I watched the world premiere of Flashpoint Paradox at San Diego Comic Con. I never read more than the first couple of issues of Flashpoint, but I got the gist of it: Flash creates alternate reality, things are different, all the superheroes want to kill each other and do. And then ultimately, none of it matters. Because here comes The New 52 Animated Universe.

Review with SPOILERS. (backofthehead.com)

God, I hope this isn't the case. Part of the fun of the animated DVD's has been the adaptation of classic stories to a new medium. Frank Miler's Dark Knight Returns? Great adaptation. Joe Kelly's What's So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way? Good adaptation. Mark Waid's Tower of Babel? Pretty decent adaptation. They have an endless catalog to pick from that it'd be a waste to just throw it all away for the sake of shoving The New 52 further down everyone's throats.

Prepare to have The New 52 shoved further down everyone's throats.

I do not support shoving down throats in any form, but even though that first JLA arc wasn't great, it might actually make for a decent animated flick. I am a sucker for anything Darkseid, even if I prefer my animated Cyborg in Teen Titans Go doses.

I concur. "Origin" probably has about a half hour of story to it if animated. I mean, practically nothing happens in Geoff Johns' comic except the Justice League fighting. This is actually a good opportunity for whoever's writing it to flesh out what happens and, you know, come up with an actual story.

Aren't The Flash and Batman wearing their New 52 costumes at the end of The Flashpoint Paradox? Different from what they were wearing in the beginning of the movie.

Disheartening. Though the idea of an animated version of the Court of Owls storyline does sound intriguing, should they decide to go in that direction at some point.

I can not believe this show airs on national television. I liked this episode - I liked it more than last week, in part because I didn't have the nostalgia for GI Joe - but it's so committed to being so completely weird and kind of exclusive.
