Can someone bring me up to date with Flashpoint please?? I'm reading the Hal Jordan and Abin Sure series. But its all confusing me...HELP!!!
Flashpoint isn't so hard to understand, basically, this is what you need to know:
-Reverse Flash (Prof. Zoom) actually changed time, and with this change, created a whole new Earth.
-Barry Allen (Flash) is the only one in this new world that knows what's happened, but has false memories of things that happened on this new world (similar to House of M if you ever read that). In this world, he never got his powers, but he got them restored with the help of this world's Batman.
-Bruce Wayne and his mother are dead, and the Batman of this world is Thomas Wayne, Bruce's Father. He, unlike Bruce, kills. The only reason he's helping Barry with anything is because he wants Flash to make it so he died and not Bruce.
-Wonder Woman and Aquaman are having a fierce war, and because of this, Europe is pretty much destroyed and the superhumans aren't really trusted.
-Cyborg is trying to recruit a band of heroes to stop the war between the Amazons and Atlantians. He tried to get Batman, but he wanted no part of it. With Batman out, nobody else wanted in. It wasn't until Barry needed Cyborg's help that Batman decided to help Cyborg.
-In order to fix things, Barry needs the help of one of the Earth's most powerful beings: Superman. To get to Superman, Barry got Cyborg and Batman's help.
-In this world, Kal-El's spaceship crashed in Metropolis, leveling it. The government seized the ship and the baby and did many experiments on him. They called it Project Superman. Kal-El, who was never given a human identity, has never seen the world or was never under Earth's yellow sun, making him powerless. Barry, Batman, and Cyborg freed him from this holding, where he flew off and disappeared.
-The last issue hinted that we're going to see Barry try to get a hold of Captain Marvel.
