COMICS: Wally West May Still Return In "The New 52" DC Universe

Fans weren't happy with DC's decision to leave Wally West out of "The New 52" DC Universe, but Dan Didio and Eddie Berganza have now confirmed that he (and Donna Troy) will return at some point.

Bleeding Cool's Siike Donnelly is at Megacon and has uncovered some very interesting details on a couple of the fan favourite characters missing from "The New 52" DC universe. Many comic book readers grew up knowing only Wally West as their Flash, and while the return of Barry Allen was met with approval a few years ago, the fact Wally was put on the back burner left many feeling disgruntled. However, "Flashpoint" (which essentially rebooted the DC Universe) took things a step further, with one very notable absence. Well, it appears that Wally may be back sooner than expected and so will Wonder Woman's Donna Troy.



That led us to a young man that asked about Wally West, to which of course I clapped and seconded. Dan and Eddie gave an answer that is going to keep me at bay with nerd rage for a while longer. He said because there were de-aging Barry, they didnt want him to be the same age as Wally. Plus they didnt want to take away Wally’s kids and family or make him a teenager again, especially with Bart already in that role. Dan also pointed out that someone close to him is a big Donna Troy fan, and Donna was given the same treatment when Wonder Woman was made younger in the relaunch. Their answer was that they are simply focusing on establishing the characters they started out with in this new 52, but not saying those other characters don’t exist or aren’t around in some way. They understand that everyone’s character is someone’s favorite. They just ask us Wally and Donna fans to be a bit more patient with them and those characters will be seen once more.


This is just a very small excerpt from the sites report so be sure to click on the link below for more details on the role of Darkseid and DC's Free Comic Book Day issue which will focus on Pandora, the mysterious hooded woman who ushered in the new universe at the conclusion of "Flashpoint." Would you like to see Wally West return? If so, in what form? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.
