So far we have:
- The Spaceship Never Crashed
- He spends his days running Wayne Casinos
- They experimented on him in a lab for years (Update)
- Where is his ring? (Update)
- Their marriage was arranged to prevent war (Update – last one for the day.)
It looks like someone — most likely the Reverse-Flash — is systematically altering history to prevent the origins of DC’S heroes. It’s a concept we’ve seen before. My first thought was of a JLI story from the early 1990s, but CraigRMacDonald pointed out on Twitter that it’s also the premise of the first year of Booster Gold. Of course, when you distill it down to such basic elements, just about any story has been told before, and it becomes all about the details and execution.
I’ll be updating this post with links to the new teasers when I have time, or you can keep an eye directly on The Source.
Or, for fun, you can play around with #FakeFlashpointTeasers on Twitter. [Edit: Fixed the link. IMO the biggest problem with new Twitter is the fragile link structure.]
The 5-issue(?) Flashpoint miniseries is being written by Geoff Johns and drawn by Andy Kubert.
Update: I linked to this the other day on Twitter, Facebook and Buzz, but for those who haven’t seen it, here’s a detailed analysis of what we know so far about Flashpoint at Inside Pulse.
