NRAMA: So are we talking about Barry Allen?
DD: All I can say is that it looks like someone DC fans may know and who has definite ties to a major event which occurred within Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Most people are drawing the conclusion that it is Barry, but like Grant and Geoff, I’m not at liberty to reveal, because all the whats, hows and whos are played out in Final Crisis. But I will say that, in his storytelling, Geoff has alluded to the fact that Barry will return three times in Wally’s life when things are most dire. You know what? Things aren’t going to get that much more dire than we see then in Final Crisis.
For this to be the Final Crisis story that will help to define and refocus the DC Universe, I’ve always felt that Flash is an integral character and one of the primary characters of the DC Universe, and it’s important to have the Flash front and center.
