Flash Family being adorable.

Check out what’s coming out over the next two weeks!

Excited for Justice League War Flash and Earth-2 Jay (even if I wasn’t fond of the book), but I’ve hated that damn Michael Turner statue every time it’s been released, and now is no exception.

I mean, look at it! It’s hideous! Michael Turner never had a sense for anatomy, especially that of a runner. Flash doesn’t even look like he could get through a normal-sized doorway with those linebacker shoulders. I’ve got the Turner-designed Flash action figure, and it’s shoulders are easily an inch wider than every other figure in my collection.

Flash Family rec list

So, hey! The Flash family, huh? They had a good run (thanks for nothing, DC), but just because the majority of them are no longer around doesn’t mean that their stories of old are any less enjoyable. So here am I to present to you, a rec list for those who ride the lightning. I’ll provide links where I can, and where I can’t, well, maybe if you check this post at a later date, I’ll have found them.

While many of these characters appear in each other’s books (especially during the 90s), I’m going to try and isolate key issues, or issues I personally found particularly interesting, especially for characters that were used to headlining their own books for years.

Please keep in mind that I’m probably going to be leaving some stuff out, as the Flash is a legacy that spans decades longer than I’ve been alive. But I’ll try to do the best I can.

Also! While there have been many instances of the Flash in animated and live-action television, this list is just going to be focusing on the comic book aspect. Sorry, JLU and Young Justice fans.

That should about do it! As you can see, the Flash family has done a lot, and that’s just the stuff I can remember off the top of my head. A special thanks to those who took the time and effort to actually put stuff on Mediafire and the like, for us poor slobs to download.

All speedster in DC!!!


I don’t want to nitpick because holy cow look at all these precious babies and you even remembered John and Dani, but there are a few other speedsters in the DCU:

Joanie Swift, a golden age speedster who accidentally used Johnny Quick’s speed formula while typing it up. She was only seen once because Johnny hid which formula gave her speed.

The Rival, the golden age reverse Flash.

Doralla Kon, a silver age speedster lady from another dimension who only had two appearances, but they were both really good because they were less HOLY CRAP A GIRL WITH SPEED BETTER SHUT THAT DOWN like Joanie’s only story was, and more holy crap! She’s also a scientist, I made a new friend! I personally believe Doralla’s positive portrayal in the 60s paved the way for lady speedsters like Jesse and Jenni in the 90s.

Blue Trinity and Red Trinity, speedster teams from Russia. Christina was part of Blue Trinity.

Speed Demon, a scientist whose wife cheated on him with Wally West back in the 80s.

Sela Allen, who has the coolest design of any speedster ever. She’s a conscious manifestation of the Speed Force.

Impulse II, another Speed Force energy being from the far future.

Black Flash, who is literally speedster Death.

Trajectory, a precious fridged lady who appeared in 52.

I know there are some more, but I can’t remember them right now.

I’ve always dreamed of doing this!



It could be any one of them though.





Welcome to the Flash Museum, everybody.

This is my Flash collection. I’ve got action figures, clothing, statues, stickers, wallets, plush toys, licensed goods, unlicensed, fan-made goods, Angry Birds that look like the Flash, you name it. 

If you’ve got any questions about my collection, or want to know what a particular item is, feel free to drop a message in my inbox.

I am clearly a crazy person.

Hey, who remembers that time Linda Park died and her boyfriend took it so hard that he raced Death to the end of creation…

and brought her back?
