Hint They're Tying the Revamp into Flashpoint

#1 Posted by Mercy_ (92523 posts) - - Show Bio

I was hoping against hope that DC would be tying the revamp into Flashpoint instead of just y'know...doing it.

Yesterday the (full) roster of the Justice League was released

And in it we see Element Woman, a character who has so far appeared only in Flashpoint and leads me to believe that the revamp will have something to do with the Flashpoint story arc.

It is quite possible. I would like to see more of Element Woman. But I doubt that it Power Girl.

Would love to see the Outsider and the SHAZAM agents also moving through to the new universe. 
 
Abin sur too but it would be too much to ask wouldn't it?

Gracias. Very nice image. 
 
I also hope that Shazam could transfer through..not quite sure I would want his character dependent on 7 kids coming together all the time though =\

De nada. If you have a tumblr, you should follow them. There's tons of awesome stuff on there :)

I agree, not sure how much I enjoy that take on the character. Of course, they could end up doing kind of an Age of X thing and use Flashpoint to explain it and keep bits and pieces from it (Chamber, Revenant, memories etc), instead of changing the status quo to the Flashpoint universe, which it doesn't really seem like they're doing.

Then again. This is what DC did with the classical form of Captain Marvel:

@Nighthunter: Yeah, they definitely have little to no respect for the Marvel family.

@Nighthunter: Zealot? Pretty interesting choice. I would like to see her there.
 
They just don't know what to do with the Marvels.

which is ironic considering that Johns loves the family and gets them.

And she does appear to have white hair as opposed to blonde. Good call.

Very true.

They don't at all. That scene was just saddening. Seemed like the final nail they were going to put into the coffin of the Marvel family.

I think it's more sad than anything.

It is a very interesting line-up. I like it. I would like to see Martian Manhunter back though. Still not sure about him being in Stromwatch.

oh and on topic. I'm pretty sure that the Canterbury Cricket will also go on to the new universe. No way that DC would give him his own one-shot if not

Oooh, good point!

I'm actually really excited about it (likely) being her.

 Who is the Canterbury Cricket?

Besides Blackout...is there any other original character of the Flashpoint universe?

Blackout? Never heard of him before but I haven't read all the tie-ins. Well the Outsider and Element Woman, although based on previous characters, seem to be new.
#23 Posted by Nighthunter (28580 posts) - - Show Bio

Blackout was in the first issue of Flashpoint actually, oh and I meant besides the characters that we already mentioned
 

Blackout and Outsider

Ohh I remember him now. Well Penthesilea from the Amazons seem to be new.

Mindwarp is new

I don't think this is any real surprise...the last issue of the reality warping miniseries Flashpoint comes out in September and the new JLA book comes out the same day

Element Woman is lame compared to "metamorpho" and "shift." Better name please. And didn't Sandman have a female metamorpho-like character?

Former Wildstorm characters have also started to surface in Flashpoint which leads me to believe they'll be integrated into the canon DCU during the revamp.

I had assumed Flashpoint was going to kick this all of somehow anyway, from an outside perspective it seems natural.

hasn't that already been established what with Martian Manhunter being part of Stormwatch?

@danhimself: Yup, but we actually see Grifter in Flashpoint which was unexpected.

Just a note; Johns has said the mystery woman is not a blond and none of the guesses he's see has been the right one.
