The Flash in "Heaven"

Ever since Barry Allen's return, it seems that DC has been ignoring Wally West, my generation's Flash. Hopefully this is just temporarily, and he'll return to prominence soon, but until then, at least I have the back issues, where I can read about my favorite speedster. And he was shirtless a lot, especially in the early issues.

These scans are from The Flash Vol. 2 #50, Wally has just been killed Vandal Savage in the previous issue, but like any other Flash that has died he returned to life. But before he comes back to the land of the living he goes to (or hallucinates about) heaven.

I love the fact that whenever a male superhero has an out of body experience, most of the time they're shirtless. Wouldn't it make more sense if they were naked, since you aren't supposed to be able to take your clothes with you into a higher plain of existence? Not that I'm complaining though, shirtless Wally is always a good thing. Plus it's kind of funny that he's wearing Flash-like pajama bottoms.




Wally West, ladies man!

Yeah, Dick and Roy will not be amused! Also, why is Raven the only woman who isn't all over him? Out of all the female Titans, she was the one who sort of had a thing for Wally. Well, at least she got to speak.

I know! I've been a Wally\Raven shipper from way back!

And now she is/was with Beast Boy. Totally did not see that coming!

Beast Boy!?! That's out of left field for sure, total personality clash I'd think.
