But vengeance is coming in the form of Batman the Silenced…who will tear Tommy’s life apart!

Here, the event that changed the game for DC’s Super Heroes and Super-Villains is contaminated by the Dark Multiverse, courtesy of fan-favorite writer/artist Bryan Hitch (Hawkman, Justice League: Rebirth). Spinning out of the events of a world where a single choice by the Flash effected the entire DC Universe, find out what would have happened if Barry Allen had not put things right. If a world where the Flashpoint reality was never undone, where Thomas Wayne still haunts Gotham City as the Batman, and the Amazonian and Atlantean armies still prepare for war, will the Reverse Flash embrace this darker more deadly world and finally eclipse Barry Allen’s legacy?
