    Default Wally West's new superhero name?

    I don't think it's been leaked yet, so tell us your choices!

    Mercury seemed a popular choice in some threads I saw. I like that one too.

    Since his costume is mainly red, maybe he'll go by the Scarlet Speedster?

    What do you think?

    I'm not really a fan of this new costume. Reminds me of the original Teen Titans designs with the new 52.

    And his head just gives vibes of Geo-Force
    The J-man

    I'm going to predict "Thunderbolt" or "Scarlet Speedster".

    Future Flash is my favorite Flash design so far I liked the energy flowing from face and suit.

    To me it all depended on the color Wally wore
    Blue - Mercury
    Green - Velocity
    Yellow - Charge
    Red - Accelerate

    I prefer the Green and blue so those names obviously been in my mind for a while.

    I could see that with the open cowl and the way his hair is drawn. That rock is used a lot in Booth's images I wonder if there's a personal story to it.

    To me it is reminiscent of the rocks in the Wile E. Coyote/Roadrunner cartoons. I bet Booth was a big fan as a kid.

    Could always go with Impulse. As far as I know it's not being used currently.

    How about "Flash"? Hear me out... He has memories of being The Flash, knowledge of the speed force and powers. There are 3 guys called Superman, 3 guys called Joker, multiple people on earth called Green Lantern. He moves so fast that anyone he helps will just see a red blur will say "thanks Flash". Do you really think Wally will run back and say " no, it's Mercury!"
    Marvel has 2 Hawkeyes, 2 Thors, 2 Captain Americas, 3 Hulks, I don't see a problem with 2 Flashes, besides when Jay comes back will he have to change his name too?

    Getting to much a Scarlet Pimpernel vibe!

    They seek him here, they seek him there,
    Those Roguesters seek him everywhere.
    Is he in heaven?—Is he in hell?
    That dammed, elusive Speedster there.

    DC is also making a title called "The Atoms" , it stars 2 guys with the same superhero name.... Crazy stuff.

    What's wrong with Flash? Wally's earned the title a hundred times over and I don't see why Barry should be the only one allowed to use it. Marvel has multiple characters with the same name and they make it work just fine, so why couldn't it be the case here? But honestly I don't really care if DC keeps the name or not. As long as Wally's still there, I'm happy.

    Mercury might be a popular idea, but I'm not a fan of it, at least not for Wally. It's Max's name and Max was Bart's mentor and foster dad. I'd prefer if they kept it for Bart when he finally comes back.
