Comic Book Resources has a preview of Flash #8 by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato, due in stores this week.
The Flash gets pulled into the Speed Force that gives him his super-speed powers…and he learns he’s not alone in there! Introducing Turbine, a prisoner of the Speed Force who just wants out – even if it means trading places with The Flash!
Lia points out on Twitter, “So Turbine spins and his name is Roscoe? Uh huh.” Indeed, that sounds strangely familiar…
I WAS EXICTED FOR THIS GUY
BUT YOU DO NOT JUST REPLACE ROSCOE LIKE THAT, NO. UNACCEPTABLE.
UNLESS ROSCOE IS POSSESSING HIM??
Well, I’m just going to be the unpopular opinion person this time… Feel free to unfollow me if you get pissed. 8T
Turbine, honestly, before I knew his name (real name) looked like a meh villain to me. Maybe it was because I didn’t know what he would be like from only one cover but I thought that he would be making tornadoes like Riptide. Which looking back I should have seen the connection to Top.
So finding out that his name was Roscoe was more exciting to me than pissed. The Top has been dead for YEARS before he came back to life and then died again. I do not deny that he has been a big part of comics with the whole issue with him twisting the minds of the Rogues. So seeing him possibly being transformed into a pilot from WWII? I’m interested. Its Top with powers coming from the speed force!
So yea, is he actually the Top? Maybe. I’m still buying the issue to see for myself. Its not like he can’t get whisked into modern times with Barry. Then he can meet up with Lisa and she can teach him about modern society and he can help her recover. Then all the Lisa and Roscoe feels are solved.
