Rest in peace, Bart

So, I wonder, did I kill the Flash?

Not just me, of course, but all the readers like me who lost interest in the adventures of Bart Allen, the latest Flash. He took over as the scarlet speedster last year in the aftermath of “Infinite Crisis,” and I was just never able to get into his adventures. For one thing, I didn’t like his rapid aging; I missed the younger, more impulsive Bart.

This week Bart died a hero’s death. Maybe it was the plan after all, but I doubt it. Meanwhile, another Flash, Wally West, returned this week in “Justice League of America.” It’s good to see Wally back, but I wish they hadn’t killed poor Bart.
