If you are a fan of the DC world, you must have heard a story called Flashpoint. Officially released 6 years ago, it introduces viewers to a much darker image than the DC version we have seen. In that world, the Earth stands on the brink of destruction due to the betrayal, envy and jealousy of those who should have surpassed themselves to protect humans. In that world… blood, tears and death permeate every step of those who call themselves Super hero.
Flashpoint begins the story with Flash, who wakes up to find the world and people around him changed overnight.. Above all, he – Barry Allen, is no longer a superhero named Flash with the power of speed in his hands. He was simply an ordinary man with his mother still alive and his father lost to heart disease instead of dying in prison like the old life he knew. In this reality, the villain Captain Cold becomes the hero of Central City, the Justice League was never established, and Superman is an unfamiliar term to everyone but Barry Allen himself.
But perhaps the most dramatic change to reality Barry has ever known was Batman. Bruce Wayne didn’t lose his parents, didn’t grow up with a broken heart, and became Batman. The Bruce Wayne we know died as a child at the gunpoint of Joe Chill in the infamous Crime Alley. So who becomes the Batman of this world? It was Thomas Wayne – the father of the Dark Knight, who was supposed to die with his wife.. But on that fateful night, young Bruce Wayne became a victim. Witnessing the collapse of his young son, Thomas Wayne ignited an excruciating hatred within himself and put on Batman’s cape.
However, instead of becoming the Batman image that we know, he did not hesitate to kill anyone who dared to step into the path of crime. With a pair of pistols in hand, he is ready to take the life of anyone he considers unworthy to live. When Joe Chill was found, instead of poisoning him as planned.. “Batman” decided to beat his son’s killer to death with his bare hands. But the more heartbreaking story from Bruce Wayne’s death lies with the mother. Witnessing her son’s death, she fell into a frenzy and slashed her own face.. “painted” on her face a weird smile with scribbled stitches. From that moment, she became Joker.
Ironically, a sadistic Batman who doesn’t mind killing can never take action against the biggest enemy of his life… and also the person he loves most: the Joker.
But pain and tears are not the only things that this world nurtures… because there is also jealousy and animosity hidden there, as shown by two names. Wonder Woman and Aquaman. There when Wonder Woman’s mother died at Aquaman’s wedding, she took revenge by killing Mera – the wife of “Emperor Alantis”, sparking a war between the two most powerful armies on Earth. In the war between the two sides, it was Aquaman that caused the whole of Western Europe to sink to the bottom of the ocean… claiming the lives of more than 60 million people.
So where is the strongest man on Earth, the son of Kryton blood in the mess? Well in this world, the spaceship that carried Superman didn’t leave the Kansas fields and was adopted by the Kents… but instead plunged straight into Metropolis and fell into the hands of the government. There he became an experimental subject and was imprisoned in a secret facility, unable to see sunlight. Therefore, Superman did not receive any power and was just a weak man who lived in the dark for most of his adult life.
Barry Allen couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw that scene and he wanted to bring it all back to the past reality. And only by regaining his strength, using speed to travel back to the past, can he save the world from destruction.. With the help of the Batman of this world, Barry hopes to be able to restore the ear. accident give him the power of speed and return to the past..
