    No offense taken. And nothing wrong being Comic Book Guyish... they are a knowledgeable and passionate lot. :)

    I disagree about the yellow..... especially if you make a much darker shade. Perhaps "black" with yellow highlights as opposed to "blue". (Just sayin'. )

    And with them have energy that is "reverse" of each other, they'd definitely be attracted to one another (in physics sense not physical/love sense!). Looking forward to seenig how that plays out!

    I hope it looks great.

    But I dug the old one because it immediately let you onto the threat. It didn't scream villainy, actually. It was just weird. Like "what the hell's wrong with the Flash?" It was thoroughly simple but the opposite of generic. You knew which book to read immediately if you wanted to see more of him.

    "The opposite of red is not yellow. It will also be a lot darker. It will probably be a lot closer to what you would imagine a Reverse-Flash would be rather than just a yellow version of Barry Allen."
    So... Rival's costume, then?

    Maybe it's the Turtle. That's kind of exactly what I imagine a Reverse Flash looking like.

    That's fine, but the reason they give is that yellow isn't supposed to be the opposite of red, as if that was supposed to be idea of the costume.

    How about Captain Frye for the Reverse Flash? I keep getting the feeling that he is the one that murdered Barry's mother (as the detective on the case, he certainly would be in a position to tamper with the evidence and make it look like someone else did it).

    I'm really hoping this creative team can salvage Reverse Flash, even if it's by making him an entirely new character.

    I guess this will be ok. Just as long as he doesn't have the same powers as the last Reverse Flash. I don't really want to see the possibility for another Flashpoint.

    Reverse flash is one of my least favorite villains, so i think I'll be dropping the title for a while.

    Not even the same guy bro. Overreacting. Think of it as a new villain.

    There are only two possibilities : Doctor Elias or Danny West.
    And either one is totally cool with me.

    Sounds like it'll be good. Can't wait to see the design.

    I hope you stay on board with the series.

    I also thought that past interviews came across in that manner, but I take you at your word that it was not your intent. Accordingly, I will probably jump back on with issue #17.

    I am curious as to the "mandates". In early interviews there was talk or implication of an Iris/Barry/Patty triangle, but it has never really materialized...I wonder if a "mandate" ended that. I'm still with team Iris.

    Yeah I can't say I've ever liked either incarnation of Reverse-Flash. Zolomon was kind of interesting, but still dumb. Can't stand Eobard.

    Well Eobard was a pretty standard mustache twirler with a good visual. I had no real problems with him, but he wasn't really that interesting of a character to me.

    Zolomon was a good attempt at giving Reverse Flash a different sort of motivation but it never quite worked for me.

    So here is hoping that they will get it right this time.
