COMICS: Who Is Daniel West, "The Newest Member Of The West Family"?
If you picked up The Flash #0 on Wednesday, you may have noticed the introduction of a new character who shares his surname with fan favourite Flash, 'Wally West'. Who is Daniel and what role will he play in "The New 52"? Read on for details!
When Daniel West was introduced in the pages of The Flash #0, he didn't really seem like that much of a big deal, despite sharing a surname with a character who has yet to make his debut in "The New 52" (much to the fury of Wally West's legion of fans). Well, DC's The Source blog have now posted a story with the headline, "Introducing the Newest Member of the West Family," making it clear that he'll play a pivotal role in the series moving forward and IS somehow related to Wally.
"Daniel West is a classic case of juvenile delinquency," series co-writer and artist Francis Manapul told the site. "Unfortunately for him, his first major crime is foiled by Flash's first ever outing as a superhero. In the present, after having served his debt to society, Daniel just wants his old life back. All he wants is to go back home. But what he finds is a city over run by apes, and a sister that's nowhere to be found. Welcome home indeed. He'll be setting forth to find his lost sister amidst the disastrous events of 'Gorilla Warfare!'"
So, what do you guys think Daniel West's role in the series will be? Barry Allen was close to the West family, but he showed no sign of actually knowing Daniel when he caught him in the pages of The Flash #0, making it unlikely that this will indeed mean the return of Wally. While some sort of resurrection for the character has been hinted at in the past, it has also been hinted at that he doesn't even exist in the new continuity...
