According to DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio, Wally West is going to play a big part in the future of the DC Universe.
"It's one of those books [that's] very focused on an individual character, but has bigger ramifications through the DC Universe," DiDio told DC Daily. He then went on to mention we will see West pop up in other stories as he goes along this journey for redemption.
The upcoming Flash Forward miniseries will feature six issues written by Scott Lobdell, with art from Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund. Picking up after the events of Heroes in Crisis, it will show the speedster as he tries to redeem himself for the part he played in killing several DC heroes.
As for the ending of the miniseries, DiDio teased, "There's a reveal at the end that's so important that will make Wally a very integral character in DC moving forward."
DiDio mentioned that, although Flash Forward stands alone, reading Heroes in Crisis beforehand might give readers a richer experience.
Flash Forward #1 goes on sale Sept. 18 from DC.
