Flash to be next Dr. Manhattan

Turns out that there will be a classic DC character who will either become the world’s greatest hero or perhaps become the worst threat the DCU has ever seen. This character would apparently take powers of Doctor Manhattan.

The story comes as a post-script to the current Flash Foward miniseries from writer Scott Lobdell and artist Brett Booth, and it’s Wally West who is going to get a fancy new coat of blue.

Wally West was also the Flash

Wally along with his wife and kids were taken out of existence by 2011’s The New 52 relaunch and then brought back to existence as part of DC Universe: Rebirth #1 in 2015.

Later, in 2019 he was unintentionally transformed into a mass murderer behind the events of Heroes in Crisis.

Meanwhile, Doctor Manhattan gave his powers to a child in the Watchmen universe. But it turns out he was not able to give away all of his powers.

These new powers could possibly make Willey the biggest threat to DCU or perhaps the biggest asset

It all starts here, and everything counts.”
