It has my attention. Always loved Green Lantern and Flashes relationship. Let's see how its handled in the 52 verse.

Love Barry with the ring
sephiroth211 - 4/8/2013, 12:48 PM
Anyways, sweet. Faster friends ftw!! Was wondering if these two would be friends in this new 52 world. I've always liked that a speedster always seemed to befriend a Lantern. Hal and Barry's friendship was the best though. They felt more like brothers...more than Kyle and Wally anyway.

Cool. Is there a World's Finest series in the New 52? If not, maybe, to avoid the overuse of Batman, they should change it into a 'team-up' title. So, like, for one story arc, it's about Batman and Superman teaming up. Then the next story arc is about Flash and Green Lantern teaming up. Then they could do an arc with Aquaman and Wonder Woman. Then, like Nightwing and Cyborg. Supergirl and Batgirl. Martian Manhunter and Green Lantern. Flash and Superman. Batman and Wonder Woman.

Just keep changing up the team every story arc, over and over. Similar to The Brave And The Bold comics, except not just about Batman teaming up with different heroes.

the minigun was cool for a second. i wanted to see just simple blasts of energy and some kind of cool/creative weapon use

That what we need for a movie, GL/Flash team-up.

Nice, love the Barry and Hal interaction, they showed a bit of it in JL, Kyle and Wally were fun too, looking forward to this.
BANEofExistence - 4/8/2013, 1:41 PM
The ultimate Glash and ultimate GL! Hal and Barry FTW
unknownfacts - 4/8/2013, 1:42 PM
DC's other great team up. Why is it so under used?
staypuffed - 4/8/2013, 1:53 PM
Digging that cover. Nice to see some Flash/Lantern love.

The design team behind Doom also did Crisis on Two Earths and the Young Justice cartoon. That's about as close as we're going to get, given what happened to Young Justice.

Shouldn't he have a Blue Lantern Ring?
thebearjew - 4/8/2013, 2:05 PM
manapul was born to illastrate the flash i love the art in this series
Gambitz - 4/8/2013, 2:42 PM
Great cover.
duncboy - 4/8/2013, 3:26 PM
Sort of a dumb idea - I thought the GL rings had to choose their wearer, almost like Thor's Hammer determines if they are "worthy"?
aRandomSinisterClone - 4/8/2013, 3:52 PM
damn, that art is so disappointing. hope the inside art is better than the cover
CeltiC527 - 4/8/2013, 3:54 PM
I love the Hal and Barry relationship. We need a Brave and the Bold film!

^ i was just gonna post, the issue better be titled "the brave and the bold"
FlashFacts - 4/8/2013, 4:24 PM
@Celtic i always thought the best way to build up to Justice League was "Worlds Finest" and Then "Brave and the Bold"
Vaportrail - 4/8/2013, 6:49 PM
Is it me, or is New 52 GL kind of a wuss?

I mean, look at this. This isn't a team-up. This is Flash saving a damsel in distress.
SnapperCarr - 4/8/2013, 7:56 PM
Now all we need is Hawkman/The Atom.

Will have to pick this one up. Looks good!

On a completely different topic .. anyone know where Sephiroth211 got his avatar from? Looks like a movie perhaps?
sephiroth211 - 4/9/2013, 4:51 PM
Wally West? Are you high? That hack of a Speedster shouldn't ever be brought back.
