Joshua Williamson’s Flash Volumes 4 – 6: The Evil That is Eobard Thawne
We promised 2 episodes in March and we're squeezing it right in there at the 11th hour. But we're back for the next set of issues from the Joshua Williamson Flash run. We first stop over at Batman and pick up with The Button which takes us closer to understanding the forces behind all the lost time and history in the DC Universe. But it also reminds us that Eobard Thawne is the epitome of evil. The way he beats Bruce's ass in the Batcave is a good reminder that speed beats prep time. It's not just the Button though. After being largely absent in the first three volumes, Thawne features heavily in the next set of volumes for The Flash. And ends up dying...twice. If the first three volumes were a reintroduction of Barry Allen, these next set of volumes are a reminder of why Eobard Thawne is one of the scariest and evil villains in DC. Death doesn't stop him. And when we get the reveal of why he's become a mortal enemy of Barry Allen and it's the most petty, insignificant thing; It's just a good reminder of why this type of person is such a problem.
- Batman/The Flash: The Button

Frankly I got so frustrated with Barry. I kept screaming in my head “JUST TELL THE TRUTH!!”. BLOODY JAMIE REYES TOLD HIS FAMILY ABOUT THE BLUE BEETLE IN THE FIRST OR SECOND ISSUE OF HOS ORIGINAL ONGOING COMIC!
Iris got on my nerves too. I understand being upset but she doesn’t stop to think how Barry feels about this or all the times he risked his life to save others. It reminds me of her reaction from S1 of the Flash. She really got on my nerves in the episode where she found out. If she was bloody intelligent she could have figured it out on her own. That’s what really annoys me about Iris. She doesn’t use her own deduction to figure out Barry is the flash
Either someone tells her or she finds out via some stupid method.
