"Flash in the Pan"

There are no spoiler warnings. I can't even begin to fathom the situation where if you read comic books and are one the Internet and haven't heard the news by now - that DC Comics is bringing back to life the deceased Flash.

A scan from the last page of the just-released DC Universe #0.

DC Universe Zero

Whoo hoo --- Impulse/Kid Flash is back!!! Kudos to DC for the nice bait-and-switch, especially planting those rumors in the mainstream media.

Also, as based upon the below scanned page from the same title -- DC Comics is evidently going to be launching a comic book based on The 300 which I'm sure comes as a surprise to Dark Horse Comics. Or maybe the two companies are going to launch a crossover one-shot Wonder Woman vs. The 300.

The 300

I really hope that people do know that in
The Battle of Thermopylae, the Spartans did wear armor, moreover their armor was superior to those worn by the Persians, and that Frank Miller took creative license by portraying them as fighting naked -- an interesting but historically inaccurate depiction. But kudos to DC Comics for continuing to foster this falsehood and misconception.

The last person who died and remained dead in comics is coming back to life. It's a sign of the comics apocalypse.
