(Wait. Let me explain. The year is 1984 and Barry Allen — the Flash — is on trial for manslaughter after killing his arch-nemesis, Professor Zoom, in order to save Barry’s fiance’s life. Now back to Memory Monday.)
–decides to rip off his mask in the middle of his trial, thus revealing his secret identity to the world. With friends like this, etc.?
(Spoiler alert: It’s all good. Turns out Flash had taken the precaution of having his face radically altered by a race of super-intelligent gorillas. Because it’s comics and he can.)
(From The Flash #345, May 1985. Written by Cary Bates. Art by Carmine Infantino and Frank McLaughlin.)
