After reading finishing reading the first volume of Earth 2, I am pleased with these new versions of the classical superheroes. One of these heroes was The Flash aka Jay Garrick. This version of Jay Garrick was relatable because he started out as someone who seemed to not have a future until he literally received a gift from the gods: The Speed Force! I liked how even though Jay was the fastest man alive that he was having difficulty controlling his powers; specifically how to brake after moving super-fast. In combat situations, Jay was inexperienced, but after getting the hang of it he was able to briefly knock out someone as big and powerful as The Atom aka Al Pratt. Despite being filled with fear in the face of a seemingly unstoppable enemy, Jay stood his ground alongside fellow heroes and ultimately prevailed.
