So, recently, I done a poll regaurding the succession of Grant gustin. The options were black wally, ginger wally, anyone but wally, or grant can never be replaced. Most complained or rather pointed out, having another wally is pointless and replacing a black character with a white one is a bit messy, which was all true. And then I thought on it.
Wally has already been established on the flash as a black kid flash based on the new 52 version. He was introduced in season 2 and was kid flash in season 3. He then whent through personal problems in real life and decided to only make guest appearences, claiming "he will always come when wally is needed most."
In the comics, ginger wally was the silver age kid flash and original wally. Nephew to Iris west and being the litteral age of a kid, he served as Barrys sidekick until Crisis on Infinite Earths when Barry perished and Wally picked up the mantle. He became a well known flash over the years, even being in the Justice Leauge cartoon masterpices. He mastered the speer force and even became faster than barry.
So previously I posted a discussion on how ginger wally could be introduced, with him being from Earth 90 and having Earth Prime Barry train him to take up the mantle of earth 90 flash, and eventually Earth Prime Barry.
This is why:
Now, he needs to be introduced. But, I am just stating: HE IS NOT REPLACING CURRENT WALLY. He is a fan favorite character eho could have his classic, cocky personality to mirror the comics and take up raphs spot on Team Flash. The actor of black wally does not want to be a series regular on the flash, so the cw can find someone who can be a consisteant cast member like cisco and iris. This means we have a kid flash to stay more than 1 season in the cowl.
Now, those were just some examples. But here is probably the most important reason.
Like Arrow, Flash will inevitably end at some point. Grant loves playing Barry but will probably quit some time near seaon 10, 11 or 12, like smallville. But what if the cw does what they done with arrow? (Or at least tried to do).
In season 7, we were introduced with Mia Smoak, who became the new Green Arrow and Oliver's successor, Mia Queen. What if when flash ends, we got another spin off series like Green Arrow and the Canneries, something that follows wallys journey as The Flash succeeding Grant gustin and carrying the legacy. And, we cant just intoduce him a season before the final season, cw, we need him soon so viewers can bond with him. We did not get enough time with Mia, as people already say, "Mia is unworthy of Olivers Chair". When Woaly takes the mantle, veiwers need to say "Wally has earned his place in the Justice League".
So that is why, please do comment down bellow with your thoughts and ideas regaurding this. I think this needs to happen what do you think?
So New Earths, new continuity, Ginger Wally could be the Kid Flash of New Earth 90. He comes to Barry to train him to become the flash of earth 90 and take up 90s Barry Allen's place. Barry trains him in season 7, and at the end have ginger Wally become flash of earth 90. Who likes the Idea?
