Justice League The Flashpoint Paradox


Adapted to animated film from the DC Comics Flashpoint mini-series, Justice League The Flashpoint Paradox introduces an entirely different DC Universe than seen in the comic books.
 
In the Flashpoint Universe, Bruce Wayne's father didn't get killed, he did and his father is Batman.  Superman is a captured alien deprived from the life-giving yellow rays of the sun, Wonder Woman and Aquaman are two former lovers now waging a war between Atlantis and Paradise island that threatens to destroy the world, the Justice League does not exist and the Flash is deprived of his speed.

How did this all come about?  Blame the Flash.  A simple change he made in his timeline completely altered Earth's timeline resulting in Armageddon.  

When Barry Allen wakes up at his desk he is unaware of any changes-until he tries to run like the Flash.  Suddenly he finds himself caught up in an entirely new world and it's up to him to set things right-no matter the cost.

The new DVD from Warner Bros. Animation features one of the most powerful lime travel stories ever created and it is sure to catch DC Comic fans by surprise.  Dynamically animated and expertly written and recorded by voice actors it deserves a prominent place in any DC Comics or comic book fan's DVD library.

Also included on the DVD is a sneak peek at the upcoming Justice League: War animated feature film.
