Has anyone else read stuff that makes it sound like the pre-Flashpoint reality still exists? Wouldn't that mean Barry must have merged with his alternate in the nu52 reality, and that that cosmic being (Kismet?) lied to him about what was really happening? Did the pre-Flashpoint universe LOSE its Barry Allen?
What do YOU understand seems to be going on?
That the COIE never really happened, and that Flashpoint changed/altered the DC version of the marvel 616. but kept intact rest of the other earths/Universes, but kept them hidden and apart, but now they are popping up again...
BEST hope is for a real COIE, involving the New gods/Anti Moniter/darkseid, and have there be brought back the real DCU!
