Convergence Week 4

Given the tease of a Crisis in 2024 that is shown at the end of the Flash premiere, this makes sense.

Waid's arc on Wally is pretty phenomenal. I'd dig as deep as you comfortably can. The total run is from around issue 62 to 159, I think.

Agree with the Return of Barry Allen 73-79. I'm also...

I will always have a soft spot for the mid 90s menagerie that was called the Justice League. Especially Yazz. But that is because looking back they were so bad I can't look away. Like a train...
