Comic book fans have been crashing comic-book sites worldwide, including Newsarama, with the news that Barry Allen returns in the pages of DC Universe Zero.   Barry Allen, who was the Flash in the 1950s-1980s (and was arguably the first Silver Age hero), died in “Crisis on Infinite Earths” series in the mid-1980s.

The New York Daily News kicked off the intense fan interest this morning with an interview with Grant Morrison and Geoff Johns, who confirmed the return of Allen.

 ”When the greatest evil comes back to the DC Universe, the greatest hero needed to return,” Johns said.
