I’ve been a big fan of the animated films that DC has been putting out over the last couple of years. The thing is though, the majority of them have been Superman and Batman adventures, films that have neglected the rest of the comic book characters that inhabit that world. But finally, one hero who has been around for decades is getting his due, as the Flash races forward to prevent all-out Armageddon in The Flashpoint Paradox

The comic book series that this particular film was based on, is notable for the fact that it was used to revamp and modernise the characters of DC comics. Again. Again. I kinda stopped counting after the Zero Hour mini-series, but DC usually cleans house in this manner every decade or so. It helped set up the New 52, where characters had newer, more modern looks and origins and gave everyone a clean slate with which to start fresh again.

But in the world that The Flash found himself before this timeline became permananet, things were pretty much crap. Bruce Wayne had died with his father taking on the mantle of the Batman, Superman had been captured by the army when he first landed on Earth and locked away in a containment cell for his entire life and Aquaman had a bone to pick with Wonder Woman.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
