The Thinker has plugged himself into the Flash's brain! Can the Fastest Man Alive out-think the Thinker and free himself? Even if he does, he's still got Blacksmith and the Rogues to worry about! "Crossfire" part 4.

    The opening battle with the Thinker was a bit disappointing, but the latter half of the book more than makes up for it, as we see Wally wage a desperate battle against the Rogues, who continues to be presented as a highly effective group, who use a nice combination of clever attacks & strategy to keep the Flash on the ropes. There's also some fairly shocking moments in this issue, from Cyborg's serious looking injuries at the hands of Magenta, to Murmer's nicely disturbing struggle with the quick healing Detective Morillo. This issue also does a pretty nice job setting us up for the big finish, as the issue ends with a fairly exciting cliffhanger, and we learn that Blacksmith's plan is far larger than I had expected it was. The book also continues to develop it's supporting cast quite nicely, with Goldface starting to emerge as more that the former villain/current corrupt union boss, that he was before this arc began.
