CA_FlashRecap1

Welcome back to Up To Speed, home of the the Flashest Recaps Alive.

This week, we’re looking at the fourteenth episode of the first season, “Fallout.” This episode has everything: professors eating pizzas, armed Army guys, fissured Firestorms, phosphorous Flashes, and investigative Irises. Oh, and a grumpy gorilla for goofs and giggles. Onward, Flashers!

Welcome back to Up To Speed, home of the the Flashest Recaps Alive. Here we’ll recap the episode, dispense some Flash Facts and talk about what works, what doesn’t and where the series might be headed, as we try and keep up with the adventures of the fastest man alive, Barry Allen, more widely known as The Flash.

This week, we’re looking at the lucky thirteenth episode of the first season, “The Nuclear Man.” In this episode, you'll meet desperate housewives, (literally) blazin' hot hunks, hormonal metahumans, and a kennel full of dead puppies.

‘The Flash’ Season 1 Recap, Episode 8: ‘Flash Vs. Arrow’

CA_FlashRecapS01E08

the latest episode of The Flash, but this week we're doing something a little different. This is the week the show crosses over with Arrow, so our usual Pointed Commentary recapper, Matt Wilson, will take a look at this one emerald archer style!

This week, Barry gets possessed by the underwhelming powers of the Rainbow Raider, Arrow shows up and is as big a jerk as ever, and the dialogue gets meta as all get out.

Here’s The Thing, Episode 21: A Brief History Of Firestorm [Video]

HTT21

If our weekly Ask Chris column isn't enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here's The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he dives into comics history to explain why you're wrong and he's right.

This week, a few viewers write in to ask about the history of Firestorm, a relatively obscure DC Comics character who was most prominent in the 1980s. As you may already know, obscure DC characters from the '80s are Chris's entire jam, which sends him on a long explanation of who Firestorm is and how he came to be, from the DC Implosion to Brave and the Bold.

Raymond is (or, technically, is one-half) of the sometimes-Justice Leaguer Firestorm.
