has seen in a long while. Readers familiar with Lightning Strikes Twice besides know that if Godspeed is around, it besides opens the door for a hale bunch of new speedsters to emerge and populate the future seasons of The Flash. I ’ ve mentioned this in a bunch of places here on DCComics.com, but the post-Godspeed character I would be most aroused about seeing is Dr. Meena Dhawan. Or Avery Ho from The Justice League of China. Both of whom introduction aboard Godspeed. now, I badly doubt we ’ ll be seeing either of them in tonight ’ south episode. But the fact that The Flash is now dipping into Barry ’ s Rebirth-era adventures suggests that the door to their eventual appearance on the appearance has never been wider.
What we will see in tonight ’ sulfur episode, though, are some serious glimpses into Nora West-Allen ’ sulfur biography before she traveled back in time. now, you know, Nora learned most of her facts concerning her beget through the Flash Museum. I ’ m not sure how much, if any, we ’ ll learn of the museum tonight, but I ’ thousand bright. In fact, I ’ thousand always holding out hope we ’ ll finally get the Flash Museum in its full and complete aura. We ’ ve already had so many glimpses of it—including in Nora ’ mho memories, which I guess can be considered flash forwards. Of naturally, I super want to see the Flash Museum arrive in the “ confront sidereal day ” timeline of the indicate. If my find to see such a thing come to life means so far another badly guy across the paths of Team Flash, I can wholly live with it. In some of the Flash ’ s more recent Rebirth stories, we ’ ve learned that there are extra “ Forces ” portray in the DC Universe besides the Speed Force. This international relations and security network ’ t a development strictly tied to Godspeed, but it could be a manner to allow for a greater diverseness of threats to Team Flash in future seasons that stretch a little beyond the typical super-villains we are used to seeing. PLUS, the introduction of these forces ties into some of Barry Allen ’ s children in the stream comedian book continuity. It would make sense to introduce the raw forces to take down the new menace presented by Godspeed if Nora is to remain a full-time hurl member of The Flash. I doubt we ’ rhenium identical likely to see any of Barry and Iris ’ other children, but the copulate is young and they surely have the time to have more than one child—especially if the Flash turns out to not disappear in that crisis ! But the Arrowverse ’ s take on Crisis is still over six months off. There ’ s so much Godspeed—and the writers of The Flash—could get up to between now and then !
