Previous Post

Someone on the Superman board said that his understanding was that a bad guy for some reason can change the past and even kill people, but if a hero tries to fix the timeline, some force stops THAT change of history.

In other words, bad guys changing the past by doing bad stuff (even murder) is fine, but heroes trying to SAVE people by undoing the change is a no-no.

Only having seen bits and pieces of FLASHPOINT, I'm no expert.

Can someone respond to the assertion described above? Did FLASHPOINT establish such a crazy "rule" regarding time-travel and changing the past?

Uhh no, nothing like that. It is just that there are different forms of timetravel, some allow to change the past and some don't(meaning that the writers make it up as they go along).
It is generally understood that altering the past is a BIG NO NO(unless it is to undo some distopian future or the Legion of Superheroes does it, then it is OK! ;\-\) ), but villains, especially crazy nutters like Reverse Flash don't give a hoot about the possible consequences.
