Following the Flash, the fastest man alive!
I wish that DC would've stuck to their guns, despite the word getting leaked out early, and made Cpt. Atom the one who ends up in that suit.....oops! Hope I didn't spoil that for anyone.What was interesting around that time, not to change the subject, was the storylines the Flash went through, since the '87 relaunch. A lot of variety, not a lot of multi-issue plots, but enough to justify spending a couple of Washingtons on our Fleet Feet hero.
I remember when this ad first came out it featured Wally in the pre-shiny suit. Later ads conformed to what was happening in the book and his look was altered.I never heard about the leak; however, I was a little disappointed with the end result. I really didn't knwo about Hawk & Dove up until then.One of the Superman annuals was awesome. The Flash tie-in... not so much.
Two of the books I really liked in the early 1990s were Hawk & Dove and Starman.Two years in a row, I got to watch one of my favorite series get canceled and its star(s) killed off as part of the big summer crossover. First Armageddon 2001, then Eclipso: The Darkness Within.Have I mentioned I don't like big crossovers much?
