Titans – The Return of Wally West | Comics

When "Flashpoint" wave caused the creation of the reality of Prime Earth, speedster Wally West was missing from that timeline and Barry Allen was the one the world came to know as The Flash. Since, Wally has recently resurfaced from beyond the Speed-Force and with help from Barry Allen, has established his anchor to Prime Earth. Donning a new red costume, Wally now goes looking for his friends, The Titans but the world that he knew has forgotten him long ago.

Back at their old hangout, Wally is confronted by his old friend Dick Grayson AKA Nightwing, only to be tased by lightning upon touching him, which also restores his memory about Wally. Rest of the gang he used to hang out with; Arsenal, Donna Troy, Omen and Tempest also arrived thinking Nightwing was in trouble and soon takes their shot on Wally and everyone's memory is eventually restored with the spark of his Speed Force, re-uniting the happy family of Titans once again.

As Lilith Clay looked inside Wally's mind, she found a powerful thought in his mind, the name of Linda Park, whom he knew before all of these. Omen also unknowingly awakened another mind from within Wally's consciousness, currently residing in Keystone City. A lousy magician named Mister Hocus Pocus, who suddenly started yelling in pain and transformed into Abra Kadabra, a villain who is obsessed with Wally West.

Meanwhile, reporter Linda Park arrives at Keystone City looking for a fresh scoop and find out a crowd appeared out of nowhere, resembling to The Titans but only younger and in their old outfits. She even confronted the Kid Flash among them about if he knows her, to which he denies as he was just born without any memories. Soon, the real Titans reach to the scene to confront their evil counterparts created by Abra Kadabra.

The magical reproductions of the original Titans seem to have outmatched the real team a bit but eventually got taken down. The puppet Lilith Clay figures out that Linda Park from the audience is very special to Abra Kadabra's arch-nemesis Wally West but he thinks that's impossible according to the history. However, the villain then abducts Linda Park in his twisted revenge scheme against Wally West and gave him only an hour to save her life.

Titans – The Return of Wally West

With a new wave of change, "DC Rebirth" has started unfolding many unresolved mysteries and providing long-awaited answers. "The Return of Wally West" storyline ran side by side with The Flash story-arc "Lightning Strikes Twice" and takes place to the third ongoing monthly series of "Titans", which is scripted by writer Dan Abnett (Ghostbusters, The Authority) and illustrated by artist Brett Booth (Justice League of America, Teen Titans – New 52), collecting issues #01-06 and Titans: Rebirth one-shot.

Wally's Last Run

The story sheds light on the reality altering events of DC Universe, as Flash's old enemy Abra Kadabra is back again with his bag full of tricks and it is revealed that he made his arch-nemesis disappear from reality. Though he was responsible for Wally's disappearance, he has nothing to do with reality manipulation of Prime Earth, since he isn't that powerful. However, Abra Kadabra is still aware of a "Presence" that was actually responsible for that. This probably is a nod to the "Watchmen" connection, which will be more detailed in the upcoming "Made in Manhattan" storyline.

Titans just gotten interesting with the return of Wally West. Great storyline from DC Rebirth! Looking forward to more adventurous read!

So far, DC Rebirth is delivering great story-arcs of each heroes. Since, The Flash was the center of Flashpoint, the core story is supposed to revolve around him.
