Green Arrow #26

Green Arrow #26 comic reviewFramed for murder by the Ninth Circle, Oliver Queen hits the road to prove his innocence. This leaves Seattle in the capable hands of Ollie’s friends. Taking its name from Dennis O’Neil and Neal Adams’ famous run (minus the social commentary), part one of “Hard Traveling Hero” catches up to Green Arrow on the road where his investigation crosses paths with another member of the Justice League: the Flash.

Despite the continued use of the awful costume redesign (seriously, this yellow piping has to go), it’s fun to see the Flash here. DC Rebirth keeps to the DCU’s history in that despite both being close friends with Hal Jordan, neither character gets along that well with the other.

The Flash - Finish Line television review

Immediately following Savitar killing Iris (Candice Patton), the Third Season finale opens with a big twist, and it won’t be the episode’s last. The good news for Team Flash is that Iris is alive and Savitar’s plan has failed. The good news for the show is a tremendous weight has been lifted off of Barry‘s (Grant Gustin) shoulders and we see a more hopeful and less brooding version of the character throughout the episode, even in the face of an emotional sacrifice to close out the episode. There’s a calm to Barry we haven’t seen in quite some time which serves both the character and the season finale well. Let’s hope this continues in to next season.

The Flash - Infantino Street TV review

Despite Barry Allen‘s (Grant Gustin) initial belief that he could rewrite the future he glimpsed months ago, much of the Third Season of The Flash has had a hopeless vibe (so to speak). “Infantino Street” is the inevitable conclusion of these events. The day of Iris‘ (Candice Patton) death finally arrives, and despite bringing in Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) for a theft inside A.R.G.U.S., the existence of the speed bazooka, and Barry refusing to learn too much about his friend’s plan to stop Savitar, he episode never sells us on the idea that Iris has any chance of walking out alive. Because of this the episode’s final scene is anti-climactic, especially after giving us the return of both Captain Cold and King Shark before seemingly going through the motions concerning the fate of Barry’s fiance.
