"Christoper Priest is an amazing guy whose work I’ve admired for a long time, and he has an incredibly keen take on how Deathstroke works. At any point whether there was a doubt how to handle things, I would talk to him and we would sort of make it work because he had a very, very clear view of the way things would work. I think ultimately it could have been much harder to do, but it was a real pleasure to do because we got in step with each other and understood how he operated. I think this is in terms of villains pulling shocks and surprises, the idea that he’s almost not operating as a villain, he’s coming to them almost more openly than he’s ever done before and say I’ve got a problem that I wish to solve and you can help me do it makes it, I think that’s why it’s a very compelling story." - Dan Abnett

He really should have told him the truth. Flash based time travel is utter bullshit that ALWAYS ends badly for everone.

Agreed - that's why I'm glad traveling back has become this taboo-level sin for the Flash books. I don't know if that's because of the reaction to Flashpoint/New 52, but in any case, it puts the "why doesn't Flash just travel back and fix everything, every time?" nitpick in check.

They should probably make some narrative legislation for DC's time-travellers. Like, say, Booster Gold time travel is safe, but resource-intensive and less capable of overriding fixed points in time; Flash time-travel is easy and malleable, but uncontrollably hyper-consequential.

Slade should have asked Reverse Flash, for whatever reason that guy gets a pass at altering the timeline.

I actually have nothing for Reverse Flash. New 52 Reverse Flash, sure. Even CW Reverse Flash, but Original Recipe Reverse Flash, no.

His deadness might put a ding in his favor-granting mood, though.

Eh, Wally got pretty good at it when Waid was writing. Of course, he mostly used it either to complete causal loops or to undo the meddling of other time travelers--but then, successful time travel pretty much has to result in a causal loop.

Bart Allen and Jenni Ognats managed to do positive things in their pasts, too. It's kind of just Barry and John Fox that really suck at it.
