They always say that patience is the mother of all the virtues but this time, it seems we're finally getting what we were promised : our Flash, Wally West, is back in the game, and he's not alone !
Iris West II, the Kid Flash of the Kingdom Come universe, and the coolest Flash from the Chain Lightning saga, is also joining the party, ready to fight some multiversal threats
Back in march, Scott Snyder was kind enough to reveal Wally would be one of the major players in his last event, Death Metal. As you can see from Greg Capullo's art, our Flash is confirmed to appear in Death Metal #2, and if that wasn't good enough, he is no longer sitting on the Moebius Chair.
This is something Snyder also revealed in a live stream : in a Death Metal spin-off, Wally would be back on his feet, running alongside Jay and Barry. Now it's official, since DC released the solicitation for Dark Knights : Death Metal : Speed Metal #1. We also have a panel teasing Wally's return in the DC Universe, thanks to Eddy Barrows, who gives his take on Wally's powerful reunion with Jai and Irey.
But none of us expected to see the whole West family in this event. Snyder and his partner in crime, James Tynion IV, also brought back Wally's daughter in Dark Nights: Death Metal: Multiverse's End #1.
These two one-shots will be released in September, but Death Metal begins this 6/16, so make sure to get your copy at your LCS.

- Perpetua, mother of all existence, has culled all life and creation in the Multiverse, condensing all beings to one planet: Earth Prime. In her quest for power and dominance, she rules absolutely and in totality, using her children—the Monitors and Anti-Monitors—as her heralds and destructors. But a group of heroes has banded together across multiple worlds in a last-ditch effort to stop her from destroying all of existence: Owlman, President Superman, Iris West, Captain Carrot, Guy Gardner and others choose to make their final stand in a battle they’re destined to lose!
