WALLY’S REDEMPTION
DC NEWS-071619
Flash Forward Picks Up Where Heroes in Crisis Leaves Off

When the New 52 debuted Wally West was nowhere to be seen until he returned in the DC Universe: Rebirth one-shot. Once Wally showed up the rest of the DCU started remembering the original reality, some more than others. But the return had issues since Wally’s wife, Linda Park, refused to accept the memories of her and Wally's previous life, and their two children never existed. Wally ended up in Sanctuary and ended up killing the other patients when he lost control of his powers. He made things worse by framing Harley Quinn and Booster Gold for the accident and faking his own death. When Heroes In Crisis ended Wally found himself in prison. Wally’s fate will be examined in the six-issue Flash Forward limited series from Scott Lobdell and Brett Booth this September. According to Lobdell, "Often when you read about the marketing of an event, you'll see a variation of, 'After this issue...nothing will ever be the same!' But then the next month's issues come out and -- everything is the same. Reading Heroes in Crisis, it was very clear that Wally's story couldn't end on the ninth issue. So much had happened to him over the last year, and going back to Rebirth and going all the way back to the New 52 and Flashpoint...everyone agreed we'd be doing a huge disservice to a character that it could easily be argued is one of the greatest fan favorites in all of comics." Wally’s return was always promised as returning hope to the DC Universe and Lobdell says that everything we have seen about Wally since Flashpoint, New 52, Rebirth and Heroes In Crisis has been one story all along. Wally will take on a villain hinted at on in the cover for the first issue and we have seen this villain before during the last two years.
