Quick continues her desperate battle in the year 2764, fighting alongside
Flash Jace Allen against a crafty female version of the villain Cobalt
Blue. Meanwhile, the epic battle to combat the Cobalt Blue gem and
its prophecy of doom continues with other speedsters in numerous other
eras. Wally West travels to the 853rd century in order to enlist
the help of Flash John Fox and finds himself battling an evil cloud of
living silicon. Max Mercury encounters grim incarnations of both
the Flash and Cobalt Blue in the bleak year 2231. Impulse finds himself
on a floating futuristic Central City set high in Earth's atmosphere.
Jay Garrick secretly seeks out Iris West, Wally's daughter, in the not-too-distant future. In the present
day, police scientist
Angela Margolin has been handed the dangerous job of keeping an eye on
Malcolm Thawne, the evil twin of Barry Allen who started it all. There seems no end for the family feud in sight and Wally, at last, decides
it's up to him alone to track down the most dangerous Thawne descendent
of them all: Professor Zoom, the Reverse Flash!
