On the DC Universe blog, Alex Segura talks with writer (and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer) Geoff Johns about the April relaunch of The Flash, his approach to Barry Allen and the all-important Rogues Gallery:
The Flash has arguably the best villains in comics. Batman’s are amazing and psychological, but the Flash’s are from the far future and super scientific Gorilla Cities. Not to mention the core group of Flash’s foes, the Rogues. They were always a massive part of what made the Flash cool to me. He fought all these guys, sometimes at once because he could. When I first worked on the Flash the Rogues hadn’t been touched really more than an odd appearance here and there. I knew that they were going to be a huge focus for me and I continued using them in Rogues’ Revenge and Blackest Night: The Flash, but now with the new monthly book they’ll be playing a bigger and ongoing role in Barry’s life. There are some pretty big changes for the Rogues coming up that tie in to the very center of the DC Universe. Barry will be meeting some new villains, one in particular that is going to be the strangest killer he’s ever faced. And I think with 64th Century magicians and talking gorillas that’s saying a lot.
The interview will conclude at The Source on Friday.
