Looking at the cover and title of this comicbook, you would think this is a Flash story. Actually, it’s a Barry Allen story. Sort of. He is the nexus of what appears to be an alternative reality where the division between heroes and villains is drastic, especially when we encounter the Batman letting a felon fall from upon high. Victor Stone aka Cyborg can’t even persuade him to help lead a force to take on Aquaman and Wonder Woman, who people have made their own kingdoms on Earth for the Atlanteans and Amazons. Bad news for us in the UK, as the Amazons made it their island. Even more so when Barry Allen discovers who the Batman really is but it I tell you that, he’s just as likely to come along and kill you.
This is a really deadly world and this is only the introduction from writer Geoff Johns with art by Andy Kubert inked by Sandra Hope. It is left to the reader to unravel what all this means but from my perspective, this is early days. Don’t lose your costume ring.
