Barry. Barry is not MY Flash. Barry is a dull, weak, flat character. The original TV show version of Barry is more Wally, even the current TV version is more Wally. Barry, like Jason Todd, is a better character as a memory, a corpse, a motivation. Barry’s death gave better characters a chance to shine and be aspirational and inspirational. Bringing him back wastes decades of good storytelling and character building. And he’s still dull. Even his biggest cheerleaders had to retroactively create a dark and gritty backstory just to make him even remotely interesting. I don’t hate Barry Allen. I just don’t like him. Flash Week nearly hitting a wall, face first.
