Snark Free Corner for 3/10

Welcome to the latest installment of your breath of snark free air!

Enjoy!

SNARK FREE DEBATE

Better current Flash – Wally West or a resurrected Barry Allen?

Pros of Wally – He has been the Flash now for almost two decades, and is the Flash who is now known to the general public, via his appearances on the Justice League cartoon.

He is a connective force to the most of the DC Universe, as he is close friends with the older Justice League members while remaining close friends with his peers, heroes like Nightwing and Donna Troy.

He also is one of the rare superheroes to be happily married, with kids. That gives him a unique voice in the DC Universe.

Cons of Wally – He is happily married, with kids. As a result, any comic starring Wally is basically a team book. That might not fly for a solo hero.

His kids might not be the most popular characters in the whole world.

Pros of Barry – He was the first Flash.

Besides his wife, he has no real connections, so he is set up well for a solo book.

His career as a forensic scientist is really hip nowadays, post-CSI.

The success of Green Lantern shows that the original Silver Age character can be the star again.

Cons of Barry – He has been dead for over 20 years.

While not unpopular, his comic was not particularly popular when he was last the Flash (as opposed to Hal Jordan, who had a high selling comic in the 80s/early 90s).

Well – who do you think would be the best Flash for the DC Universe now?

And remember, snark free corner here!

COVER THEME GAME

As always, here is the game. I show three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, a trait all three characters share, locale, creator, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They all have logos!” “They all feature a man!” etc.

In addition, please note that you must have some familiarity with comic book history to correctly guess these comics. You cannot guess the connective theme just by looking at the covers solely, you must have some knowledge beyond just the covers.

A cool point to the first person to figure it out!

Good luck!
