On Saturday, Bleeding Cool ran one explanation for the absence of Wally West in the new DCU, given in person by Dan DiDio. But it may not be the only one.
Because, according to one Little Bleeder, there is another in continuity explanation for the missing character, just waiting to spill. Specifically a way in which he may yet return.
I just read your piece on Wally West. I work in TV and interviewed Dan Didio… afterwards I asked him about Wally and he told me that Wally is lost outside of space and time searching for his family/universe and they would be dealing with that story sometime in the future. That was in August so who knows if it will actually happen but I thought it was interesting.
So Wally West fans? Do not give up hope!!!
Of course, it could just have been Dan playing with him. If I was Dan, I’d have several hundred explanations ready to go. In case he’s running out, may I suggest “He’s running so fast, no one can see him. He’s literally in every New DCU book. So if you’re Wally West fans you should buy them all. You never know in which issue he might slow down for a millisecond…”
