2021 is the 10 year anniversary of Flashpoint, which is arguably the most impactful event mini-series in the DC pantheon since Crisis on Infinite Earths. In the Flashpoint continuity, there was no Justice League to save the world from the impending war between the Amazons and Atlantis, Bruce Wayne wasn’t Batman and Superman was a lab experiment.
After Flashpoint…well, as was said at the end of The Neverending Story, “That is a story for another time.”
Meanwhile, I’ll be covering the Flashpoint tie-ins that star characters who were members of various Justice League teams prior to Flashpoint. You don’t have to read every series/book listed below. Simply pick your favorites and have fun!
Here’s a look at what you can race into as you celebrate Flashpoint’s big 1-0 !
- Booster Gold #'s 44, 45, 46 and 47
- Flashpoint: Batman: Knight of Vengeance #'s 1, 2 and 3
- Flashpoint: Emperor Aquaman #'s 1, 2 and 3
