Flashpoint #4 *Spoilers*

Postby Zechs » Wed Aug 03, 2011 6:30 pm

Well just on the how the 52 will be started.

:lol:

I didn't buy it but skimmed it and bought another copy of last weeks Tec (I mean that cover is just so nuts). So now we have the explanation why the revamp happens. Barry is losing his memories of that world and thus if he fixes it, that explains why some things remain or others change drastically. It's all Barry's fault.

Oh and Captain Thunder goes out like a punk and I assume Billy dies thus continuing this level of stupidity DC has with using the Marvel characters save for Black Adam. :smt011

Then Thawne finally shows up. Hopefully this entire series can be redeemed somewhat if FP Batman kills the fucker. I mean nobody will miss him? His return has been utterly pointless with two time travel stories that have done more damage then good. Plus the like Norman before him, the only time Thawne was ever good as a character was when he was eight feet under. It's sad, but a true fact. Don't give me Return of Barry Allen shit. That is a good story and that's the best anyone will ever write Thawne.

I guess the only consultation this event gave us some great Elseworld stories.

I want Thawne to kill Aquaman and Wonder Woman. Humiliatingly.

Thomas Wayne has been the only concept I've liked in this mess.

So, Barry forgot his own marriage, but remembered a load of minor stuff about other characters?

No. Zechs has a theory based on him skimming the issue, nothing else.

What happened is that Barry said that finding and fixing every single moment that Thawne changed is like picking individual grains of sand on a beach. So the best that can be done is a patch job to get everything somewhat as it was rather than exactly.

First there was the retcon punches, now retcon speedsters.

If this carries over to the NuDCU, then it might explain WW's pants! He keeps forgetting them!

I see it like a butterfly effect. Barry will change something but ultimately the ripples from his change result in the DCNu

I've been hating since he returned and pushed the far far superior Wally West (the TRUE Flash) to the side.

I'm really enjoying the mini and the tie ins and this whole alternate world. The funny thing is where I think it falls short is actually that it seems to be going by too fast (far stretch from other events that seem to take forever to get to the point).

See I think Johns is a good writer most of the time. I think that Alex Ross killed him and is using him as a fucking handpuppet.
His first run on JSA, Teen Titans, Flash were all epic and then he went silver age crazy.
