The Flash now has the strength force in him. With it he must stop the Trickster who also has this power. Their fight may destroy all of Iron Heights, the prison where all the Rogues go to when they are arrested. Will Flash stop the Trickster from using his powers?

This story reads like a by the book series on adventure. Like an old DC Comic, the Flash solves the conflict with his brains instead of his fist, especially when he has so much power. This is a different approach to the Trickster who has no reservations about using his strength. The conclusion of the story shows that the Trickster can be heroic although given the final page reveal, it is unclear what is being foreshadowed here.

This is another issue where a fill-in artist is featured. Christian Duce gives some grit and nice textures to his characters. He is quite good at drawing exaggerated musculature. This is not a jab. This is needed for this issue. I wish the editors would retain one alternate artist for when Howard Porter is working on the other issues. Duce would be a good pick if he could commit.

Rating: 7 /10
