We witnessed Psych’s fate at the hands of the Black Flash at the end of last issue. We’re brought straight into Flash bringing his body back to HQ for Commander Cold to examine. Finding out that the Speed Force has grown stronger due to the death of another force user.

However, Hunter Zolomon shows up and attacks Steadfast after Iris shows up to talk to Barry about Wally, and his actions that took place in Flash Forward #1. Zolomon takes off with Steadfast, but the Black Flash is on his trail.

We see the rogues confront Golden Glider, whose chosen to help abused children skate – Captain Cold convinces her to join their escapade. We see them march out ready to play out their plan, Lexcorp arsenal in hand. Unfortunately for Kid Flash and Avery decide it’s time to stop going after B-listers and head for the main rogues.

Williamson is on top of his game as always and his art team makes every panel cinematic and eye catching. A solid issue in this fantastic arc.
