It’s the 80th Anniversary of The Flash, and I’m really excited that DC is admitting to the existence of Jay Garrick, the original and greatest Flash of them all, especially after years of sidelining and repeatedly retiring him.  With the Justice Society maybe/sorta/kinda existing again, it’s only natural that Jay return, and even though I’m not happy with what they’re going with him, Wally West is back in action as well.  Still, even having the three longest-serving Flashes back in action, we haven’t even scratched the surface of the available lightning-riders in the DC Universe, leading to today’s fastest query alive…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has a bias for Jay Garrick, not just because of his styhlin’ helmet, but because of his role throughout the 90s as elder statesman and teacher, asking: Which Scarlet Speedster is the Greatest Flash of them all?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
