The comic-book nerds are very excited about the reboot of DC comics, there has been an unwritten consensus among fans that although the DC universe is wonderful and captivating but something is missing, the same feeling is shared by longtime DC comics writer turned Chief creative officer Geoff Johns who steered this initiative after getting the studio bosses on board.
This is not the first time that there has been a “rebirth” event, New 52 was a major relaunch and revamp of comics in 2011, but it didn’t really go anywhere and lost its direction. The underlying idea is to explore new themes, chart new territory, bring new people into the DC bandwagon and connect it with DC Cinematic universe. He said it in an interview with CBR:
“If you look at the new Star Wars [The Force Awakens] — it’s kind of a rebirth, right? It goes back to the classic tropes of Star Wars, but it introduces new characters. New threats. It has the spirit of Star Wars, it feels like a Star Wars movie. Probably the first Star Wars movie that’s felt like a Star Wars movie in a long, long time. That’s a perfect example of what I think “Rebirth” is — a celebration, but it doesn’t mean we’re just going backwards. It’s an echo of the past, but looking to the future. That’s what I want to do with this.”
Flash Rebirth is one of the many significant events in DC Comics universe. The Pre- New 52 Kid Flash has returned after a long time, the classic version of Wally West. The new villain is the Godspeed who is one of the most dangerous adversary ever. Barry Allen has a new partner in CCPD who is struck by the speed force, he was investigating his brother’s murder which had something to do with the criminal organization called Black Hole.
Here’s hoping for a new and improved DC universe. CHEERS!!
