The Flash: First Image Of Teddy Sears As Jay Garrick Is Classic Comic Homage


Talk about paying tribute to some iconic source material. The first official image of Teddy Sears as Jay Garrick, which you can see above, is a faithful recreation of the cover to The Flash #123. “Flash of Two Worlds!” wasn’t just the first time Barry Allen and Jay Garrick bumped into one another, it was also the story that introduced the concept of a multiverse, with DC’s Golden Age super heroes still alive and battling crime on Earth-Two.

The winged helmet is Jay’s signature costume element, and it’s already made an appearance on The Flash. Maybe Garrick will just come looking for it, but it’s more likely that the conclusion of the Season 1 finale, which saw Barry rush into a dangerous tear in the fabric of time, has something to do with it. There’s been a popular theory floating around that the title of the Season 2 premiere, “The Man Who Saved Central City,” actually refers to Jay, not Barry.

The rest of Sears’ Flash costume is also pretty faithful to the original, with the larger lightning bolt (though it’s only an outline, and not filled in) and blue pants. I’m guessing he’s not rocking Garrick’s original winged booties either, but I guess we’ll see.

As the ad reminds us, The Flash returns with at least two times the heroic speedsters for Season 2 on Tuesday, October 6 on The CW.
