Synopsis:
Defeated by Cobalt Blue, Wally West listens to the tragic origin of Cobalt Blue. Shockingly, the man behind Cobalt Blue, Malcolm Thawne, is the long thought dead twin of Barry Allen. At their birth, a drunken doctor delivered children for the Thawnes and Allens, mistakenly causing the death of the Thawne child. Feeling it is the right thing to do, the doctor trades one of the Allen twins for the deceased Thawne child, delivering Malcolm into the hands of cruel grifters, while Barry goes into a loving home. Upon realizing the truth of his life, Malcolm Thawne set out to find his long-lost brother, and eventually learning to hate him. Driven by rage, Malcolm learns a mystical art allowing him to ‘take’ anything he wants, as long as he has the passion for it. As Wally regains his strength, Cobalt Blue reveals a shocking prophecy, which Wally must prevent at all costs!
