DC Fixes Major Mistake In Geoff Johns’ Free FLASHPOINT #1 Preview


So, on the left we have the BEFORE image. The last panel led to speculation that a new Speedster was to be part of Flashpoint. I remarked that if that was the case, that it would be a major blunder on DC’s part, but I thought the colouring on the female speedster on the bottom right corner of the last panel was deliberate.

So, I was half right according to our friends at Speed Force. Yes, it was a blunder. No, the colouring was not deliberate. Check out the panel to your right which I loving call the AFTER image. Notice the colour fix?

It was supposed to be XS, the Flash descendent in the Legion of Super-Heroes’ 31rst Century, all along.

Does this mean that the Flashpoint #1 FCBD preview will become an error edition valuable book on the secondary market? Stay tuned.
