Dan DiDio Promises Major Wally West Event From DC Comics in 2020

Wally West has been through the wringer at DC Comics. Deleted from existence as part of the New 52 reboot, reinvented as a new character to tie in with the TV show, his original version brought back in DC Rebirth, though missing his wife and kids, sending him a little doolally, threatening the world so much he was sent to the Sanctuary, where for some reason he ended up killing almost all the residents, and now in prison.

You’d almost think someone at DC Comics just doesn’t like redheads. Also, see Poison Ivy. Jimmy Olsen, watch out, you’re next.

Anyway, at the DC Publishers Panel at San Diego Comic-Con today, DC Comics publisher Dan DiDio answered questions about the character’s future. Stating that DC Comics is going to put Wally through the wringer, again, in the upcoming series Wally West: Flash Forward, and that this mini-series by Scott Lobdell. Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund will kick off a major event in 2020 for DC Comics.
