Now as he assures us, Kid Flash won’t suddenly disappear. He’s still open to returning when needed, but he feels that he can’t do it full time. His intentions are respectable, but as a fan I can’t help but feel sad at the loss to Legends Of Tomorrow. The character was perfect for the show, and only got to shine in a handful of episodes so far. It’s sad to see him go, but here’s to hoping he still shows up time to time…and at least we get to keep Constantine right?
