The world of Flashpoint is going to be revisited by DC Comics with a new series by writers Geoff Johns, Jeremy Adams Tim Sheridan, and artist Xermánico. ‘Flashpoint Beyond’ is a six-part miniseries that will Thomas Wayne as Batman who will breach the base of the tyrant sea king Aquaman.
“Everyone working on these books is giving it their all to deliver something that is worth the readers’ time in this competitive landscape of entertainment,” Johns told DC Universe. “This is for fans of big DC events and the great history of DC when it comes to comic books. And even though this is an event, it’s focused on character over concept – it’s the story of Thomas Wayne Batman, a Barry Allen that could’ve been, the crimes of Bruce Wayne – it’s a murder mystery, a secret mission and a look into the past, present and future of the continuum of DC. And as dark as it can get in this upside down world of FLASHPOINT, it’s fun.”
DC Comics describes the plot as “After sacrificing everything to help The Flash put the universe back together and save Bruce Wayne’s life, Thomas Wayne wakes up in a world he thought was no more. Forced to don the cowl once again, Batman prowls the streets of Gotham City searching for answers to how this world still exists, but what he starts to uncover will send him hurtling around the globe. The hunt for the Clockwork Killer starts here!”
“Batman’s hunt for the Clockwork Killer brings him to Europe and face to face with the mad king, Aquaman. On the eve of Aquaman’s sinking of London, Batman infiltrates his stronghold and goes on the warpath for answers. Nothing matters to Batman, whose world is already dead, but if he can track down the Clockwork Killer, Thomas can save his son’s world and put everything back together again,” they continue.
DC Nation also released a “first look” at the first issue’s cover in the series:
