The Flash and Daredevil



Grant Gustin has hinted that he will be getting another upgrade to his costume on The Flash, maybe by the end of the season.  I hope they finally go with the yellow/gold boots this time.  They have him wearing red boots on the 90's series, this show, and for the upcoming Justice League film - and I don't understand why the live action suit designers keep doing that.

"Hot" colors (like bright yellow) under bright lighting can cause some problems with camera images, and I'd imagine it's even more fun with all the filters they use for the green screen effects. And the yellow boots "should" leave more of the visual speed traces that they have to put in by hand, which they probably don't have the budget for. I've also noticed that every new version of Superman's & Supergirl's costumes have less yellow than before, and even Iron Man went with mostly red and dark gold.

That makes a lot od sense, Jay - Still, I hope that they can find a way around the budgetary issues.

In answer to your question, Ross? They're intellectually lazy; that's why.

In answer to the question on today's cover/ That's a little more difficult.
My first guess would be Abra Kadabra teaming up with the time-traveling android Mr. Kline. My second guess would be Amazo as rebuilt by the Fixer and telepathically controlled by Mentallo. My third guess would be ninjas of the Hand working for Savitar. And my fourth guess?

The Hand working for Abra Kadabra, who's masquerading as Savitar. I even have the perfect title for such an adventure..."Sleight Of Hand!"

I just thought the Parasite.

@Occam: But, he's usually a Superman foe. I mean; true, he could have stolen Daredevil's radar sense and the Flash's super-speed in order to strike back at the Man of Steel without tipping him off too far in advance! That strikes me as too sneaky for the Parasite, however.

My guess? The so-called "Mad" Thinker is orchestrating things. With a little Wundagorian mind-control of the Parasite, by the Puppet Master, thrown in for good measure!

I'm thinking it's the Calculator. If you remember when he first appeared in Detective Comics, his schtick was to steal things at the precise moment that they're most valuable.
