  1. I understand (but disagree with) your points about Cyborg’s exposition, I understand (but disagree with) your point about Barry’s confusion, I understand (but disagree with) your point about this coming across as a preview for the tie-ins.

    But I’m very much confused when you say this reminded you of great elseworld stories but that it’s somehow a bad thing because you think Johns forbade creators to write elseworld stories and stole thsoe ideas to put in Flashpoint. Do you seriously think that’s what happened? That’s a dramatically tenuous conclusion to draw and I’d say it borders on trolling.

  2. I’m sorry that may have come off wrong. I by no means meant that Johns was the one forebading new elseworlds stories. What I meant by that was that there have not been any elseworlds stories in quite awhile (excluding things like All Star Superman and such that happened so rarely) and it seemed like Johns was throwing in everyones ideas for different elseworlds stories into this one book. I know that is not what happened but that is how it came off to me.

    Thank you for the criticism and I by no means meant for this to come off as trolling. I was just very let down by this issue as the beginning of a company wide event (as I am by Fear Itself).

  3. @Parker  Fair enough then.

  4. I didn’t get the impression that this was trolling at all, just your opinion, reaction, and impression on the book.
