The Flash is doomed! That's what DC Comics would have us believe. The publisher has released a Countdown teaser poster clearly intended to add fuel to the flames of speculation sparked by the ominous previews for The Flash # 13-15. The artwork--an homage to the classic cover for The Flash #174 by Carmine Infantino and Murphy Anderson--features the scarlet speedster lying collapsed at the collective feet of his Rogues Gallery. Additionally, the somewhat essential descriptor "ALIVE" has crumbled from the fastest man's subtitle. Is the latest hero to wear the crimson costume facing his end? According to Newsarama, DC Comics has only this to say: "The Countdown continues in The Flash #13."
