So, I wasn't going to buy this. But I like big summer stories and I'm not buying Fear Itself...and I like Johns and Kubert. So...
I like a lot about this first issue...but the big thing that sucked me in...Bruce Wayne died as a child on this world and Thomas, his father, has become Batman. That's interesting...and he is a much more Golden Age-type killer Batman.
I like that Cyborg is the Superman of this world.
Having the Earth torn apart by an Atlantis/Themyscira war is interesting...sorry Europe. :(
The splitting of Captain Marvel's, here Captain Thunder, powers among six kids is a cool idea.
I wonder if the Outsider is Alfred?
I think I'll buy the main series along with the Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman/Lois, and Green Lantern tie-ins. And, maybe, the Deadman/Flying Graysons one if the art is as cool as the covers.
Well, yeah, that's what I though, but... okay, "nU," got it. I guess they couldn't call it "DCNU" because that would be "DC New Universe" (rather than "DC New"), and Marvel already has one of those.
Why not? For a while, it was one of Marvel's Star Brands. Justice once I'd like to see it get the respect it deserves.
Anyway... So far, all of the Flashpoint tie-ins have been very good. I especially liked the Grodd one-shot. Lots of political commentary in there.
Theory time: I suspect it will be revealed that Professor Zoom went back in time to each major hero's origin story and messed them up, causing the changes. That's one of the reasons Cyborg is America's leading hero; Zoom didn't think he was important enough to mess with.
