WARNING: If you have not read THE FLASH #0 and do not wish to know what happens, do not continue reading this post (major spoiler alerts ahead!).


Part of what we promised from Zero Month was planting seeds that will play out in future arcs of each title. One way we did so was by introducing new characters who will play major roles in the coming months.


Fans who picked up THE FLASH #0 met a new member of the West family. Locked away behind bars, Daniel West certainly seems to have an interesting story to tell. But who is this mysterious character? What are his ties to Barry? And how will his introduction impact the series?


“Daniel West is a classic case of juvenile delinquency,” series co-writer and artist Francis Manapul teased to THE SOURCE. “Unfortunately for him, his first major crime is foiled by Flash's first ever outing as a superhero. In the present, after having served his debt to society, Daniel just wants his old life back. All he wants is to go back home. But what he finds is a city over run by apes, and a sister that's nowhere to be found. Welcome home indeed. He'll be setting forth to find his lost sister amidst the disastrous events of ‘Gorilla Warfare!’”
