Following the events of Flashpoint way back in 2011, DC Comics went forward with their New 52 initiative to reintroduce the iconic characters of the DC Universe to newer readers. One of the many big changes that came with this initiative is the character Jay Garrick AKA The Flash, the original Flash. While the Earth 2 adaptations of iconic characters such as Garrick, The Green and Alan Scott was unanimously praised along with the story, the characters are vastly different from the originals which were iconic all on their own. With the Rebirth initiation, nothing is off the table. In the latest issue of the Flash (#22), Jay Garrick makes his return in his iconic outfit which is sure to excite many Flash fans.
The return of one of DC’s oldest characters could possibly hint at more pre-flashpoint history to return to the current continuity – something that veteran DC readers as well as newer readers can both appreciate.
