So, iFanboy has exclusive art showing how Barry Allen’s costume comes out of the Flash ring in the new DC Universe (I suspect this may be from the new Flash #1), and… I have no idea what’s happening in those images. His costume not only seems to be entirely modular – which, I guess, makes more sense than the old costume, which seemed to be all one piece with the only opening the mask, which always made me wonder whether Barry had to climb in through there at superspeed, thankful that no-one could see him looking so ridiculous -but also seems to… change shape and attach itself on him? Somehow? Is it like armor? Is it like Wally’s old Speed Force suit, and that’s how it can change shape? Is it made of unstable molecules?
I can’t help but wonder whether, as cool as this art is – and it really is – it’s one of those things that Jack Kirby once described as “Don’t ask! Just buy it!”
