Fantastic Five: Best Comic Book Reboots

reboot fives

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

With a heavily anticipated and equally hyped reboot (or de-boot? or lateral-move-boot?) debuting this week, we thought we'd take a look at comics' frequent tendency to hit the reset button, with a specific focus on times when things turned out, you know, pretty okay! Whether it was because a certain character or story was in particularly dire straits and needed a mulligan, or because time and hindsight allowed an already good idea to be refined, these five examples show that dramatically reconfiguring a comics series is not always necessarily a bad thing.

Mezco’s One:12 Collective Taps Into the Speed Force for The Flash


This year is not going to be a great year for my savings account. There are just too many incredible collectibles on the way, and I never learned self-control when it came to buying things I wanted. I guess things like Mezco's One:12 Collective will prove valuable in other ways, such as helping me lose weight since I won't be able to afford to eat in order to keep up with my horrible toy habit.

I've written fairly extensively about Mezco's One:12 Collective and the promise it holds over the past year. With each new reveal of an upcoming character or license, the 6" series grows stronger. This year's Toy Fair showed a number of stunning new pieces that would shine on any shelf in any collection. That's definitely true with The Flash here, who will be joining the DC Comics portion of the line next week.

The Flash Goes To Jail, Goes Directly To Jail In ‘The Flash’ #50 [Preview]

Flash #50, DC Comics

I believe pretty firmly that Barry Allen should be locked up in a jail, but if we're being honest with each other, that's less because of anything he's done and really just comes down to the fact that I grew up in the '90s and have a pretty strong attachment to Wally West. But even though they might not agree with my reasoning, the Central City Police Department certainly agrees with my conclusions.

When Flash #50 hits shelves next week, it's opening with the Flash being arrested --- and he's being brought in by the Rogues.

Why Did ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Drug One of Its Heroes Into Joining the Team?

‘Legends of Tomorrow’ got off to a strong start with last night’s premiere, but one moment from the series debut seemed to stick out as especially ill-devised. Namely, why the hell did ‘Legends’ think it necessary for Victor Garber’s Professor Martin Stein to drug and kidnap his Firestorm partner into joining the mission, and how in the world did the others laugh that off?

DC stars of The CW have often found themselves walking thin lines against the cinematic Justice League’s decision to reboot continuity with different actors, as Stephen Amell has defended multiple comments on taking Arrow to the big screen, or DC announcing Ezra Miller’s Flash within days of The CW premiere. Now, Grant Gustin himself is in the hot seat, defending accusations of decrying Miller’s Barry Allen.

Reverse-Flash Will Flash Back to ‘The Flash,’ And Not in Flashback

Flash Season 2 Reverse Flash Returns Matt Letscher
The CW

Flash big bads can be a little difficult to keep up with (hardy-har), hopping back hundreds of years in time and changing their appearance, or speeding between dimensions on a whim, but at least one of Barry Allen’s biggest rogues will make a major Season 2 return. The Reverse-Flash will officially zoom back to Central City, but in which form, and why?

The Flash Season 2 never quite wound up a full trailer the way Arrow opted for Season 4, but has still afforded plenty of looks at its new adventures. That said, a new promo offers the most tantalizing tidbit yet, as we finally get a look at “demon speedster” big bad Zoom, as voiced by Tony Todd himself.
