- Wally Whateley of the House of Horrors succinctly suggests "this comic just isn't worth it. Bart Allen is not the Flash. And I'm not going to waste my money on this one anymore."
- Comic Book Revolution "continues to be thoroughly unimpressed with this new Flash. The writing has been terribly weak. The storyline is poorly constructed and lacks any real intrigue. The dialogue has been below average at times. The artwork has been rather inconsistent. I have a feeling that the Flash is going to fall victim to the Revolution’s axe." (4 out of 10)
- FanBoy Wonder's bottom line is the same. "This re-launch has been a disappointment from the very start and not only because the premise seems so distressingly familiar: A one-time Kid Flash must step up and reluctantly assume the mantle of the Flash after the previous Scarlet Speedster was downed during the events of a Crisis... We’re going to give this book two more issues to improve (with or without this current creative team) before we drop it."

One thing has become clear: Bart Allen has had a shaky start as the scarlet speedster. Negative reviews continue to pour in for the fastest man alive's most recent adventure. The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive #4, on sale now, is the latest issue to receive some bad word of mouth, and a number of readers and reviewers are losing their patience.
