The Legion of Zoom is the first truly highly anticipated Flash story since Flash War, Joshua Williamson’s farewell tour is set to be a huge one and this issue has really got the gears turning in what’s sure to be a game changing event.
Following the events of the previous issue, where Reverse-Flash’s new Legion of Zoom simultaneously attacked various sections of Barry Allen’s life, #758 followed how The Flash dealt with the blow.
Williamson continues to do a really good job at making this event feel different. It feels special and like Central City will never be the same. Reverse-Flash is at his most menacing right now, thus making this tale an extremely intriguing one.
The book really highlighted the dynamic between the newly formed Legion of Zoom and demonstrated the tensions building between the group, something which is likely to play apart further down the line.
The reintroduction of the Tornado Twins was an exciting, yet heartbreaking one. The Flash’s upcoming battle with his offspring is likely to really throw Barry into turmoil and will be a huge cause of conflict going forward. Something everyone should look forward to.
The conclusion of the book, which saw Reverse-Flash take over The Flash’s body, leaving Barry trapped in a strange new dimension, left the book on a great cliffhanger and sets up what will be a hugely exciting next issue.
Also the art, while a world away from what has been used throughout Williamson’s run so far, was gorgeous and felt fresh compared to what we’ve seen in the past.
If the rest of Legion of Zoom plays out like the first couple of issues, we’re in for one hell of a treat and Joshua Williamson will depart his role on The Flash with a bang.
