Another issue trying to retroactively show that there was always a story here when it is obvious that King was too lazy to do anything of the sort and needed these last dozen or so issues to cover his own tracks. We were supposed to get the answers to Thomas Wayne, but I guess it's the questions that King didn't understand, namely, how was there a Flashpoint timeline for him to come from and why more

Putting in quotes from writers can be good, I actually like that, but in Kings story it feels out of place.

CaptnAmerca - Dec 13, 2019

What do you mean, "how did he escape the Flashpoint timeline?" He jogged away from the end of the universe! Man, you are just too dense to understand the greatness of Tom King!
