Default Bart News: New Writer on Flash

Looks like DC has acknowledged that things weren't working with the Paul DeMeo and Danny Bilson-written version of Flash, so its time for another shake-up.

http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=90882

The new writer will be Marc Guggenheim, starting with the February issue (#9).

EDIT: Bart will be staying in the title role.

“Bart’s the Flash now,” the writer said. “The one and only. He's the heir to Barry and Wally's mantle. In fact, that's the thrust of my first issue and, at least, the initial few issues of my run. My mission statement is to firmly ensconce Bart as both the Flash and a major player in the DCU, befitting his heritage. My other mission statement -- which is just as important -- is to make the title new-reader accessible since, as you point out, some people may have given the first eight issues of the title a pass.”

Sorry, but the article did state that we have to get over our complaints and try to get use to the new Status quo.

I like the idea of the story and if everyone remembes this happened with Wally but he was both on the JLA and Titans at the same time and so did Walter West. However, this is about Bart having to choose one of the two. Going Justice League would be Bart graduating to the big leagues but if he goes back to the Teen Titans he's with his old friends again plus it isn't like the Teen Titans are all made out of teens of course, you have Cyborg and Jericho is back to being a young man in his early 20's. It works very well plus keep in mind, Rose is 18 and Bart is 21, could prove for some intersting stories especially with Inertia plauging him and Tad's role on Titans East.

Alleluia, step 1 complete. Now on to step 2 where they retcon Bart back to a teenager, either with this writer or the next can get onto that task, but they really should get to it sooner rather than later. We're halfway there.

Too bad. I liked Bilson and Demeo's run.

I thought I put that quote up as well, but I guess I didn't. Here it is anyway:

So – February, then…that first story? A simple premise – two teams want Bart, the Teen Titans and the JLA. Which should he choose?

“My first issue, which is plenty new-reader friendly and self-contained, is, in part, about what it means to drop the ‘Kid’ from the ‘Flash.’ History pulls him towards the Titans, but tradition suggests League membership. I don't want to spoil much of the story, but Bart's decision won't have anything to do with either history or tradition. How's that for a tease?”

I disagree an adult Bart can work long as they remember he is Bart, not Wally. A good writer can help you accept stuff you might not like, remember Sir Mark Wiad got a lot of Barry Fans to accept Bart, so maybe another Mark can get US to accept Bart.
Honestly i am Biased to bart, and like him now if they can get him to act like Bark i am ll for it, or to atleast make him into some who is enough bartish they we can accept him as bart, and not a poor man';s wally clone.
Still i wish the new writer was Mark Waid or Todd Dezago (comics most under rated writer) but i will give the new guy a chnace, heck years a go i was asking who the heck is this Mark Waid guy, and the Flash made him into a superstar. so good luck to the new writer, trust me Me
and Ohoni and tons of others will let you know how you are doing.

Guys, it's been stated, even by the new writer - Bart will be the Flash (not Kid Flash, and not Impulse), and Bart will remain his present age (not deaged).

Time to move on

I barely give the new Flash book much thought most of the time. It's been going steadily downhill since Johns left the book. I might consider dropping it (More out of principle that I'm looking on dropping a few more books anyway)

Yes, and they said Jason Todd was dead and Hall Jordan was irredeemably psychotic (I'll ignore Batman's back being broken, and Superman's "death" as no one believed THEY would stick)

They've said what they're going to do, I reserve the right to say what I think they SHOULD do.
