DCUO celebrates The Flash’s 75th birthday

Did you know that The Flash turns 75 this year? Yep, he does. And there’s probably a joke about being a spry septuagenarian in there somewhere, but I’ll leave that one for my fellow game bloggers.

Daybreak has decided to celebrate Flash’s big year with a one-minute DC Universe Online video clip filled with fast facts and in-game footage of both the man himself and various vignettes featuring the game’s super speed power set that he inspired. Click past the cut to have a look!

jackinthegreen Flimflamberge Midgetsnowman MorpayneRADIO Track down the episode wtih Mark Hamill from this season.  He reprises his role as the Trickster.  They even use caps of his 90s Flash appearance as news clips from the wave of terror that landed him in jail.  Hamill plays him as “Joker-in-everything-but-name” and it’s CHILLING.  
Plus. 90s Flash guest stars as Barry’s dad.  Great nod.

jackinthegreen Flimflamberge Midgetsnowman MorpayneRADIO Actually the acting is fine, its just that CW wants to capture the female audience too, so they mix in ‘feels’ moments for the ladies sitting on the same couch as their nerdy boyfriends watching the show, and its jarring going from superhero action to “How are you feeling today?” while drinking a cup of coffee talking.  I just take it in stride, as the price of having a really good rendition of Flash on TV (speaking of course as a caveman who wants ACTION!! all the time).
Can’t agree on the bad acting (for the major cast at least).

BKone Midgetsnowman MorpayneRADIO right. Its also why flash;s villains usually have to find creative ways to win. brute force simply does not work when your opponent has enough speed and the ability to survive the effects of said speed like thery were nothing.

I mean, quicklsilver can steal the show well enough as was noted, and Barry. Wally, and Bart are all shit tons faster than quicksilver has ever dreamed of being.

Midgetsnowman MorpayneRADIO Well, people are stupid. They generally don’t know what is kinetic energy. 
And TBH that’s why we would need series like Cosmos instead of The Flash. To educate the masses.

Flimflamberge Midgetsnowman MorpayneRADIO I think I prefer the 90s tv series . While I prefer it to Arrow its like a lot of CW shows they feel like soap operas because the acting is so bad in them for the most part .
