For the uninitiated, “Flashpoint” is a time-twisting 2011 DC Comics crossover event that was written by Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, with art by Andy Kubert and immediately preceded the New 52 initiative (which, ironically, just ended in 2016). In the story, Barry Allen wakes up in an alternate reality where his mother is still alive and he doesn’t have his powers, which means he isn’t The Flash. However, those aren’t the only changes. In this topsy-turvy world, Superman is a scrawny boy because he’s never seen the sun since the government captured him when he landed on Earth; Thomas Wayne is a ruthless version of the Batman because his son Bruce murdered and wife Martha becomes the Joker; Aquaman and Wonder Woman are at war; and Cyborg is the world’s most popular superhero — like we said, topsy turvy. The twist in the story is that Barry discovers he caused this alternate reality when he traveled back in time to save his mom from being murdered. So, Barry embarks on a quest to regain his powers and restore the timeline before Aquaman and Wonder Woman’s war destroys the planet, which is a likely possibility. While he succeeds in defeating the Reverse Flash, his attempts to fix the timeline still led to the continuity changes that were trademarks of the New 52, which rebooted the entire DC Comics universe.
