Not The Flash I imagine!
15 March 2019 | by ChiaraVera13See all my reviews

Well the intriguing plot twist that keeps the season alive but I don't like the characterization they are giving to the Scarlet Speedster: flash should think fast and act even more quickly not to save the situation with superman oratory!
