Fair enough, although if TV really was their holy grail you'd think we would have got a half decent live action adaption by now
Yeah Time Trapper was Temporal Flux's theory right off the bat. It makes the most sense. Time travel seems closed off now as well given one of the teaser statements and what happened in Vanishing Point. I guess she is the linchpin to restore things if they want.
Like I said writig comics isn't the same as writing TV ( or movies) very few writers have made the transistion. Even the guys from TV who "slum" in comic can't always adjust to the medium. Different skill sets.
As for Purple Lady, she's probably the impetus for the mext megacrossover,
