Barry puts his fleet feet in his mouth against the next Force wielder he meets! Introducing the new Strength Force user, Powerhouse: she's a young rebel using her powers to fight the corrupt police state in Corto Maltese. When Barry learns that she wants to use her super-strength to overthrow the government, he tries to intervene-and ends up tripping into a melee with the new hero instead.

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Dec 19, 2018

    In the end, despite the main villains not making any major plays at taking down Flash, or stealing a lot of Force energy (or whatever theyre actually supposed to be attempting to do), this was a fun issue that does exactly what this arc set out to do: inform the readers and Barry Allen about the Forces. Fuerza was a great way to dole out that information, and Williamson presented her in a manner that made you want to know more about her. Gemini arent really needed in this story, so far, but Williamson is probably taking them somewhere big. If only hed get there a little faster, because they are the worst part of a very fun story.

    Joshua Williamson and Rafa Sandoval introduce Fuerza in THE FLASH #60. This new character shows a real promising start in this issue. Hopefully, there will be many more to come with her! Williamson writes her impeccably and Sandoval's design is instantly eye-catching. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tom Zimm Dec 12, 2018

    The story moves and doesn't get bogged down in the emotional gunk that plagued The Flash in previous stories. Instead, the writer taps into new characters to infuse meaning in the conflict and flush out the importance of the conflict to the human race. On this point, I am especially interested in Fuerza's character and if she's here to stay, and how she will continue to wield The Strength force to help others. I highly recommend that fans of The Flash pick up this book to see what new fact is learned about the new Forces. Read Full Review

    Finally, the Flash decides to give us a really great issue. We get amazing character development, a proper introduction to a new villain, and some really incredible art. What more can you ask for? I'm happy to finally give this a great score instead of tearing this book apart. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Dec 12, 2018

    Overall, though, this is the strongest installment of the "Force Quest" arc yet and continues to expand the mythology of the Flash universe in a fascinating way. And can we get Fuerza in a team book stat? Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Dec 14, 2018

    The only thing that doesn't really work for me is Powerhouse's costume design, which looks like a Green Lantern gone to hell. It's a small complaint but I think more time could have been used to develop it. That minor complaint aside, this is a good issue in a solid book. Read Full Review

    The Flash #60continues the saga of "Force Quest", raising a few potentially interesting wrinkles into the purpose of the Forces, but not really resolving much of anything. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Dec 13, 2018

    The Force Quest storyline is adding an interesting dimension to mythos of the Flash. The idea of Barry as one of a international team of Force avatars that protect the entire Earth opens a new world of possible stories for the Flash, bringing him out of Central City into the wider DCU more often. It will be fascinating to see where this all leads. Read Full Review
