If you want to read how the Amazons make absolutely no sense whatsoever, then Flashpoint is your kind of story. But from what I hear, it is nothing compared to the impossible continuity error that rested on GL books so I may not have as much to complain about as them lol.

Flashpoint was just in the "meh" category, and I only read it due to the reboot. However, the tie-ins weren't bad.

I particularly liked the Batman one, myself. And the World of Flashpoint.

I meant just in reference to the Amazons. Batman was good and the core title was good. WoF was not bad but everything else was pretty terrible. Notably Lois Lane's jump from a human sized chest to Power Girl proportions. Most of the things and people the Amazons had only existed in Post Crisis because of Diana's journey off the island. That never happened in Flashpoint which by itself is not even acceptable but to have it happen because Flash's mother did not die, a character that has never had anything to do with WW, hell Flash barely has had anything to do with WW.... That is lazy and ludicrous.

The entire event seemed like a distraction of mindless action and fan service so we would not notice they wiped the slate clean with most of the characters for DCNU.

I agree with you.
 
Apparently allot of things happened just because of Flash's changes, Bruce being killed instead of his parents, Superman being locked in a lab upon arrival on Earth, Captain Marvel being Captain thunder needing all the kids to say the word to get empowered etc etc.

That is right. For some reason, Flash having a mother caused Superman's space craft to crash in the middle of the city of Metropolis instead of the heart of Kansas in Smallville. So Flash's mother caused the placement of the entire planet to change? Or did her presence reach out into space and pull his ship to another location?

I'm not sure, I think his mother may have also told Joe Chill to kill Bruce instead of his parents.

Seems like his mother was actually the Devil. So much mayhem created just because she lived.

Atlanteans are greater in number, and every one of them have adapted to the intense pressure of the oceans depths. Due to this Aquaman can deflect bullet for christ sake!! how are the amazons gunnna hurt that?? The durability factor I think wins this. Even if the Amazons have super strength (which the atlanteans do too), they are not as durable and therefore will have more deaths. Plus the atlanteans who can make it back to water will heal faster. this is no contest.

the Atlanteans win. 
 
they have advanced technology on their side and aquaman has the Trident of Poseidon. the trident hold great mystical powers, capable of controlling any body of water, creating water elementals, speed ships and other water vehicles with water, create fogs and storms of high intensity, summon waves of water to propel him at great speeds, and create earthquakes by increasing water pressure. It can manipulate and conjure water, as well as disperse energy in the form of bolts and forcefields. 
 
the key is the trident, with it, aquaman will flood the battlefield and the battle will take place underwater where the amazon army will be massacred.  Wonder Woman will put up a fight but will be no match for aquaman underwater

Read Flashpoint, or watch 'Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox' and that pretty much gives you some easy answers.

Atlanteans. Aquaman cancause tidal waves and the fight is on an island, once he drowns the 1000 amazons it's a one sided fight in the water

Not Doubt the Atlanteans take this (Advance Technology, Mystics, Elements, Durability, Resources, Terrain even the home advantage for the Amazons still the island is still surrounded by water Amazon Leaders would put up a fight but they will get overwelm afterward.

@morbusgrav: Wonder Woman Pre-52 against all Atlantean army including their leaders (Aquaman-2000's, Mera-New 52, Tempest, Kaldur) now that's a what i call a joke. Arthur - gonna Mindrape her via Psychic attack using his Telephaty and gonna be distracted by thousands of sea monsters both huge as a kraken and tiny as a plankton, Mera's - gonna drain the water out of her body in a distance providing Hydro-shields to her ally, Tempest - gonna bombarded her with his beams also using both his Pyrokinesis & Cryokinesis ability on WW, Kaldur gonna use his Hydrokinesis combine with his electric energy to Pierce WW while she was caught by Telephaty and Dehydration. With the Army aiming her at the same time blitzing aint gonna be a help for her when most of the gonna be underwater. - dont put so much hype and hopes for WW popularity alone, becuz they ain't gonna fight her in Physical Hand to hand combat these would be too much for her. Not to metion Poseidon's Trident and the terrain.

Amazons stomp. Death Ray kills all Atlanteans once they reach Themyscira.

@pressurecross: Telepathy doesn't work on WW.
