Poll: Flashpoint comic or Movie (55 votes)

Movie 53%
Comic 44%

I think the movie was better. The Movie was more to the point and the conversations felt more natural IMO. The comic was great but the conversations were too drawn out, and the action was short but still stunning. The movie was better IMO. What do you think?

Both were great.

I'll vote comic, simply because I hated the animation in the movie.

I liked both, but I kinda like the comic better.

I really liked the movie, and, in the comics, I really liked the main story Flashpoint comics (by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert), Azzarello's Batman tie-in, and Project Superman by Scott Snyder. Most of the other tie-ins that I read really weren't that good, so I voted movie. The movie was just more cohesive and better overall.

The movie, because of the beginning with young Barry.

The comics are definitely more extensive, especially if you include the tie-ins, but the movie is very well done, they cover a lot of the story in a limited time. Gotta go with movie.

I hate how the movie had Batman shoot Thawne in the head, the comic was better when he stabbed him.

The comic. The movie excluded the scene at the end where Barry confesses everything to his mom which was easily my favorite scene. Then if you add in the tie-in comics you get that amazing Batman arc and I really liked Booster's tie-in too.

The comic was the far superior. I didn't really like the animation style of Flashpoint: Paradox, and Zoom just wasn't the same.

I liked both but the movie was a bit more WOW!

#26 Posted by Alak (926 posts) - - Show Bio

I like the movie more since it was more cohesive. The comics were a hit-or-miss for me. Sure, the animation had its unique style, but I certainly didn't mind as long as it was consistent. I considered it to be an artistic spin on the piece and it certainly did not detract from its entertainment value.

Almost mirror of each-other. The movie had more action, so the movie

Everyone keeps taking away points from the movie because it doesn't have as much detail as the tie ins, do you have any idea how long it would be if it included all the tie ins?? It stuck to the main Flashpoint story, and did a fantastic job of it.

Plus, I've always thought this opening should be what they use for a live action Flash movie

comic, but they are basically the same. I went for comic because I prefer comics and wanted to go with the source material. However the film is good because might be more accessible and any action sequences are better in the film than the comic.

Man, a lot of people hate the animation style for some reason.

Professor Zoom looked really weird. I don't ever remember him having a chin that massive. Same goes for Batman.

i liked the "didn't any one ever tell you not to stop moving during a war" line so the comic wins

While I did like the comic I preferred the movie. Like others said, it was much more cohesive and less derivative. It also had what I felt was better pacing and managed to include a great amount of the Flashpoint backstory despite the short run time. The movie also felt a bit more depressing than the original and I did like that as well.

I didn't mind the character designs although I wasn't too fond of some of the more violent scenes towards the end (namely Billy and Zoom's deaths, which I felt were overly graphic and added very little to the story compared to the originals). Also, I do miss that final scene with Barry and his mom.
