Everything has changed with the Flashpoint.

But before I get into that there is some back story needed for this. One day when Barry Allen was coming home from school he saw cop cars parked outside his house. Running as fast as he could he raced into his house to see his mother lying in a a pool of her own blood, the blame for this murder was placed on his father. Barry know his father did not commit the crime, so he spend his life trying to find evidence to prove it. Alas his father died of a heart attack in prison and Barry could not prove his innocence, during all of this Barry had the accident that made him into the World’s fastest man The Flash. This basically want you need to know for now. I will fill in the rest as I review the book.

This was the cause of the DCU to be rebooted into the new 52 and I will talk a little about the lady in pink.

The story starts off with Barry asleep at his desk and he hears Captain Cold is attacking and another of the Flash’s villains. As normal, Barry runs out to save the day. Only problem he does not have his ring where he stores his uniform and he ends up tripping down the stairs. Then he sees something he thought he would never see, his mom, alive. Barry kinda of happy and confused tell his mom and he is the Flash and needs to find out what is going on, his mom has no idea what he is talking about and when he ask her about the justice league again she does not know. When he mentions the Batman’s name and then she said everyone knows the Batman, so Barry heads to Gotham to see if Batman knows what is going on. Even though things changes, the Batman will always be there (Barry’s mom did not say that by the way), cut to a shot of Gotham and we see the Batman, looking different. A different symbol, Wayne casinos all over Gotham, and he seems a bit more angry than normal. Cyborg approaches the Batman asking him to join a group he is putting together to stop the world from being ripped apart by WonderWoman and Aquaman!

As I write this I wonder if I should actually spoil the story and the characters in the book, you have to read the book. You will be shocked at how Barry tries to get his powers back, who caused the change in the world  and What has happened to Superman? and how does Pandora play into this change in the whole universe(we will actually find this out in the new 52 series). So If you want it spolied for you I am going to post the entire (or important parts) after the break.
