THE FLASH: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON REVIEWED
“The Flash” makes its second year debut with a smash. After fighting the Atom Smasher, Barry Allen learns of the existence of Earth-2 and the greater Multiverse. When Earth-2 Flash (Jay Garrick) makes himself known, a larger world opens. Harrison Wells of Earth-2 is a good guy and puts the battle ahead into clear cut phrasing. Zoom exists to kill Speedsters and he awaits Barry. What is Zoom? Nothing more than the embodiment of all that’s evil about the Speed Force.
So much of this year was spent world building, as we had Arrow crossovers and groundwork established to launch “Legends of Tomorrow”. That being said, this level of expansion brings me a level of satisfaction that I never received from “Arrow”. The DC Cinematic Universe has squandered so much, so let’s get the bigger ideas on TV. Hell, they used the Bug Eyed Bandit last year. I never would’ve thought that would come to fruition.
While so much is promised to come next year, I’ve just been floored as a Flash fan. Knowing that the involvement of Geoff Johns supercharged so much, I’m excited to see what he can do for the DC film world. It’s an amazing time to be a mass media comic fan.

The Plot Thus Far
Last year, the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark matter storm that struck forensic scientist Barry Allen – bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive. But Barry wasn’t the only person who was given extraordinary abilities that night. The dark matter also created meta-humans – many of whom have wreaked havoc on the city. With the help of the S.T.A.R Labs team, Caitlin Snow, Cisco Ramon and Dr. Harrison Wells, Barry protects the people of Central City from these powerful new threats as The Flash. Following the defeat of Allen’s arch-nemesis Eobard Thawne (aka Reverse Flash), Team Flash must quickly turn their attention to the singularity swirling high above Central City, consuming everything in its path. Armed with the heart of a hero and the ability to move at super speeds, Barry charged into the eye of the singularity, but can he actually save his city from impending doom?
