An announcement about Flashpoint Fridays, in which DC will release details about the storyline every Friday up until the debut of the story! All I know so far is that it involves the Fl... *Zzzzz* *Snort* Sorry, all mention of Barry Allen makes be fall asleep.

Anyways, link,

Teaser of the storyline, apparently it involves mysterious forces changing the past and remaking the world. You know, like they attempted to do in the current Wonder Woman run, only people were more interested in the fact that she now wore trousers?

And thus, another summer event centred around another of Geoff Johns' personality-less white folk dawns, huzzah!

There doesn't seem to be much 'prevent war' going on if an armored WW is standing in front of a burning Big Ben!

A Themyscira/Atlantis alliance would be quite fearsome...

I presume they mean war between the two nations--and don't forget that Paris was also being flooded...

Yea. "Themyscira and Atlantis prevent war with each other, team up and beat everyone else," seems to be the vibe I'm getting.

And there is precedent for it--I remember Diana and Arthur being friendly, even flirty during Morrison's run of JLA.

Yea, it threw me off until I remember that.

I am curious how they'll handle the relationship/who's in charge. It seems the easiest place for things to not be done well, but it could potentially be very cool.

I'm hoping it'll be like Aquaman and Mera--where the two are just pretty much equals in terms of partnership and in badassery.

Speaking of which--one of the things I'm curious about with that is if Aquaman is marrying Wonder Woman in this alt-timeline, where's Mera, and the rest of her Aqua-dimension?

Didn't Arthur become King of Atlantis by marrying Mera? How's he going to get that power if he marries Diana?
