(SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers. Don't read it before you've read the comics.)
I'm sorry this entry is so late; it's been a crazy couple of weeks. But enough of that, on to the comics --
ADVENTURE #524 (2011/05)
CUTE BOYS: Young Clark Kent, Young Lex Luthor
XS appears in a cameo when Flash (Barry Allen) is telling Superman about all the other Flashes he knows.
Barry Allen says that Bart will "do his Grandfather proud" and muses that he doesn't feel old enough to have a grandson, or even a son, for that matter.
First of all, since all of this involves time travel, Barry can easily have any number of great-great-grand-flashes without being any older. But more to the point, he has a granddaughter too. I guess the fact that Jenni is a Legionnaire means that she doesn't matter in the framework of the rest of the DC Universe. Pshaw!
I must say, I'm not that impressed by Barry Allen since his return. If you were a guy who could travel through time, and you discovered that you had a son and daughter in the future, wouldn't you at least want to go take a look at them? But I suppose Don & Dawn's connection to the Legion makes them personae non grata as well. Double pshaw!
