March 20, 2023
Jeremy Adams, the writer of the ongoing series The Flash and DC’s animated Super Sons movie teases that the speedster and sidekicks will cross over.
Jeremy Adams, Flash writer suggests that the possibility of a Super Sons crossover might be in the works for the show.
On Twitter, the creator addressed fans “Who wants to see an image from [ The Flash#797?” In another tweet, the writer continued: “It was one of the first photos that Serg Acuna sent me.” Written by Adams, illustrated by Acuna, and due out in April 2023. Flash #797 is set to be a “super-speed adventure” that occurs when Kid Flash/WallaceWest babysits Jai and Irey West who are the children of Flash Wally West. In the tweet that was later deleted and still visibly available on Instagram at the time of this writing, Adams shared artwork of Superboy Jon Kent and Robin Damian Wayne and Robin Damian Wayne, which indicates that the two kids of Super Sons will make an appearance in the upcoming Flash issue.

An animated DC movie featuring the Super Sons stars The Super Sons
Adams is familiar with Super Sons. As the writer Peter J. Tomasi and artist Jorge Jimenez are the creative minds behind DC’s first Super Sons comic series that debuted in 2017, Adams created the script for the animated movie Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons that was released in 2022. The film follows Clark Kent’s son Jon who joins forces with Batman/Bruce Wayne’s Damian, to stop Starro the Conqueror from enslaving Earth.
It is yet to be decided, however, which Super Sons version will appear in Flash #797. The solicitation for the issue states “It’s a super-speed misadventure in babysitting as Kid Flash is watching Jai and Irey, the Flash’s children! When a sleepover gets out of hand, Ace has to bring back the twins, Maxine, and a handful of new acquaintances from across time and space!” There are a myriad of possibilities for the identities of these Super Sons might be. They may be Jon or Damian’s younger versions of the comic DC Universe or the same versions that Adams used in Battle of the Super Sons.

Adams already demonstrated a willingness and capability to travel through time and across the Multiverse during his time on Flash. As an example, his initial episode began by sending Wally West on a Quantum Leap-like journey through the bodies of different speedsters, once landing his hero within the Super Friends cartoon universe. Adams has run out of time for the Flash/ Super Sons crossover and Super Sons crossover, as Flash #800 is the conclusion of his series. The Flash will be relaunched in September. 2023, and will feature the writer Simon Spurrier and artist Mike Deodato working as the title’s main creative team.
Along with Adams and Acuna, The Flash issue 797 also features a main and variant cover artwork from Taurin Clarke, and other variant covers contributed to by Francis Manapul, Daniele Di Nicuolo, and Yasmin Flores Montanez. The issue will be available for sale on April 18 from DC Comics.
