Clue

DC Comics is being rather enigmatic with the release of their most recent teaser, a poster featuring an odd line-up of characters which was accompanied only by the cryptic quotation: "Let the battle cry be heard in the land, a shout of great destruction..." Newsarama has posted a high-resolution version of the image for readers, noting that many of the secrets and clues hidden in the composition become evident only upon close examination. Naturally, I looked first to the scarlet speedster's eyes. Lo and behold, when one loads the high-resolution version of the teaser it can be seen that the Flash perched to one side of the State of Liberty's fallen crown has bright blue eyes. In other words, we're looking at the one and only Barry Allen and not his grandson! What does it all mean?

I think it's hard to conclude much of anything from an image that appears to include alternate universe versions of characters.

That kinda says all bets are off.

I guess it's not called a "teaser" for nothing. :-)


Btw, nice catch (re: the blue eyes).

You're quite right. The fact that this Flash is standing aside Kingdom Come's Red Robin and what appears to be an Elseworlds Batman seems to indicate that, as you said, all bets are off. It looks like they're just giving the fans something to gossip about.

Plus there've been a number of high-profile covers lately (JLA relaunch, anyone?) where DC has released preview art that didn't match the final cover, to the point of completely replacing characters. I wouldn't be too surprised to see Ambush Bug standing there by the time whatever book this is comes out.

Well, maybe not Ambush Bug, but you get the drift...
