Flashpoint: Chapter Three of Five last edited by magicman620 on 10/28/20 07:19PM View full history

FLASH QUESTION: Will The Flash and his new allies be able to fix the world?


Flashpoint #3 starts in Detroit, with Cyborg asking President Obama for more time so he can assemble the Resistance and fight the Amazonians. The president declines to give him more time and tells Cyborg that their is a traitor among the resistance, and the president think it's the Outsider. The president says it's time for the U.S. military to finally intervene, that they can't just sit around and wait for the super-humans to save them. Element Woman is seen in the back listening to the conversation in fear.

In Wayne Manor, Gotham. Barry is "mummy wrapped" in bandages due to his failed attempted to recreate the scenario to become the Flash. Barry tries to try one more time, but Batman doesn't want him to because he has third degree burns on 75% of his body. Barry insists he doesn't want to forget, then a surge of new memories flash into his mind. He know remembers a bridge that leads to no where, the public reveal of Abin Sur, and dinner with his mom. He realizes he needs to move quicker before he forgets Thawne murdered his mother, his wife, and Bruce. Then Thomas helps him get to the roof for one more shot. Then the lightning bolt hits both Thomas and Barry sending Thomas flying towards the spires in his fence, and just at the last second Barry regains his power and saves Thomas from being impaled.

In New Themyscira, or what was the United Kingdom, Lois Lane is transmitting a message to Cyborg. She says that Aquaman is preparing an all-out attack tomorrow, and that will become the final battle. Then she hears Etrigan rhyme, then sees she has met up with the resistance.

In Wayne Manor, Thomas sees that Barry is recovering, and Barry decides to make his costume with the materials in the manor. Then they decide to find people they may need with Thomas' computer. Thomas and Barry rant about why doesn't Barry just go back and change everything, which Barry says he can't because he could topple dominoes like the butterfly effect. Flash tries to assemble the Justice League, but since Thawne reversed everything he also took them out of the equation. Barry has Thomas look for Superman, who's rocket hit metropolis and not the field near Smallville. They locate Cyborg who they think can locate Superman. Thomas agrees to join Cyborg's resistance if he chooses the team, and the next person is Superman, who Cyborg only knows where he is. Cyborg takes them to New Metropolis to find Project Superman who is in an underground facility two miles under Metropolis. Once they find the person who is supposed to be Superman, they find this weak, small, man who hasn't seen the sun. Then the security fires at Batman, Barry, and Cyborg. Project Superman then ditches them and flies away, leaving Barry, Cyborg and Batman pretty much to die.

They Killed Krypto! 0

Flashpoint 3 picks up immediately after the last issue. The Flash, Barry Allen, lies almost dead, covered in third degree burns after attempting to regain his powers in what was frankly the funniest way possible. Thomas Wayne, this timeline's Batman, stands at his side. The interaction between Barry and Thomas is great. Azzarello said he writes Dr. Wayne like Clint Eastwood in Gran Turino, and it shows in the main title as well. So, if you want a portrait of Barry and Tom, picture Kowalski talki...

What if Superman was not raised by the Kents? 0

  Cover I had not read the Project Superman mini series so I was kind of scared that I would be lost if I did not read mini series because on the cover it says Project Superman in big fancy letters. But I was still very excited to see what Project Superman was all about. Story Batman and Flash work together to get his powers back. At first it did not work but they did not stop trying because if they gave up the world the Flash knew could be gone forever. Once the Flash got his powers back t...

So Much for Lightning Never Striking Twice 0

Flashpoint enters its middle chapter and continues going strong as Flash and Batman set upon the task of recreating the Justice League in the Flashpoint universe. While the issue does feature a couple of new reveals, it does also read very much like a middle chapter, covering some other things we are already familiar with via tie-ins and promotions while settling into the motions that will take us into the final act of the story.  Between this and his tie-in series which has also come out this w...
