This Just Happened: The Kryptonians Face Off in EARTH 2!

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read EARTH 2 #25 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).

Apokolips and the forces of Darkseid are looming, we see one Kryptonian against another – and the weight of the world is on them both!

FLASHPOINT FRIDAY: Kid Flash vs. The Speed Force

In order to catch up to his grandfather, Bart Allen will have to race against the speed force itself. As he is bounced around through time collecting multi-dimensional speed force energy from various members of the Flash family, Bart needs to gain all of the necessary tools to reach Barry in time to deliver a message that could save the universe.

“I’m going to outthink the greatest criminal mastermind the universe has ever seen.”

Lost in the speed force, Kid Flash is trapped in a distorted future world. After a startling revelation, Bart Allen realizes he must surrender himself to the criminal mastermind, Braniac. Only then will he be able to manipulate his way back to a point in time that he (at least somewhat) recognizes and seek out his grandfather. But what happens if Braniac catches on to Bart’s plan?

THE OUTSIDERS #18 hits 5/20.
