after reading the Rebirth issues, i have come to the conclusion that they may be trying to pass him off as pre-flashpoint Wally West, but after reading Titans: Rebirth this week...there is no way hes that wally.
He claims to have been "outside of time", but his age, his memories, have both been as affected by the changes as everyone else .Not commenting on the different style of costumes, or titans line-ups, is a huge glaring hole in the idea that this wally is from before the flashpoint.
Lots of other discrepancies, like Meras clothes, unexplained Captain Atom, and when certain storylines take place, are really bugging me about this non-reboot reboot. I hope in time atleast some of these things are rectified.
Really liked Batman #1...I think Gotham is gonna be cool.
Gotham and his sidekick are going to be villains...otherwise they remove the need for Batman
Gotham is FULL of street level vigilantes that aren't magically surplus just because Batman exists.
Having a Superman-esque character(s) capable of dealing with stuff outside of Batman's wheelhouse again doesn't remove a need for Batman.
That said, they likely are villains and will be defeated and leave in short order but still!
