Synopsis for "Flash Forward: Epilogue"

Wally West now sits on the Mobius Chair, with the power of absolute knowledge flowing through him. He retraces his whole history, from the time he met the Flash and became Kid Flash, to forming the Titans with Dick, Donna and Garth, and then taking the mantle of the Flash from his mentor, after he died in the first crisis. And the end: his family, ripped away from him and from reality.

With his sacrifice, with accepting his role as the one to sit on the Chair, he saved his family, who now once again lives. But not only his history unfolds before him: all the crisis, flashpoints, rebirths, everything is made clear to him. He knows the history of the Multiverse, from start to finish. And he knows of the intervention of an atomic god from another universe altogether, a god who wanted to toy and experiment with reality. Wally then starts watching time, and while he is watching, it changes in an instant: the Justice Society of America and the Legion of Super-Heroes both came back to their places in time, one in the past and one in the future.

He understands that reality and time, somehow, are unaligned. And so he starts from what he knows: his own history. He watches his first meeting with Barry Allen, the Flash, and sees it happening twice, in different but similar ways. In one, there is no Wallace West together with him, in the other there is. A moment happening in different realities, but developing in a way which is almost identical. And he can remember both of them, feeling both of them as right and wrong at the same time.

And another anomaly presents in his past: this time is the same event, happening in the same universe but in a different time. First, the foundation of the Teen Titans by Dick Grayson, then the exact same thing, but done by Tim Drake. Still, the people taking part in that event are mirror images of one another. And the second incarnation has no memory of the first, thinking themselves the original Teen Titans, while they never were. And keeping his analysis, Wally discovers that events like this are not rare to happen.

For some reason, reality and time do not work together anymore. They are unaligned. And so, Wally West reaches Tempus Fuginaut, and tells him he found out what he couldn't see by himself: time and reality are in shambles, with existence on the verge of collapsing. Tempus is afraid: can he do something about it? But Wally reassures him that with his new powers, he can.

Notes

  • The ending of Flash Forward: Epilogue advertises Generation Zero coming in May but unfortunately due to the 2020 pandemic the comic was delayed to a later date. However, part of Generation Zero did come out in the trade paperback of Flash Forward, which would also tie-in to Dark Nights: Death Metal.

The story At the Starting Line.., does reference the story Brave Old World from Wonder Woman Vol 1 750 that was intended to be part of the original plan for Generations.

  • "The Flash Age, Part 1" is reprinted in The Flash: The Flash Age.
