I LOL'd. Never has a costume gone from "looks great" to "fail" so quickly.
My thoughts exactly. I like the idea of an athletic suit with Savage Dragon's suggestion of golf ball dimples (i.e., turbulators), or textures with other applications, such as control surfaces, sooo much better.

I suspect we'll see some effects on the costume that will change the way it looks while he's running. This costume has some of the same seams as the New 52 version; and those light up like a yellow Tron character when he's running.

I like the suit, but I'm hoping that as the series progresses it will evolve into something a bit more familiar.
I like the suit fine, but somebody posted a photo of a speedskater a few pages back. Add some boots and a helmet and the "fixins" and that is really what Flash should look like IMO.

The CW has ordered the show to series.

I'm shocked! Not really... This is cool because The Flash is one of my favorite super-heroes. Hopefully it lasts longer than the first series...

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

I need to see Gorrilla Grodd eat someone.

Just walking around sucking on severed human limbs like they were lollypops.

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh.

Simon Baker (who is an Australian) as Captain Boomerang?

Not really, Boomerang is practically an Australian hillbilly even if it was still the 1970s.

Simon would still have to put on a silly accent to play the character.

I seriously doubt we are going to see Grodd picking his teeth with someone's femur. In fact I'm pretty sure we won't see Grodd at all.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

If the next Planet of the Apes movie makes 3 billion dollars (which is of course unlikely), I don't think that they could stop themselves.

Abra kadabra supposedly makes the Joker look like Mary Poppins.

Do you really think the CW will give them the budget to make a convincing talking Gorilla?

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

Are we seriously talking about Grodd as a possibility? Flash is being spun off from the initially realistic and grounded Arrow universe. They're expanding into technologically-induced superpowers now to accommodate the Flash spinoff, but I doubt they'll go too far into fantasy.

Although I wouldn't totally rule out a story about, say, someone genetically engineering a superintelligent gorilla who turns out to be malevolent -- but who speaks in sign language rather than English. In fact, I could've sworn I'd already seen that done on an episode of Lois and Clark or Superboy or something, but Wikipedia doesn't mention it.

I certainly was't seriously talking about Grodd as a possibility. I agree with you that they will want to keep the show as grounded and realistic as possible.

Kilg%re could work if they give it a more earthbound origin.

I recognize the name but I am very hazy on the details. He showed up in the Wally West Flash run, right?

Edit: Never mind. I found it.

That would be on AMC's The Flash.
