Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. – The Flash Legacy Part 2!

From 1956 until 1986, Barry Allen was the Flash, the fastest man alive. But he fell during Crisis on Infinite Earths, becoming one with the universe as he saved it from destruction. Wally West, formerly known as Kid Flash, then became the first superhero sidekick to fulfill the unspoken promise of one day succeeding the mentor. Over the years, Wally had some wardrobe changes and stepped aside from time to time while other Flashes stood in. Finally, Barry Allen returned and then… But maybe we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s start with the first scarlet speedster of the DC Universe’s Post-Crisis era.

Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. – The Flash Legacy!

This week, CW released photos of actor Grant Gustin in his costume as the Flash, the scarlet speedster superhero soon to star in his own live-action series. You’re all likely chatting about what you think about the suit and whether it looks like a cool, sleek costume or something that is sure to chafe a man regularly running faster than sound. In any event, it seemed like a good idea to look at the character’s comic book counterparts.

But we can’t just talk about Barry Allen, the version of the Flash who will star in the live-action show. Barry’s great, but he’s just one part of a long legacy of lightning-themed champions of justice. So let’s look at the history of the heroes called Flash (and some related characters).

Full Costume Revealed for CW’s The Flash TV Show

Earlier we showed you the helmet part of The Flash’s new built-for-CW costume. Now we have the whole thing. I don’t know if it’s just the lightning bolt in the background, but the first thing I thought is that he looks like a lightbulb, which is… appropriate, I guess. What do you think?

WB Reveals Costume for its Flash Show

Well, from the neck up, anyway. The WB has revealed this look at Grant Gustin in costume (designed by Colleen Atwood) as Barry Allen from the CW’s The Flash. Though in low lighting, the costume appears to skew darker than the fire engine red that the Flash is usually depicted in, but its chinstrap and seams are straight out of the New 52. What do you guys think?

But chatter is only one way to know that a post grabbed a lot of attention. There’s also views! So here are our 2013 posts that were seen by the most eyeballs. Your eyeballs.

Do Try This At Home

Cosplayers Photographed Outside Their Natural Habitat – At Home

Most of us are used to seeing cosplayers exclusively at fan conventions but they have to get dressed somewhere! photographer Klaus Pitchler has put together a series called “Just the Two of Us,” featuring Austrian cosplayers at home and in costume. The results are pretty spectacular and sometimes, a little bit creepy.

Gamorrean Guard Pug Has Best Pug Costume of the Year

This li’l guy’s name is Chubbs, and he’s upgraded his previous costumes (wampug, banthapug) to one that implies a certain level of sentience. I mean, I’m not saying the guards of Jabba’s palace are brainboxes exactly, but they’re not beasts of burden at least.
