The CW has just released a new teaser for the second season of The Flash. The Flash is the spin-off series to the popular show, Arrow. The show of course revolves around the popular DC hero The Flash and stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash. The first season revolved around collecting “meta humans” who gained superpowers after a particle accelerator explosion, this lead to the building of Flash’s rogue gallery. But the news here today is the teaser for the second season, which most importantly features a new character, Jay Garrick.
Die hard comic book fans know that name since he is “The Original Flash”. In the comics, Barry Allen is not the first Flash, in fact Jay Garrick has been running around since Barry was a child. After the lightning strike that gave Barry his powers, he decided to use the persona of his childhood hero, The Flash.
But if you saw the first season, you know none of that is true in the show. So how does Jay Garrick suddenly show up as The Original Flash in this series? Well the title of this teaser, Other World, gives that away. Garrick mentions that there are other worlds out there, so it seems to finally be bringing the multiple universes that have dominated comics for so many years.
We can’t wait to see what season 2 has in store and to finally see what the multiverse can do for this world. Also, if you haven’t seen season 1 you are really missing out, so do yourself a favor and go binge it.
