Back in 1990 when John Wesley Shipp suited up to be a TV version of The Flash, his costume looked exactly like something out of the comic books of the time. It also looked downright impossible to run in.

Wally West Makes His DC Comics New 52 Debut In April

Wally West The Flash

When DC Comics launched its New 52 initiative in 2011, rebooting and updating the entire DC Universe, it meant making a number of big changes, from dissolving Superman's marriage to Lois Lane to Barbara Gordon's return as Batgirl.
