Introducing... The Still Force.
"The Still Force is an energy in the universe that's trying to slow everything down entropically, trying to stop everything, trying to bring everything to a standstill," Snyder explained to Den of Geek. "And it has its own characters, it has its own figures that are connected to it who might not even know they are. And it's a complete enigma to Barry at this point.One of Barry's greatest villains, Gorilla Grodd, might have a leg up on him when it comes to figuring out how to control this thing."
"The idea, really, is to show that these characters think they know their powers, think they know their mythologies, think they know even sometimes their histories and their missions," he continued. "And then to sort of blow those things up."
Another odd thing I've been thinking about, but the way the Annual handled Magenta makes me wonder if they were thinking to angle her for a throwback return as a heroine. We list it as a conclusion of sorts to her character on our trope page, but the actual end of it in the comic is kind of... open. Way more idealistic and happy than the past, but interestingly open.
I dunno, it just kind of hit me as a "we could end it here if we want to, but we left it wide open just in case we don't" kind of deal, and with the minor rush of sympathetic villains getting a shot of being heroes in DC these days, I wonder if that factored into it.

theres also the sage and strength forces plus 2 more
So the Still Force is basically entropy and/or the eventual heat death of the universe?
Nice to see Iris remembers her wedding to Barry in today's issue. She doesn't tell him though
Who do you think Inmate: Crisis at the end of Flash War is?
