Did DC kill the wrong Wally West?
Or even the wrong Flash?
My favorite has always been Wally West (the original). In a rare case his history survives both Crisis On Infinite Earths and Flash Point (okay, so he was missing for a little while, but he came back with his past, it’s just no one else remembered it).
Wally West May be the best example of a side kick replacing his partner and end up being a better character.
