Wally is Iris's nephew. And why would Barry be too young? I have cousins who are 15 years apart in age.

Green Arrow is famous for social commentary. Berlanti, where the hell is my social commentary? The Queen family needs to go broke ASAP, so I can finally get my left wing socialist superhero!
I was wondering if, during Slade's speech, they'd actually end the season with Ollie losing control of Queen Consolidated and the family going poor.

Which brings to mind two thoughts. First the serious one: it might be harder to pull off with Moira and Thea in the picture. Ollie was on his own when he lost his fortune and it only impacted him in the comics.

The not-so-serious one:

And now the story of a wealthy family who lost everything, and the one vigilante son who had no choice but to keep them all together… It's Arrow.

PS, the kid who plays The Flash is awesome.
Maybe it's the nostalgia talking, but I preferred John Wesley-Shipp. Then again, I liked that Barry more, I'm not a big fan of this younger Barry. Not that he's bad, but I preferred the 90's television take on the character.

And, since I just watched the episode, I'm a little late to chime in, but chime I will:

Not really. I was an uncle when I was ten. A good friend has a nephew that is two years older than she is.

All of this plus a few extra thoughts: First, all they need to say is that Iris has an older brother. Or maybe Iris is a few years older than Barry. Or both. Or maybe Iris's brother was a young father.

Second, if they do use Wally, there's no saying that he'll become Kid Flash early on in the series. Assuming it runs (pun, intended) for the same length as Smallville, Wally being 10 in the first season would have him being 14 by season 4.

The comics, at least as far as I know/remember, never said how old Wally was when he got the powers.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

I seem to recall stories where he is a preteen. I don't think he and the other sidekicks became teens until the Teen Titans debuted.

A full nephew, or half nephew? Must be the latter, right? Cause it not, then... wow.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Wasn't Dick 10 when his parents were killed? Preteen sounds about right. I doubt they'd go that young for a sidekick on the show, considering Roy seems to be early 20's and only a few years younger than Ollie himself.

I wouldn't mind if Wally was Iris's younger brother. I think that would work well and they could just explain that Wally and Iris's parents died, leaving and adult Iris to care for her younger brother.

You're assuming that the siblings are only a few years apart. It's not unheard of for a couple to have kids 10 or more years apart. Granted for the case of Misfit Toy's friend, you'd have to assume there is a wide gap between them and their sibling with a nephew.

Yeah, I knew somebody in high school whose sibling was born when we were seniors, so it's certainly possible.

Thea was not planed, and Bobby knew how to keep a cap in his pistol barrel.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Actually, shouldn't anyone working for Ras Al Ghul not be allowed to have children?

You'd think that anyone in his service would be gelded.

(In the comics he thinks that overpopulation is going to destroy the world and the only way the world is going to make it, is if he cuts that number in half.)

Yet he has two daughters and a room full of grandson clones.

That reminds me of the years of contradiction where death worshipper Thanos had a grand daughter named Nebula.

A belief that he only develops after the death of his wife when he has given up all hope on humanity at least according to O'Neil.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Locked in a coffin dangled down a well, nestling with her rotting corpse for X amount of time.

Antigregorious to say the least.

Nebula lied.

He was dead, and she lied.

Later he used the Infinity Gauntlet to upside down reality and make her his grand daughter afterall becuase Thanos has an excellent sense of humour.

Full. There's a 22 year gap between her and her sister. Her parents always told her that she was a pleasant surprise.

^ Yikes!

Oh, and hey, so Felicity's now monitoring every public sidewalk in the city with facial-recognition tech, eh? Remember when widespread public surveillance was a matter of debate between Batman and Fox? How quaint those days of yore...
