Didn't you know that is an ability that all gorillas possess.

The book looks awesome. I am a little sad to see Savitar die, but I also never expected to see him again.

Love the variant cover and that more answers are coming. Pretty heavy, ominous tone, but I guess that fits the event-book and crime-drama theme. Can't wait.

It's been great to see Savitar and (now) Christina again, but...

Savitar's primary motivation was to become one with the speed force, and his followers were all about that same goal. In fact, Wally stopped him by giving him what he wanted (i.e. leading him into the speed force). And sure, Christina tried to pull him out of the speed force once (Wonder Woman Plus Jesse Quick one-shot)...but it wasn't to bring back her beloved leader. It was because she was angry at him for rejecting her, and she wanted to rob him of his victory.

So it's kind of weird to see Savitar wanting out of the speed force (though I think it was kind of implied that the "good guys" it had already absorbed would keep him in line one way or another), and it's weird to see his followers praying for his return.

Not that Christina has ever been mentally stable, and I suppose it's certainly not unprecedented for a cult to idolize its leader at the expense of its founding principles.

Just have to see how this plays out, I guess.

Darn, I wish those covers would have been a 50/50 split.

Yeah, kind of an "I finally became one with the speed force and it wasn't what it was cracked up to be."

Sort of like a certain "paradise" dimension that the survivors of Crisis on Infinite Earths went to...

actually..Barry called it Savitar's prison. I wonder if the speed force is not really a speedsters Nirvana, but a place that traps their souls!!! hehehe
