Longbox Junk - Flashpoint

649 views • May 3, '17 • (0) Comments

I MIGHT be in the minority of comic fans when I confess that I actually LIKED the New 52.  Okay, they really messed up Superman and they're STILL trying to fix him to this very day, but I was never much of a Superman fan to begin with.  And they really, REALLY wanted to sell Cyborg as a major player for some reason (and never really succeeded), but once again, not really a fan.  And then there was Huntress.  Okay. . .Huntress I can be pissed about. And Azrael.  And Tim Drake. And Oracle.

Okay.  I guess it wasn't ALL good.  But for the most part, I liked the New 52.  Flashpoint is where it all started.  Let's take a little refresher course, since DC seems to bringing some Flashpoint back into Rebirth. . .

I might be in the minority here, but I really enjoyed DC's Flashpoint event.  Once they rebooted everything into the New 52 I thought that it was sort of a shame that they didn't continue a few of the titles as a sort of anthology title in a side universe remnant of the cataclysmic events that led to the formation of DC's "new" universe. . .but hey, I don't make the comic books.  I just read them.  Just saying I really liked the whole "Elseworlds" feel of the Flashpoint books and it feels like DC sort of wasted an opportunity.
