Regardless of whether DCU characters and titles should ever be intended for children...
I found it poetic in a way how Flashpoint
bookended my tenure as a DCU fan. I came on board more fully because of the consequences of Crisis on Infinite Earths
. And because of Flashpoint
, the only DC-published title I now buy is Astro City
under the Vertigo label.
The same formula of grand crossovers creating line-wide reboots and relaunches that hooked me in the first place was what led me to the exit.
