DC has started releasing teasers for it's 2011 Flash event entitled Flashpoint.
 
The first referring to a famous spaceship that crashed on earth some time ago.  Now you might be thinking that it's referring to Superman's spaceship but we know that Johns is writing this event and with Johns still writing Green Lantern could this image be referring to Abin Sur's ship?

The second image seems a little more vague to me.  We've got several characters running around right now with the last name Wayne.  They could mean anyone including Tim Wayne, Damian Wayne, Bruce Wayne or since these seem to be what if situations then what if Bruce's parents never died?


Your guesses are as good as mine and I'm sure that DC has a few more teasers to release and I'll post them here as they appear.
 
I have no idea what the third teaser is about.

For the first I am guessing that Superman's spaceship didn't crash to Earth although your theory is good and for the second that his paernyts didn't die.

@danhimself:
Ohhh now that's interesting. In the last issue of Flash they teased about some temporal event in the early 21st century that affected the future. Time shifting around so some of the greatest hereos didn't come to be is interesting. I wonder if they're saying that if Flash didn't exist the others wouldn't either since he was the first silver age hero?

It looks like a what if, what if Superman never came,or Batman never was... (I think it would be better if it was What if Hal never became a lantern) and Flash was the only hero type thing.

@ComicMan24:   well it's not really my theory...read it in a comment on another site but I think it works....also there's this image 


if you look at the top of the image there's guards standing in front of a huge metal door with the Superman shield on it...so unless they're doing multiple alternate realities then it seems like Superman did indeed make it to earth in this one

@danhimself: Yeah I have seen this pic. I think it will involve multiple timelines.

What is this series about? (or do we not know yet...?) Just a random Flash book?

same here....think of all the things that would change if Abin Sur's ship never crashed on earth...that was the only reason earthlings became Green Lanterns...that means no Guy Gardner, John Stewart, or Kyle Rayner.  Would Sinestro still be a Green Lantern?  What about Blackest Night?

I agree and the friendship between Barry and Hal never forming, could be very interesting

@danhimself: the image also has wonderwoman burning London, prehaps the war with the Amazons without the other heroes did not go that well. Paris flooded and a white lantern ring . Totally picking this up

updated with today's third teaser

#13 Posted by danhimself (22452 posts) - - Show Bio

actually now that I think about it...the third could be about Superman...since the pic above shows guards standing outside a huge metal door with the Superman shield on it....or it could be Martian Manhunter

So can someone please give a synopsis about the past Flashpoint series? What was this all about and does anyone think it relates to the upcoming flashpoint? 
 


Hal Jordan


Bruce Wayne (betting his parents never died)


Martian Manhunter


Kal-El

This must be about an alternate time line or someone that changes the past and the only one that knows it changed is Barry or maybe all of the Flashes. Maybe someone is systematically erasing the JLA and these super heroes from existence by making the life changing points in their lives never happen

@danhimself:
i never really thought about it that way obviously from my statements above but if they did narrow it down to just between Flash and the GLC than 
 

Abin Sur Never crashed


Could be Abin Sur landed and was captured


This could have become Hal's job if he was fired from Ferris Air Base. Or if he chose not to follow in his fathers foot steps


Someone could have stolen Abin sur's ring

@DEGRAAF:  I don't necessarily think that they're going to narrow it down to just Flash and Green Lantern since the one image has Wonder Woman, Batman, and the Superman door on it....I've actually got myself pretty convinced that the ship that never crashed was Abin's, the person experimented on is Superman, the Wayne casinos is pretty obviously Batman, as for the missing ring...I'm not to sure...it's most likely talking about Hal's...maybe since Abin didn't crash something else happened to him and if that's the case then his ring would have gone to someone else besides Hal....these of course are all guesses and I could be completely wrong

1-Abin Sur landing on Earth.  There is no event that would change teh corps history as much as that one.
2-Maybe its following on Dini's batman run, apparently it was Martha who made Thomas become the man he was, without her I don't see it far fetched that he would run casinos.
3-Superman. The flashpoint teaser has the army with an "S" door. We all know that the army is EVIIIIIIIIIIIIIL (at least in fiction)
4-You know? In the original teaser of Flashpoint Barry didn't have his flash ring, he insted had a ring with professor zoom's costume

@danhimself:
oooooohhhh... 
 
I didnt even think about them capturing and testing  on Superman. that would be a good one. 
 
I think you might be more on track then i am

I like the ring idea...I forgot completely about that image

Who do you think this would be? Im assuming Wonder Woman but married to who?
#22 Posted by DEGRAAF (7875 posts) - - Show Bio
@theMockingNoob:

I've seen comments: 
 
Wonder Woman and Ares 
Wonder Woman and Aquaman 
Aquaman and Mera 
Hippoltya and Hercules 
Wonder Woman and someone from U.S. 
Hippoltya and someone from the U.S.

Yea, two nations should have been on the verge of war. I didnt think about Hawkman. I thought that Star Saphire thing was just confusing for me

@DEGRAAF: Wonder Woman was a Star Sapphire during Blackest Night, and in Brightest Day, there is some involvement with the Star Sapphires and the Hawk people.  "
well the Star Sapphire rings are actually fueled by Hawkman and Hawkwoman's first crystalised bodies

@danhimself: 
 
Last one could be pretty much anyone who came out of a lab, Barry, Wally, Firestorm, Martian Manhunter... 
 
The two first practically have to be Superman and Batman, due to company policy :S
#29 Posted by Nighthunter (28582 posts) - - Show Bio

Hmm Wonder Woman and Aquaman?

Its connected with return of bruce wayne and time masters vanishing point. 
it will be about flash cleaning up the timeline,or to be more exact johns retconning away everything he doesnt like. 
would'nt be suprised if kyle was never born or something like that.

lol well according to this picture it looks like if Johns is retconning, he is getting rid of all the other Flashes, at some point wears the Reverse Flash costume (unless that is thawne that has his suit pop out of a ring just like Barry's and there is something about that Batman that is different. Im not sure if it is because he looks like he is falling thru the wall rather than in to it or because it looks like he might have a hood laying behind his cowl or just that he doesnt have those spikes coming off his arm like he normally does it it doesnt look right

when I was reading this, I liked the theory for the most part except it seemed like the obvious choice for the ship that never crashed being Steve Trevor but that's only because I don't think two spoilers would be about the same individual (GL) as that would sorta be lame IMO... 
 
but I probably won't read this story until 2017 or later so I'm not too bothered :P

@aztek the lost:

Steve Trevor? 
 
Why not until 2017, thats a ways away. 
 
DC's The Source already told us the lost ring is the Flashes.

because Steve Trevor would be the coolest option and therefore the one that it wouldn't be 
 
I'm not that interested in it, that's why 2017...I could say I'm going to read this but I have a list so large of comics I want to read that it could very possibly take until 2017 until this is the most interesting thing on the menu

@DEGRAAF: how do you get Wonder Woman and Aquaman out of that...maybe it's just me but the winged thing seems Thanagarian...I can't pair that with either Wonder Woman or Aquaman

#42 Posted by DEGRAAF (7875 posts) - - Show Bio
@aztek the lost:
I get Wonder Woman out of it because it looks like her WW symbol with winged tips. Plus a marriage between her land and his would make the most sense. I dont see how you  could see it as anyone else besieds those two
#43 Posted by aztek_the_lost (28224 posts) - - Show Bio
@DEGRAAF: I'm just saying that symbol isn't hers...though I suppose technically that's not Aquaman's symbol either...maybe you're right...but WW certainly isn't the first character to come to mind when I see that symbol
