Kriss & Dpalm are back to discuss Wally West, the third person to take the mantle of the Flash. While the focus has been on Barry Allen recently, we talk about how Wally West was THE Flash for many of us growing up and how important he is. We talk about the similarities and differences between Flash and Batman. How Flash's rogue gallery is up there with Spider-Man and Batman in terms of being the best and most dangerous. We also go over some key issues involving Wally and what makes them so good.
