A to Z Challenge – SUPER cross stitch

F is for Flash


Flash is from weelittlestitches’ superhero alphabet sampler.

The Flash has always been a great source of humor to me. He’s less serious than Batman, and he’s less boy scout than Superman. He’s a bit of joker. Every class needs a bit of a clown, and the Flash is that for the Justice League.


Keep up, if you can!

Again, my introduction to the Flash was animated, including Superman: The Animated Series, Justice League, and Justice League Unlimited.

He’s footloose and fancy free! The Flash in Superman: The Animated Series is never identified as Barry Allen. While the Flash of Justice League and Justice League Unlimited is eventually identified as Wally West, but he seems to be more of a fusion of Barry Allen and Wally West – his personality and appearance is more Wally while his origin story is more Barry.


Holy Flash Cubed, Batman!

The Flash appears in some incarnation in several animated series, such as The Batman (Flash), Teen Titans – “Lightspeed” (Kid Flash), Batman: The Brave and the Bold – “Requiem for a Scarlet Speedster!” (Barry Allen, Jay Garrick, and Wally West), and Young Justice (Kid Flash, main cast; Flash and Impulse, special guests).

He also appears in several of the direct-to-video animated films from DC, such as Justice League: The New Frontier, Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, Justice League: Doom, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, and Justice League: War (just to name a few of the many DC Universe animated original movies).


Huh?!? That many!!!

He’s a solid pillar of the Justice League, and some might even say he’s the “heart” of the Justice League. I know I love the Flash!

Recently, he has been portrayed by Grant Gustin in the CW’s The Flash, expanding the live-action television DC universe or Arrowverse. The Flash even appeared on an episode (“Worlds Finest”) of CBS’s Supergirl.


F is for Emma Frost


Emma Frost is from fangirl stitches’ girl power superhero comic book alphabet.

Frost has always intrigued me because of her mutation: not her vast telepathic abilities, but her shapeshifting capability used to transform into a solid diamond.

No single telepath is the same when it comes to the X-Men, and Frost’s diamond form has always made me more intrigued by the White Queen (of the Hellfire Club) than other telepaths.

Frost appears in cameos in the X-Men animated series during “The Phoenix Saga” and “The Dark Phoenix Saga.” She makes her first major animated role in Wolverine and the X-Men, depicting her as an essential addition to the main cast and a member to the X-Men team.

I cannot wait for my DVD copy of Wolverine and the X-Men to arrive – not only will I catch some images of Dust, but I’ll be able to see more Frost!
