Flash in the Pan

From AICN:

The WB has ordered a pilot for a new series based on DC Comics' fastest man alive," according to this Friday morning Variety story by Josef Adalian.

Todd Komarnicki, one of the many producers on the Will Ferrell Elf movie due in November, will script the "Flash" pilot.

Unlike the 1990 CBS version, the new Flash will feature a speedster who never dons the comic-book characters skintight scarlet running suit.

Like the comics current Flash, Wally West, the new TV Flash will learn that he is only the latest in a long line of Flashes.

Okay, heres the weird part. According to the Variety piece, the Flash will each week be sent on a time-travel mission to the past or the future.
