The Outhouse has learned that Carmine Infantino has passed away.  Infantino is best known as the creator of Barry Allen, who helped usher in the Silver Age of DC Comics.  Infantino also co-created Wally West, the Elongated Man, Barbara Gordon, Adam Strange and Deadman.  As executive director of DC, Infantino ushered in a revitalization of the company, bringing in creators such as Jack Kirby and Neal Adams, whose Fourth World creations continue to play a major role in DC today.  Infantino was 87. 

A full remembrance will follow later this week.  RIP Mr. Infantino.
