This will go down in history as the justification for New 52. And as that, it's a step above a Superboy punch. I think the biggest problem here is the length. There's only five issues in Flashpoint, which is almost insanely short for an event of this magnitude. We barely get a chance to see this new world. I understand that a lot of the exposition is actually handled in the side miniseries', but since I didn't read those, I had no clue what motivated Wonder Woman or Aquaman. What is actually on the page is decently written, though, and there are a few really effective moments scattered through there. I imagine that, with another couple of issues, this would have been a much better and more interesting series.
