Flashpoint (comics)

Flashpoint is a 2011 comic book crossover story arc published by DC Comics. Consisting of an eponymous core limited series and a number of tie-in titles, the storyline premiered in May 2011; the core miniseries was pencilled by Andy Kubert. In its end, the series radically changes the status quo for the DC Universe, leading into the publisher's 2011 relaunch, The New 52. Flashpoint details an altered DC Universe in which only Barry Allen seems to be aware of significant differences between the regular timeline and the altered one, including Cyborg's place as the world's quintessential hero, much like Superman is in the main timeline, with Superman himself being held captive as a lab-rat by the United States government within an underground facility in Metropolis. In addition, Thomas Wayne is Batman, a war between Wonder Woman and Aquaman has decimated western Europe. Consisting of a 61 issue run, the series crossed over with Booster Gold, sixteen separate three-issue miniseries, a number of one-shots beginning in June 2011.

DC announced. The storyline is adapted in the film Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox as well as in the third season of The CW network television series The Flash. At the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that Flashpoint will be adapted into a feature film as part of the DC Extended Universe. Barry Allen wakes up to discover everything and everyone around him has changed, he is not Flash, nor does he have powers. His mother Nora is alive. Captain Cold is Central City's greatest hero, the Justice League was never established, Superman is nonexistent. In Gotham City, Batman throws a criminal off a building. Cyborg and Batman have a conference with a group of superheroes to discuss how Wonder Woman's Amazons have conquered the United Kingdom, while Aquaman's Atlanteans have sunk the rest of Western Europe, the battle between the two has caused massive death and destruction. America is endangered; the heroes cannot cooperate to find a solution, the meeting is ended. Barry Allen drives to the Batcave.

Batman is revealed to be Thomas Wayne—in this timeline his son, was killed by the robber instead of his wife and himself. In this timeline, Thomas killed the robber who murdered Bruce, Martha went insane and became the Joker. In the flooded remains of Paris, Deathstroke captains a pirate ship in search of his daughter. Emperor Aquaman stabs Deathstroke in the chest and attacks Deathstroke's crew. Sonar is able to heal him. At Wayne Manor, Barry tries to explain to Thomas about his secret identity as the Flash and his relationship to Bruce Wayne. Barry's memory begins to spontaneously realign itself to the altered timeline and Barry realizes that the world of Flashpoint is not a parallel dimension, but an alternate reality. Barry's ring ejects Eobard Thawne's Reverse-Flash costume and causes Barry to believe that his enemy is responsible for changing history. Barry decides to recreate the accident that gave him his powers in a bid to undo the damage caused by Thawne, but his initial attempt fails and leaves him badly burned.

In London, Steve Trevor is waiting at a rendezvous for Lois Lane but is attacked by Wonder Woman and the Amazons. Wonder Woman begins interrogating him, he explains that he was hired to extract Lane from New Themyscira because she was sent to gather information on the Amazons for Cyborg. The U. S. president informs Cyborg that Steve Trevor sent a signal to the Resistance but was intercepted because of a traitor among the heroes that Cyborg tried to recruit. Cyborg is relieved of duty. Meanwhile, in New Themyscira, Lane encounters the Resistance. A second attempt at recreating Allen's accident restores his powers and health, he concludes. He learns that Kal-El was taken by Project: Superman. Flash and Cyborg join the cause to stop Wonder Woman and Aquaman; the three find a pale, weakened Superman at the Project and realize that he may well have been in a containment cell since he was a child—possibly never seeing a human being before. After being rescued, Superman flies off in seeming fright in the midst of a battle with the guards, leaving the three in the sewers to be rescued by Element Woman.

Flash's memories continue to change. The president announces Cyborg's failure to unite the world's superheroes and the U. S. enters into the Atlantean-Amazon war. Flash, Batman and Element Woman break down the door in need of the Marvel Family's help and Batman asks Billy to use his lightning to prevent Flash's memories from changing further; the group hears of the failed air assault on England due to the Amazons' Invisible Plane air force. Hal Jordan, who had not become Green Lantern in this timeline, is the first casualty, a giant Atlantean-generated tidal wave threatens the rest of New Themyscira. Flash tells Batman. Despite reservations, Batman joins Flash. Enchantress joins them en route. Wonder Woman and Aquaman are fighting one-on-one until Flash and his team arrive; the Marvel Family transform into Captain Thunder transforming Tawky Tawny. Captain Thunder attacks Wonder Woman and appears to be winning until Enchantress reveals herself as the Amazon spy in the Resis

Elfros

Elfros is a village within the Rural Municipality of Rural Municipality of Elfros No. 307, in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. It is northeast of Regina and southeast of the Quill Lakes at the junction of Highway 16 and Highway 35. Elfros was first settled by Icelandic immigrants, many of the present inhabitants are of Icelandic descent. A post office was opened in 1909. From the Icelandic Pioneer Memorial in Elfros comes the following quotation. "There were two waves of Icelandic settlement to and within Saskatchewan. The first group came directly from Iceland, paused in Winnipeg moved on to Saskatchewan; the second group trekked west from older settlements in North Dakota and Manitoba. In June 1882, the first Icelandic families came to Fishing Lake; the magnets were water. Settlements followed at Foam Lake, Leslie, Mt Hecla, Elfros, Wynyard and Dafoe, creating the largest Icelandic settlement outside of Iceland. Icelanders were not natural farmers, they were poets and visionaries, people who saw work as a means to an end.

Icelandic communities became cultural centres with bands and libraries. Icelanders built community halls. Many schools in the Vatnabyggd area have Icelandic names. Important celebrations included Torrablot, the First Day of Summer, Independence Day celebrations on June 17 and August 2. For spiritual nourishment, Icelanders relied on traveling preachers, meeting in homes and community halls; the Icelanders who came to Saskatchewan became competent farmers but saw the land as a means to improve conditions both for themselves and for their children. Aware of the value of family and community, they left a legacy of art, literacy and social responsibility." Elfros at Flickriver The Rural municipality of Elfros held centennial celebrations July 24–26, 2009.
