Exclusive Preview: Flash Forward #2

Two or three reboots ago, Wally West was the fastest man alive. However, the New 52 erased Wally from history and retconned his marriage and kids before leaving him adrift between worlds. We’re still blaming Doctor Manhattan for that one. Wally returned during DC Rebirth to a world that no longer needed him. This timeline had its own Wally West, and the original model needed some serious therapy. Unfortunately, during the events of Heroes in Crisis, Wally’s powers went berserk and he accidentally killed 13 heroes. Then he tried to cover it up.

Flash Forward is about Wally’s quest for redemption, whether he wants it or not. There’s a crisis brewing in the Dark Multiverse, as the twisted, half-formed worlds are infecting the rest of the Multiverse. Wally has been enlisted against his will to save reality as we know it. And his first stop is the world of President Superman!

In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Flash Forward #2, Scott Lobdell and artist Brett Booth bring Wally and President Superman together to face a mutual threat. President Superman’s Justice League also makes an appearance, but the burden of saving reality will still fall upon Wally’s shoulders.

Here’s the official description from DC: “When the border between the Multiverse and the Dark Multiverse starts to buckle, who do you turn to? The answer: Wally West. Once the Fastest Man Alive, he’s now a man with nothing left to live for. Will Tempus Fuginaut’s chosen champion rise to the occasion and fight back the demons of the darkness, or will Wally’s own demons win the day?

Flash Forward #2 will hit comic shops on Wednesday, October 16. Let us know what you think in the comment section below!
