Via Variety, Jordan Fisher has been cast as Bart Allen a.k.a. Impulse. And though, In the comics, Bart is the grandson of Barry and Iris. On the TV series, Bart will be Barry and Iris’ son. WHAT WHAT! (Arriving on or about episode 17)
According to The CW’s description, Bart is “‘the fastest teenager on the planet.’ However, due to his penchant for ‘wildly impulsive behavior,’ Barry and Iris will have their hands full trying to teach him patience — which will be a necessity if they want to succeed, not only as a family unit, but also in stopping the biggest threat to the Flash yet.”
And while this is the great news that most comic book fans have been waiting for. WHAT HAPPENED TO WALLY WEST, KID FLASH?
Wally is Joe’s son, iris’ brother, and kinda Barry’s step brother/brother-in-law. So, if they’re talking about the West-Allen family unit, they need to explain his absence, or bring him back. (But don’t kill him!) If the actor doesn’t want to come back, tell us his character is on another earth, or he’s in the future. Just tell us something y’all.
