    So this is the lead in for the New 52 re boot Huh.Well, it s not particularly bad, but it s not exactly mind blowing, either I can see why quite a few other reviewers were disappointed in it It had that squished together, forced out, and then squished together again kind of feel to it Blah It could have been so much better.Possibly it just didn t work for me because I ve always felt that The Flash was one of the least cool members of the Justice League It takes a lot of work and a great So this is the lead in for the New 52 re boot Huh.Well, it s not particularly bad, but it s not exactly mind blowing, either I can see why quite a few other reviewers were disappointed in it It had that squished together, forced out, and then squished together again kind...

    Flash s mom was murdered when he was a kid so he decides to travel back in time and stop the killer Except messing with the timestream has kinda caused everything to get fucked up oopsies Who da thunk it Really, superheroes have just gotta get over their tragic backstories and move on So Flashpoint was kinda the beginning of DC s New 52 line in that Barry Allen s selfish meddling with time caused every title to be rebooted relaunched But it s also not because nothing that happens here Flash s mom was murdered when he was a kid so he decides to travel back in time and stop the killer Except messing with the timestream has kinda caused everything to get fucked up oopsies Who da thunk it Really, superheroes have just gotta get over their tragic backstories and move on So Flashpoint was kinda the beginning of DC s New 52 line in that Barry Allen s selfish meddling with time caused every title to be rebooted relaunched But it s also not because nothing that happens here besides Flash s actions has any bearing on the New 52 It s essentially an Elseworlds book, though not an especially inspired one In this world, there s no Flash, Green Lantern is still Abin Sur, there s a different, muchpsychotic Batman, Superman s unknown and missing, and Wonder Woman and Aquaman are at war with each other and are trying to take over the world for no reason I guess it s because Flashpoint is flashpointless that Geo...

    I came into this reading not expecting much, because Flash has never been one of my favorites, and so I was surprised Flashpoint was as entertaining as it was But why a 5 star rating, you ask Couple of purely personal reasons.One, I love What If stories Yeah, they have been done to death, but I still like them Guess that is why I also read alternate history novels.Two, I m a man who is very close to his mother as well as being very close to my own kids, so a couple of the story lines I came into this reading not expecting much, because Flash has never been one of my favorites, and so I was surprised Flashpoint was as entertaining as it was But why a 5 star rating, you ...
