Enjoying all the new stories and fresh takes on classic characters?
Don’t get used to em. See that “mysterious woman” over there in the center of that Flashpoint #5 spread? The one over looking the events of the Flash actually “creating” the new continuity. Well that “mysterious woman” is in every single #1 issue. Every one. Go look. I’ll wait. Couldn’t find her? Okay, here is an example . . . First frame, in the crowd. Click the picture to enlarge. See her? Okay now go flip through all your #1 relaunch comic books playing where’s Waldo because she’s in all of them. Observing.
If I had to guess (and I do since DC isn’t gonna just TELL me anything) she’s some mystical time keeper who will wait until things get out of control and it seems like all hope is lost for our heroes. Then she’ll set her watch back or some such nonsense and this will all have been for naught.
So enjoy buying all those comics kids. With some of them going for $3.99 a pop you’re making Jim Lee a happy man.
