Ep.196 – The Flash Vol. 2 No. 131 (1997)

Emergency Stop, Part 2: Threads

Jan 31, 2022

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée slip on some Speed Force and crash right into Flash no. 131! Replacement Flash Wally West has wrecked his legs fighting a living suit that sucks up people's energy and leaves them as withered husks (also known as getting dressed for work, amirite!?). For a guy whose main advantage is moving really fast, this is gonna be an issue. Maybe he can try using his words to solve conflicts for once instead of just running all over everything, hmm? Since a civil resolution seems out of the question, Wally pulls together a collection of lesser speedsters to get themselves killed in his place so that he can show up with a game-winning suckerpunch and take all the credit. It's called playing four-dimensional chess, and you ain't checkmating the Flash, suckers!
