Convergence: Speed Force #1

Now that's more like it. After being horribly disappointed with Convergence: Batgirl #1 I was feeling less and less sure about DC's new big event centering on battles between previous versions of characters not found in the current New 52 DCU. Convergence: Speed Force #1 gives us Wally West back in action as the Flash and his kids Jai and Iris.

Like pretty much every Convergence tie-in issue, Speed Force #1 begins by offering us glimpses of the hero's life without powers after the city is transported by Brainiac. With the fall of the barrier the Flash and his kids take a run across the bizarre world coming across an assortment of odd characters including another speedster - Fastback!

Although I'm not sure I'm ready to see the Flash take on the Flashpoint version of Wonder Woman next issue, I am excited to see Wally and Fastback team-up. Unlike Convergence: Batgirl #1 this issue gets the feel of its characters right. (Plus I'm all in favor of throwing the Zoo Crew as much love as possible.) Worth a look.
