COMICS: Francis Manapul And Brian Buccellato Discuss Bringing Reverse-Flash Into The New 52

As most remember, Reverse-Flash was responsible for bring forth the New 52 in the Flashpoint arc. Flash writers Francis Manapul & Brian Buccellato talked recently about bringing him into The New 52, costume updates, and if Barry would remember him from the events of Flashpoint.


Reverse-Flash is set to make his debut in an upcoming issue of The Flash. Previously, Flash writers Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato have promised that Reverse-Flash will be making his debut with a new look. What it sounds like is that you can say goodbye to the yellow costume. "This may be a bit of a knock against the classic versions, but MAAAAAN his costume was YELLOW. I'm sure some might hammer me for not liking the old costume, but I think our version looks WAY MORE badass and, dare I say, SCARY," Buccellato told Comic Vine. Manapul went on to say that updating his looks is more out of necessity for the story more than anything. Both also said that using pre-New 52 Reverse-Flash was never really a thought they entertained.

The events of Flashpoint, which set The New 52 off, will not be addressed when Reverse-Flash makes his return. Manapul said that Barry has no recollection of Flashpoint and that, "this will be his FIRST dealing with Reverse Flash." They even said that they are already planning on what to do after the Reverse-Flash arc is over.

Although the main arc of the story will start in issue 20, you can expect the first appearance of Reverse-Flash in issue 17. For the latest on all things comics make sure to check back here at CBM.
