Bates, Infantino and McLaughlin bring the Flash to a conclusion in issue 350 (Oct. 85).
Despite the almost-revelation that the Reverse-Flash was Abra Kadabra, at the end of the previous issue, and Mirror Master so close to figuring it out, in this one none of the Rogues seem to suspect that the Reverse-Flash is anything other than what he claims, even as he uses a magic wand to try to crush them all in a cube. Mirror Master is the one to save the day, using laser contact lenses.
The Rogues drop by Gambi to get cleaned and fed and some new costumes. Have to look your best when you are preparing for revenge. Again, though Captains Cold and Boomerang, Trickster, Weather Wizard and Mirror Master have all been associated with Gambi before, this is the first time Rainbow Raider is.
The Rogues then burst into the Flash Museum, tie up Dexter Myles and use the Cosmic Treadmill to travel to the time period of the Reverse-Flash. There they find proof that he is really Abra Kadabra.
Kadabra has continued to play the Flash perfectly. He attacked and destroyed the city court, where the Flash was being held, making it look like the hero was responsible, and that he kidnapped, rather than saved, the juror. This is all being done in order to prove to the council from his era that magic ought to be credited as an art.
The Rogues show up, freeing the Flash and the juror, and turning en masse against Abra Kadabra. With a small army at his back, the Flash takes the phony down. Kadabra is dragged back to his era, and the other villains are left free. All will return in the pages of Crisis on Infinite Earths, which is already going on at this time.
The juror's consciousness turns out to be that of Iris, Barry's dead wife. Her parents knew from records when she was due to die, and so they pulled her soul out, and built her a new body in this era. It's preposterous, but does make for a nice finale, re-uniting the couple after so much. Especially as they do not have very long to be together, with the Flash's death in Crisis already having been advertised.
The trial went on far too long, which is a real shame, as there was some great stuff in there, especially for the time period.
A new Flash series would begin in 1987, with Wally West taking up the mantle after Barry's death. Iris and Dexter Myles would eventually pop up in that book.
And I managed to finish this run before the end of the year. Happy New Years!
