?DC hasn’t sent me a copy of its new Flashpoint comic event to my knowledge, so honestly, I don’t know what the hell it’s about. I think it’s about Flash running (zing!) into a parallel DC universe where shit happened differently — not like part of the multiverse (although it’ll probably end up as one anyways), but more like Marvel’s House of M silliness. Anyways,things are different in Flashpoint, and the biggest change — according to my inbox, at least — is on the last page of issue #1. It’s after the jump, and is a major spoiler, so watch out.
?Batman is Thomas Wayne, Bruce’s dad. Because Martha Wayne and little Brucie were gunned down in Crime Alley, leaving Thomas the duty to dress like a Batman and kick criminals in the nuts. To me, this raises the question of how old this Batman is, and where Thomas found the time to do all that combat training, but maybe the comic has some answers. If so, feel free to share them in the comments. Anyways, thanks to David E. for the tip. (Via Cosmic Book News)
