The Flash came back for the eighth time (yes, eighth) this Tuesday for “Armageddon, Part 1,” the opening chapter in a new crossover event that will take place over the first five weeks of the season. As well as seeing the Scarlet Speedster teaming up with old friend Ray Palmer (The Legend of Tomorrowby Brandon Routh), the premiere also featured “leveled up” Barry Allen. And fans can’t get enough of the new superheroes being added.
There has been much criticism for years now that the savior of Central City is not as powerful as he should be, often not using the full extent of his incredible speed just for the sake of intrigue. . But it seems The Flash The makers finally realized this and decided to fix the problem in season eight. “Armageddon, Part 1” reveals that Barry is now more confident and in control of his pace than ever before.
Like when he could take down an entire Royal Flush gang in seconds.
This also meant that Barry was much more independent than usual and relied less on his teammates to tell him what to do.
He actually beat someone in a fight, guys!
Did we accidentally tune the wrong program?
He’s the Lightning he’s always wanted to be.
The launch did not disappoint.
Fingers pass Barry will stay that way throughout the season.
We got our first hint of this new Barry in the season 7 finale when the speed player was finally able to best complete his enemy Reverse-Flash in a skirmish with relative ease. But even though he’s stronger than ever, his troubles aren’t over yet. “Armageddon” sees Barry facing a prophecy that he will bring apocalypse Future. And worse, the new alien villain Despero is trying to kill him to save the planet.
The Flash season 8 continues with “Armageddon, Part 2” next Tuesday on The CW.
