“Flashpoint” Begins

According to its description “The series details an altered DC Universe in which only Barry Allen, Kid Flash and Booster Gold seem to be aware of significant differences between the regular timeline and the altered one, including Cyborg’s place as the world’s quintessential hero, Superman’s detention by the government and a Thomas Wayne version of Batman who spends “his days running Wayne Casinos.”

Not only will we find the aforementioned “Flashpoint” mini-series being published, but there will also be a new grouping of tie-in titles that have been written solely based on the events in this new bizarre DC Universe. The core miniseries is written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kubert. It will all lead us to the relaunch of the DC Universe in a few months entitled “The New 52”. Will you be checking out this sure to be fast paced run of a story? Sorry I had to be corny for a second. Your thoughts on it are welcome in the comments.
