I watched the first season with my eyes glued to the TV and loved seeing all the people being brought in that I knew from the comics. I think they did an amazing job. I knew right away when they killed off his mom that the reverse flash did it as that was the whole thing of Flash Rebirth. Originally, that was never part of the series but they brought it into the story because one of the great things about Barry Allen was that he fought Professor Zoom throughout time on his cosmic treadmill. I loved seeing that they were somewhat loyal to the comics; it made my year. Even though I was too young to see the old show, I went back and binge watched it years before this show ever came out. As most comic fans know when you love a character you have to absorb everything.
Now of course the whole blowing up the reactor and meta-humans thing was not in the comics to my knowledge. So of course they got some things wrong as well but I am not here to talk about what you already saw, I am here to talk about what you are about to see. I am talking about Season 2.
Well one new character they are bringing in is Patty Spivot who was a love interest in the new 52 of Barry’s but Barry has been with Iris for years and they have kids and grand-kids. They are a power couple and Iris is engrained in the Flash mythos that there was no need to change it. Now they could just be using her for the story and not a love interest. As before new 52 she was a friend of the Flash, but TV needs drama. Before we get into the next change in the new 52 I would like to say the change to Wally West, turned him African American and made him a graffiti delinquent. There was no need to make him a delinquent as Wally never was. In fact, that seems to be stereotypical of DC. They might have changed Wally’s race but kept Iris however as Caucasian. I could care less about race, it is the back-story that bugs me. Wally was established in the comics. In fact, he was the Flash we all grew up with. He saved the world on countless occasions, so lets reboot him and change his entire back story because that won't ruin people's childhoods.
So I am super excited for this new season and I can’t wait to see what will happen. Just please keep our Flash lore intact.
