Default Wally's new costume

Let me be the first to say "great job." I had my fears, but they were totally unfounded. I think this is one costume that will stick around for a long time, unlike the ever-changing costumes of Wally's contemporaries and fellow legacies such as Dick, Roy, Donna, and Kyle. You can tell it was designed for fans of the character, fans who know him as the Flash.
 
As promised, tapping out.

Thanks Ethan. The first thing that came to mind to me seeing it is Walter West's costume especially how Wally's new mask looks. Love the costume though. Appears he will still go by Flash.

I like it. I wish they went a little further towards the Dark Flash costume. They already went this far after all.

I love it too. Even better than Barrys or Wallys old ones. Just something about it jumps at me. Love the JLU logo too. Can't wait to see other artists interpetaions of it too. ESPECIALLY Scott Kolins.

I know DoE likes it, but I'm still unsure about the 'batman cowl' on Wally.
One thing though that is nice is that it does add that small extra touch to distinguish it from Barry without being a complete overhaul, especially if there's ever a panel with just their heads, there's no question who is Barry and who is Wally.

And I loved this double page spread.

Also, when did Bart's costume revert to a more 'classic' design, I just noticed the funky boots are gone.

Coming out of F:Rb, it will be interesting to how the various monthly artist interpret these suits.

Honestly, my first thought (after drooling over it) was that I'm really excited to see what Scott Kolins does with it, especially coloring-wise because he never seemed to play up the shinier aspects of the Flash costume.

This looks really cool! A great new costume for Wally that is similar to what he wore in the 90's, but definitely better. This gives us a clear cut way of telling Barry and Wally apart.

I like that Wally's costume is bit more different, but was honestly hoping it would be even more distinguishable. But I guess I'll take what I can get here. This gives me hope that Wally is at least still A Flash.

I think what I miss the most out of the Dark Flash costume is the silver.
