There are a new picture out there for everyone interested in how Jordan Fisher may look as Bart Allen at The Flash season 7. With the information about Fisher signing on to portray Bart, a.k.a. Impulse, fans are thirsty for any new details regarding the character and how they will work him to the series. With The Flash already comprising so many speedsters that have come and gone, as a result of time traveling and the multiverse, something to help fans conceptualize the newest member of the Flash household has been welcomed.
From the comics, Bart Allen is the grandson of Barry Allen and Iris West, his parents being their son Don Allen and Meloni Thawne, a descendant of Flash villain Eobard Thawne. Most frequently drawn a teen, Bart was known under such monikers as Kid Flash and Impulse, even temporarily serving in The Flash following the disappearance of his mentor, Wally West. For now 7 The Flash, they do a variation of Bart in which he is the son of Barry and Iris in the future and most likely brother to Nora Allen-West from season 5.
Currently, there’s a potential style for Fisher as Bart thanks to Instagram consumer britedit, who released the picture one day following the casting was announced. While it can be fan art, it will manage to work in lots of the components in the Impulse costume from the comics, including the colour scheme which includes more white than Barry or Wally’s costumes. And seeing Fisher’s face in that costume goes a long way toward imagining exactly what the showrunners of The Flash may have in mind for how the character will be portrayed more youthful and carefree than any other speedster we’ve seen earlier on the collection. Check out the image below:
Fisher got started at a young age in tv with his work across a variety of networks and shows including Freeform’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Disney Channel Original Movies, Teen Beach Movie and Teen Beach two, FOX’s Grease Live, and ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. Now he is more known for his characters as John Ambrose in Netflix’s To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, Jake Taylor in Work It, and his voice-work on She-Ra along with the Princesses of Electricity. Fisher will appear on The Flash during episode 17 of season 7, which will also be the 150th episode of this series, also has led to a couple of fan theories which Barry and Iris’s daughter Nora may also seem to celebrate the occasion.
While Fisher may be a bit older compared to Bart Allen normally seen in the comics, the man’s earnestness and youthful demeanour make it possible that The Flash’s Bart will nevertheless retain a lot of the childish aspects of the character. The actual question is if introducing Bart, and making him another child of Barry and Iris, is the beginning of the end for the set. Bart Allen is the final of the speedster heroes associated with Barry for the series to introduce and have team-ups, a useful story crutch they have been leaning on since the debut of Jay Garrick in season 2. With no crutch, it might be difficult for the series to come up with gimmicks to spark new interest each season, particularly as they continue to fight to locate worthy villains to build story arcs around every year.
