And, lest we forget, the whole concept of a multi-verse in comics was spawned in the classic "Flash of Two Worlds" story in The Flash #123, back in 1961.
Speaking of, Tuesday sees the season premier of The Flash as it enters its sophomore year. And, look who shows up:
Last season was the most fun I had watching any one TV show. Maybe it's not as intricate and adult as Mad Men or The Americans, but it does exactly what I want a Flash TV show to do - be super weird, have lots of fun twists and turns, use super speed in new ways all the time, and make Barry Allen an all right kind of guy.
They threw everything at the wall last season, and it mostly worked. Now we see what happens when they don't just worry about time-travel, they worry about the multiverse. Let's hope this isn't the season where they drop the ball.
Here's some posters:
