A lot of fans have been speculating that the SSoSV's unnamed leader is actually an alternate universe Alfred, operating under his old Silver Age alias The Outsider. According to Bleeding Cool, the Society's leader is indeed the Outsider --- but the Flashpoint version, not the Alfred one.

I was guessing it was Outsider from the flashpoint at the time it's nice to know my guessing is still quite good.

underwhelming and bit obvious but it could be worse.

Cool. I really liked Desai in Flashpoint and his tie-in, and was hoping he wouldn't fade into obscurity. I wonder if Blackout will come back as well.

This is an interesting twist. Does the Outsider remember Flashpoint, or is he as ignorant to it as everyone else?

I'm wondering how many characters there are that remember the pre-Flashpoint universe.

Batman and the Flash should be among them, right, since the Flash gave Batman that letter from his father at the end of Flashpoint?

It's not Chronos. Chronos is the unconscious guy Ollie rescued from Ivo while J'onn was talking to the leader of the SSoSV.

Go back and read the issue again.

If he really is the Outsider,i'm disappointed because he isn't bad or impressive as the Flashpoint version.

Agreed. I'd rather Desai over the Alfred of Earth-3.

Although I know the basic plot of Flashpoint, I did not actually read it. Could someone please explain to me the relationship between the leader of the Secret Society and Joker? I ask because in the middle of the issue the leader says "if only the Joker could see me now."

The Flashpoint version of the Outsider? Am I one of the few people who didn't see this coming? Still it makes sense given his mini series in Flashpoint. Set him up for this role I guess.
