This Heroclix Sunday we go back to Central City to visit our friend Barry Allen. The CCPD map was especially for the CW version of Barry, but this map is made with the Silver Age Flash in mind.
|The one who trained simian track teams. And, yes, they are holding hands. |
Barry is secure in his humanity.
It COULD be in any DCU fictionopolis but there are a few touches that mark it as especially Central-City-esque.
First, it features THE three places that all Flash Rogues rob from: An Art Gallery, A Bank, and A Jewelry Store.
|Sometimes more than one.|
Note that, unlike, say, Gotham City or Apex City, where everything has a name (and in the case of Apex, an address), in Central City the Bank and Jewelry Store and Art Gallery do not have names. The only thing that gets named in Central City are toy companies and tailor shops.
|Central City takes its toys very seriously.|
Second, it has Central City's trademark absurdly broad sidewalks. I would say "impossibly", but I live in Washington DC where the sidewalks actually look like that.
|Social distancing is pretty easy in DC.|
Third, if you look carefully you'll see that the vendor at the south of the map is a CCJitters stand. Because of course it is.
It's really amazing how much happens at a place that only appeared in comics once.
|Remember when Iris used to WORK there? Good times.|
