The following contains spoilers from The Flash #783, on sale now from DC.
Writer Jeremy Adams has revealed the name of the Batman/Flash combination character who appears in The Flash #783.
Adams tweeted a photo from DC’s upcoming The Flash #784, which reveals the name of the new character to be Night-Flash. “Alright!” he posted. “[The Flash #784] FINAL ORDER CUT OFF is Sunday. Please buy and spread the word. Thanks #flashfamily! You are the best! P.S. What have Jai and Irey got themselves into?”
Night-Flash appeared in The Flash #783 after several members of the Flash Family found themselves traveling through the DC Omniverse in an effort to rescue a missing Barry Allen. Wanting to prove themselves as heroes, Jai and Irey enter into the Speed Force and find themselves in an alternate reality that appears to be a different version of Gotham City. With an “Allen Tower” looming over the skyline, the two are in a dark ally when a darkly ominous figure — Night-Flash — appears behind them.
In an effort to now rescue Jai and Irey in addition to Barry, Jesse Quick and Max Mercury also enter into the Speed Force but find themselves in a post-apocalyptic landscape similar to Mad Max: Fury Road. While there, they run across a Mad Max version of Barry who, instead of running with his feet, is driving a car through a desert while some semis, motorcycles and other vehicles follow behind him. Wally and Kid Flash, meanwhile, arrive in a 1960s reality where Barry Allen and Wally West/Kid Flash are fighting Captain Cold in a comical manner.
DC has introduced a similar Batman/Flash combination character before. Appearing in the Dark Knights: Metal crossover, Red Death is a version of Batman from Earth-52 who fuses with the Flash after Batman chains Flash to the Batmobile and drives into the Speed Force. The character quickly proves himself a villain who teams up with Barbatos to overtake the DC Multiverse.
The Flash #784 continues DC’s “The Search for Barry Allen” storyline, which ties into the ongoing Dark Crisis event. The synopsis for the issue reads, “The search for Barry Allen! Wally and Wallace have arrived on the planet Pariah has trapped Barry on—but it’s not quite a happy reunion among the Flashes.”
The Flash #784 comes from Adams, artist Amancay Nahuelpan and colorist Jeromy Cox, with cover art by Taurin Clarke and variant cover art by Bengal. The issue releases July 19. The Flash #783 is on sale now from DC.
