Geoff Johns Trope #1: "They have similar colour schemes, therefore they must be related somehow!"

I know, just teasing this time. :~P Though I will retract that if the next person to get zapped is Firestorm Hourman, or any of the Sinestro Corps...

I don't think that was presented as anything but a coincidence?

Just finished this! Takeaways:

- The minute countdown was great, but this issue read too much like build-up, even more than a normal Part One issue should feel like. Flash might have the meatier parts of the story.

- Excellent art. And this is coming from a book with Mikel Janin as regular artist. That's crazy.

- Hi, Thawne. Bye, Thawne. And then hi, Thawne, again, according to DC's solicits.

- Why would Dr. M disintegrate Reverse-Flash partway through? Has he done that during Watchmen?

- Also, is it Reverse-Flash or Reverse Flash?

- There was one scene that stood out, though - truly, fuck Thawne for disintegrating Thomas' letter. That was one of the lowest of blows in the history of kicking Batman in the penis.

Feels like the half-melting is just for the visual parallel with Jon's own original disintegration - but in-story it's probably because Bats has cameras trained on his entire cave and Jon wants to send him a message.

Yeah, I can buy both these assumptions.

Wait, how can Reverse Flash be dead if he is popping up in the next major Flash arc, "Running Scared"?
Aso, can anyone tell me what happened with Saturn Girl?

As Thawne says here, he shouldn't be alive at this point as he was "scheduled" to come back for the Flash arc. Someone/something caused him to have an unscheduled resurrection so that he, not Batman, would be the one to activate the Button.

This Thawne is probably from after the events of Running Scared. that's the funny thing with time travelers, you can kill them and have them be alive at the same time

Okay someone mind telling the noob who just tuned in; what does The Comedian have to do with this?

The button is the most iconic image of Watchmen. And Watchmen is supposedly the baddies of the next big event (though given how it reacted to Psycho Pirate's mask, it might be Grant Morrison all along).

Dr Manhattan caused 'The New 52' and they needed a visual shorthand to show that the Bat-Cave was compromised.

However, another fan-theory (that I'd find intriguing!) is that it was planted there by the Comedian himself - and that all along he was one of the three Jokers revealed in Rebirth (maybe the classic one, or maybe the Killing Joke one because they're both Moore creations).

I hope that doesn't happen, it'd be OOC for Comedian and Joker. Comedian has some degree of morals that he was horrified at what was being planned for the end, Joker would probably find it funny.

I can't wait for that last image to be used in a "true comic book facts" image macro to show that Batman once stalemated Zoom.

This whole thing just leaves a bad taste in my mouth given how DC treated Moore with the rights. I can understand if not condone not wanting to give the rights to a cash cow back but doing this is just spitting in his face all over again.
