DC Comics and Infinite Frontier #1 Spoilers and Review follows.

Mysteries Abound!

Flashpoint Batman, Justice Society Of America (JSA), Black Lantern and More!

The book opens with the Flashpoint Batman crash-landing on President Superman’s Earth 23 and found by the Prez’s parents.

Then we a get a glimpse of the multiverse as we zoom in on Earth 0…

…where Extant has returned has returned, but is defeated by a combination of Green Lantern Alan Scott of the JSA and the Totality team (a blend of Justice League and Legion of Doom) intent on protecting reality.

Obsidian, GL’s son, is grappling with a lot…

…particularly the reality changing events of Dark Nights: Death Metal.

However, father and son do not have time to kibitz as the JSA mansion has been destroyed by a green light of some kind having both wondering and worrying about their daughter and sister Jade!

In Paris, Director Bones blackmails Cameron Chase to rejoin the Department of Extranormal Operations (DEO) to deal with the fallout of this new reality where everyone is aware that a multiverse exists.

Flashpoint Batman awakens on a ship in the Bleed and is greeted by Justice Incarnate.

Flashpoint Batman feels the Flash Barry Allen can explain what’s happened to him, but President Superman wants to know which Barry Allen is he referring to from across the multiverse.

Earth 0’s Barry Allen shows us he can hop  from multiverse Earth to Earth and if he tries something new…

…he can vibrate onto Earth Omega where…

…the drained husks of the godlike Quintessence lie and…

…where a new and improved Psycho Pirate teases that a new Crisis is coming, that he and the Flash are on the same side, and that Flash will help him and his boss, presumably Darkseid, find someone.

The book ends with X-Tract, and her new multiverse team, looking to extract Roy Harper who…

…is no longer Speedy, Arsenal or Red Arrow, but…

…the Black Lantern?!

The Pulse:

A new Crisis teased and many mysteries set-up in a compelling and rather human issue for such a cosmic context. Glad it was slightly over-sized. Art was decent too. 8 out of 10.
