In the sixth issue of the Flash, we finally find out who Godspeed is, as the first arc comes to its near-climax.
I have really enjoyed Josh Williamson and Carmine De Giandomenico's take on Barry so far, and while the reveal was a bit predictable (I won't spoil it here), I also felt like it was earned.
I think it was a really smart move by the creative team to begin this new series with an arc that would be familiar to anyone watching the TV show. It's a simplified version of last season's TV storyline, and I actually think it works better than the show. The premise is the same--someone is killing speedsters and taking their speed. But instead of multiple earths, there is an event that gives ordinary people speed powers on Earth-1. Barry sees it as his personal responsibility to mentor and protect these new speedsters, so when they start dying at the hand s of Godspeed, finding out who the killer is becomes Barry's #1 priority.
So far this first arc has done a great job of balancing the home, work and superhero aspects of Barry's life, without any of them being given short shrift. Williamson and company are establishing a nice foundation with this arc, and I am really looking forward to seeing where things go from here.
