Like I said, recreating the Divine Comedy using Flash characters leads to a more convincing reconstruction than with any other DC franchise. Maybe modified to make the two more seamlessly compatible but even then that’s saying given how coincidentally similar a fictional character like Barry Allen has become (and is) to a real life character like Dante Alighieri.
Even moreso if you make Barry more like Dante and given recent developments in the Flash comics where Barry Allen no longer dates his true love Iris West. To be fair, there are periods where Barry doesn’t date her and she herself died ahead of him (in fact marginally so) but similar enough to draw similarities between them and the women Dante loved.
Having Iris West be a stand-in for Beatrice-personaggia is telling especially if you bring up additional contexts to what else the latter could be. Iris West has been Barry’s wife, nagging paramour and quasi-sister of sorts especially on telly. Beatrice-personaggia has been interpreted by some to be most commonly Dante’s first crush but also beatitude, his daughter and rarely his wife.
Considering that Dante’s daughter became Sister Beatrice and Iris West has been depicted as a step-sister of sorts to Barry, these would be enough to seem incestuous to some. If these two are equated, then one wonders whether if the Beatrice character went from being a stand-in for his crush to more awkwardly his daughter and arguably his wife.
(The person who said that Beatrice could be a stand-in for his wife must’ve known that the former’s behaviour’s in line with what Boccaccio accuses the latter of.)
Possibly even more disturbing if Bart Allen (their grandson) gets associated with the lonza, symbol of lust, especially if he’s depicted as a Khnopff style sphinx. Fernand Khnopff was obsessed with his sister, so this adds more credence to the idea that both Westallen and Dante’s love for Beatrice might be more incestuous than believed.
As for Caitlin Snow, the most comparable character especially if she herself becomes a werewolf is Dante’s she-wolf. The she-wolf’s generally considered to symbolise greed and avarice. Caitlin Snow, being Killer Frost, has a constant craving for body and ambient heat.
Asssuming if Caitlin not becomes a werewolf but also practises sorcery and wolves are also associated with that (so much so that lycanthropy’s a form of witchcraft), then the she-wolf could also symbolise it. Once you recreate the Divine Comedy using the Flash, whilst you have characters that flat out replicate the former’s scenes there are others that bring new context.
Especially if it’s something that’s hardly ever intended or goes deeper than most Divine Comedy commentators understand.
